There are a couple ways to load your braid or monofilament mainline onto the Pro Release.
1. You can wrap the bobbin and get all the benefits of it's unique design. When wrapping around the bobbin, It is important to load the fishing line correctly. Open the bobbin, lay the line on the inside of the bobbin, and proceed to wrap. When the bobbin closes, the line from the rod tip should be enclosed in the cavity behind the bobbin. The bobbin should close securely, and the wraps should be held by the rubber wheel. See pictures and videos. It's not real complicated, it just takes alot of words to describe how and why everything works as it does.
Do not start wrapping from behind the bobbin as it will flip over when you deploy it.
To cover all the bases, here are things to keep in mind with the Pro Release.
Due to it's unique design, the Pro Release is a little different when it comes to bait checks or manual releasing. You will be able to just lift the rod moderately until the bobbin opens, and let the terminal tackle pull the line off the bobbin. If it doesn't release immediately from the bobbin, Throw a little slack toward the release to let the gear pull the wraps off.
Also, because it can be set to release at extreme pressures, it is possible to have it set way too tight so the fish and/or you aren't able to release it. You want to have it set just tight enough so that it doesn't false release, but releases on a bite. You don't want it so tight that the bobbin can't open with the rod you are using or the fish you are targeting. I did have one customer set it way too tight and then got the hooks stuck on the bottom. The braided line spun around the bobbin thousands of times as the line payed out and grooved the bobbin. Please don't set it way to tight for your conditions, but if you do, I will gladly send you a new one :)
2. You can spin a loop like with other releases. Many of my expert Kokanee customers prefer this method, because it's quick, it's what they are used to, it works perfect, and you don't have to worry about wrapping the bobbin.
Please remember, it is probably a good idea to install the bolt/spring so that the thumb-nut is pointing down when deployed. I pretty much build them all the same, so for the other side of the boat, you should remove and re-install the bolt/spring so it is pointing down with the jaws of the release facing you.
