I don't know about anyone else but I like to label my spools with the name and weight of the line on it.
I have several Barrio lines, well 5 actually and another on the way,  presently I peel the label off the box as carefully as I can to affix to the spool,  not always successfully.
It would be a boon (to me at least) to have a spare label in the box.  Is this too cheeky a request?  :oops :cool:

Thanks George, I'll put some thought into that :z16

Meantime, if you let me know which lines you'd like them for via email, I can send you some labels like the ones on the boxes.

Best wishes

Aye that would be a good shout. Well perhaps not from a line sales point of view to be  fair. I currently have three 6# slxs for instance 😅

If I couod remember what size and type of line it is with minimal faffing I'd be happy to see that 👍

A pound at the Range 👍 and solvent takes it off if you need too.

That is probably going to work a lot better than stickers Sandy  :z16

The stickers break down when wet in my experience.

None of my reels or spools, or even lines on plastic spools are marked.

I love the anticipation of setting a rod up on the bank and wondering if the line you have is the correct weight.

Its sort of Russian Roulette with a line ;)
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....

Must confess that I used to lose track of which lines I had on which reels all the time  :oops  but a few years ago I started to write the line info on the back of my reel pouches with a permanent marker pen :z16

I haven't really thought about it since ...... so I guess I can now tick that box as a winner :z17

I used to put stickers on the spools back in the fishery days ( when I had about 50 reels/spools in the hut ) but these invariably came off, or perished ..... and I had to resort to casting the lines on a few rods to work them out.

Cheers
