I spun my compact Skagit off my reel to give the Rage another chance, this time with a shorter leader. Nice, but I wanted to put the CS back on so I could cast sink tips in the cloudy water. But putting the CS back on gave me pause since I couldn' t remember which end goes on the reel. (I had coiled it up without a tip on.) The Rage has Lazer printing on a loop, but the Compact just has a black loop and a green loop. I eye-balled the tapers, and decided to try the green end towards the reel. Casts pretty well if it's backwards.
