    ...can't tell you how many times this happened to me before I started stowing my spools in a pocket.

    ....I personaly agree with the "Bert Wilcher theory on spools/reels"....."they all suck!"
    We just have to offset the inherant problems and potential design flaws by being more proficient with them through repitition.

    The big differance with wrecks boils down to is it sanitised and cut to be only cavern level penetration, or is it full cave/full penetration. In my kneck of the woods poor vis, changing vis, and current prompt me to allways run line inside and out. I learned the hard way about doing visual jumps outside of a wreck from one pile of crap to another to never do it inside. When diving with others not trained we do do the tie off inside in a light zone to not encourage looky loos to follow. I have no desire to ever cave dive /just keep posting the video/ and if I did I would not visual jump.

    I have a splice in my best wreck reel at 78' -courtesy of the Mohawk. Long story best left for another time, but those piles of junk really do start looking alike...

    Neither did I. :D
