have it spooled at a shop. they will back it for you (make sure they don't overdo it on the backing to save braid) careful, as the larger # spools of braids tend to stay on the shelves for a long period of time and although it is sturdy, heat/cold imo, takes it's toll on the chit. a 500yd spool of 65# PP may just suffice with mono backing. if spooling at a shop you will wanna dump it off the boat till it's almost gone and pack it on wet before using it. "or pack the 500yd spool on wet. (roc's suggestion of a bucket of water with a dowel the size of inside dia. of bucket to hold spool seems the logical way to do it)
braid to braid? i see no reason for it but for emergency splicing of it for some reason and well, i pass on that one.
braid to mono - alberto knot - will take a few try's to get it right with 65# and fluoro. but i'm fussy about the knot to begin with.
the "slim beauty" is used with success as well.
Power Pro is my choice.
most definately will have other suggestions but 65# power pro has lasted 4 seasons at least on some of my baitfishing gear.
