RE:dubbing needle?

I used the wire tip of the threader to penetrate the side of the braided line and enter the core, slid it up about 2" and then pushed back out through the same side.
Placed the end of the line into the small 'v' of the threader with only 1/16' or so stubbed past and then gently drew it back through the first penetration, up through the core to the second penetration.
Cut the bitter end right at the sidewall and worked it back inside.

Worked slick on the Cortland 30#, I'm stil waiting for a spool of 50# to arrive.
