I know this is probably a noob question.  But what is the best way to put line on a reel without getting too much twist.

I do not believe in the method shown in that video.

I let the line come off the line spool as toilet paper comes off the toilet roll/and from the top or bottom makes no difference. You do need to put some decent tension on the line or spool so it gets wound on tightly. not crazy tight, but firmly on the spool.  I have no issues with twists. I use spinning reels only.  

Just pulling line off the line spool as shown in the vid (like line flows off a spinning reel when cast) I believe can cause problems with twists. I understand that they are trying to get the spools to counteract each other but don't believe this method is effective or possible.

I haven't looked at the video yet because I'm at work and youtube and most other video is blocked.

Last time I tried to put line on a spinning reel, i just layed the spool flat on the ground beneath my rod tip and reeled it in until it had enough line, and it was SUPER twisted

Ok, I looked at the video on my phone.  That seems like it would produce the same result as the way I tried last time (as described in my previous post).

if you dont get the line off of the spool goin the right direction , it will cause line twist
