When I loan my spinning rod to my cousin, I tell him to manually close it, but he never does and I get over bearing line twists and have to cut some line off. I KEEP TELLING HIM TO DO IT MANUALLY, but he never does. Doing it manually will save you a lot of problems in the future because it reduces line twist, as mentioned above. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
