Default How to spool line from a conventional to a spincast reel?

I would like to spool the line from my conventional reel to my spincast reel. How should I do it to avoid twisting the line on the spincast?

Just put the drag on the conventional relatively light, and just fill the spinning reel. To get rid of the twist, next time you're on the boat, let the line on the spinning reel out behind the boat while running with no hook or weight or anything, and just reel it back on. The line will untwist itself. Do this all the time when doing a lot of yellow tailing.

Take spool off spinning reel and attach to drill bit with tape. Engage drill and this will now be conventional to "conventional" with no twist... Then pop spool back on spinning reel.
