I just bought a chalk reel and the very first marks were hard to see. What happened?

You need to prepare your new chalk reel. Do so by pulling out the line several feet, and rewinding it. Repeat this step a few times. It will help the line absorb the chalk and produce darker, sharper strikes from the start.
