I have always folded the first 3/4 inch of the leader back and forth like a
concertina and then put it in the take up spool. This allows the leader to
seat properly in the spool. Never had a problem with this. I don't worry
about the sprockets as the folded leader doesn't slip out of the take up
spool. Makes life difficult if you want to use a film leader extractor
