Yes when I watched the Andy May video, he filled it to the lip and he said that you should feel a smooth feel over from the line to the lip.With regards to preventing tangles the best piece of advice I can give is to feather the line with your finger just before the the rig hits the water. Or use your line clip. This will also ensure that you are casting the same distance every time and your fishing in the same spot every cast which IMO is essential when feeder fishing.
Also avoid over filling the spool with line as if you have too much line on the spool this can cause tangles.
