A question for oilfield drilling professionals.?

With a 38 ton TDS strung up on ten lines. Is this enough weight to do away with the fast line guide (spooler)?

No even though you really have enough weight to string the line on the spool when you have weight on it when you go for another stand you will throw a kink in the drill line when you go for another stand because the block still has the same weight empty. I f the hydromatic is engaged it will travel farther in the coast mode if you are on a hydralic rig then it doesnt matter . the rig onle goes so fast & it never reaches the speed to cross the drillline. that has been my experience of 27 years .
