Feeding filament from a spool

I don't have my printer yet but I'm wondering if pulling filament off a full spool is an issue?  Does the drag of the filament inhibit movement of the printhead?  I was wanting to hang my spools above the printer, for example on a rod where they can spin to unwind.  Thanks.

@metaka726, the printer ships with a spool stand. The slight resistance is no issue, unless you plan on printing with flexible filaments, those might stretch affecting diameter / extrusion.

Jason, does the rotation of the spool directly coupled to the upright frame induce any vibration?
