line twist


island guy

Question

HELP!! Line twist has been a curse for me. I use a good quality mono, good open face spinning reels but no matter what I do or how I spool the line, I end up with line twist. Any ideas??

I use Berkley (XL, I think) mono backing, and a small #3 ball bearing swivel (the expensive, streamlined kind) tied to that. Below the swivel I use a leader section of Flourocarbon P- line and then my lure. That really tames the twisties for me.

The swivel is small enough so it reels right through the guides and does not hang up.

You may be applying to much pressure or resistance to the line when spooling it up. What line are ya using? How are ya spooling it on? Dont fill your spool 100% full. When filling your spool and you get a loop in the line flip the filler spool over. Also spooling at some baitshops can be a nightmare because of the highspeed the line is spooled on at. They aalso tend to overfill, go about 3/4 of a spool.

I use Spiderwire with a 4 foot 4lb Microice leader and I never have a line twist problem. Try that on one of your reels and see how you like it.

Couple of things that arent being mentioned yet. When spooling a spinning reel make sure you have the label up on the spool that way the line is going on the reel the same direction that its comming off the main spool. Check it every so many handle turns. If its twisting, turn the main spool over and do a few handle turns and check again.

Secondly, If you have a fish on and you are reeling against the drag(turning the handle while the spool is letting out line or not mooving at all) you are then also putting twists in your line.

**buying expensive line will not help in line twists. Braids will not end line twist eaither. ALL LINE TWIST THE SAME... I hat to say this but if you have having twisting problems its operator error.**

Best of luck...

Last year there was a tip on this forum about using a product called Reel Magic.It reduces line twist and makes for easier casting on summer reels.I have used it and it does help!

Another thing that seems to help with mono is to soak it overnight in a dish of water before spooling.

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
