Line Twist With a Baitcaster?

Recommended Posts

I keep an extra spool of cheap line around in case of an emergency (zebco $3 for 700 yds) and I have it spooled on my baitcaster right now since I don't have any money to buy more line. I usually don't have any problems with it the first time I use it however, the second time out the line always has lots of memory in it and backlashes every other cast. Has anyone else experienced it? I don't know if it's because I'm using bottom of the barrell line or if it is simply because it's mono (I have never used anything but braid on my caster)

It's not twist, it's just line memory.  All mono will do that over time, but a better quality mono will have less memory.  Other than buying new/better line, the next best thing you can do is use a line conditioner like the KVD product.  In addition, make sure you store your reels out of direct sunlight, and away from any direct heat.

Poor guy, if shipping didn't cost me $10, I would give him a spool of line.

I appreciate the generosity guys, but I'm not looking for a handout. I don't regularly use that stuff I was just in a pinch. I was just wondering since I had never used mono on my baitcaster before.

"Memory" or coiling can be confused with twist. It will go away

after fishing the line for awhile. At any rate, fresh line is probably

the best option.
