Line Twist in Braided line

Recommended Posts

Does line twist occur in braided line ? I am using it on a Dropshot rig with a Fluorocarbon leader. Is line twist something I need to be concerned about with the braid? Or should I just fish as usual?

Yes line twist does occur just the same as it does with mono or floro. But since braid has no perceived memory it is not noticable or very much so.  Spoons, inline spinners soft plastics still twist on the line, b ut its no big deal.

airborne,

I switched to braid because I had some much line twist in flouro when I was tossing light jig heads and weightless worms. Since I switched to braid, the line twist issue is gone since there is no memory. The only thing I get with braid every so often is a dreaded wind knot. I am pretty much converting to braid on all my setups that are non-crankbait.
