I have tried mono and floor and has too much memory. Tried 20 pound power pro braid and gets tangled around the rod end. This is on my wife's rod. Is there any other line I should try with better results? Wife is getting frustrated.

Berkley Trilene XL is by far the best mono for spinning

I have used Trilene XL for years and like it and didn't have memory problems but rarely used over 12 pound test on mine. I always let it out behind the boat after spooling to let it untwist before using if I can. Braid is the only no twist option I know of.

No issues with braid here. Using Suffix 832 and Daiwa J-braid in 6,8,10, and 65. Also using yozuri 15lb with no issues. Make sure the spool is facing the right direction and is spooled under tension.

What size reel?

Right now I have 20# power pro on her Shimano Sahara 2500.

I am about to buy her a new really and it will probably be another 2500 size, but might go a 3000 size
