Ok.....I remember this kinda being covered once, but I can't find it.

Here's my issue.

I get some SEVERE kinking/curling on my flipping setup after about a day's use....maybe 200 flips and 20 or so catches. When I set the hook, I get this plink plink plink pliiiinnnkkkkk....kinda sound. When I get this sound, it's time to cut off about 10-12 YARDS of line. It goes away for a short time....then it's back.


I am having the same issue, despite trying 3 different rods. I have tried a H2O 7'3" Ethos HD(Fuji micro guides ), a 7"3" Falcon Cara ST (Fuji micro guides), and a Diawa Steez 7'2" with TiSic "macro" guides. The reels have been a Steez 103HL 7.9/1 and a Lews Team Lews 7.5/1. Line is always fluorocarbon 20lb. Sometimes InvisX and sometimes Red Label.

Is this something with the hookset? Am I abusing the line? I know it isn't the rod or reel. And it doesn't happen in my other 30 some odd combos. Only the ones I use for Biffle Bugs.

When flipping, I REALLY hookset fast and hard. Am I burning the line?

What are y'alls thoughts?

Biffle bugs causing line twist? Never use them so this is an honest question.

Seaguar InvizX has a lot of memory. I had the same issue with the InvizX. Try sunline shooter Power special.

Find a place to hook you hook onto at the front of the boat (Trolling motor bracket?). Go to the back of the boat and stretch your line tight. If you can rig up a swivel to hook to this will also help with line twist. Do this every hour or so and I bet it will help.

Maybe a wider spool reel like the Lews BB1 Pro would help also.

It's an easy lake. What can I say.


To add..... this isn't a line memory problem. I can have the same issue with one day old line. Line conditioner doesn't help. It isn't twisted, so a swivel isn't gonna help. The line is kinked and curled. With no pattern to it. Maybe a jagged kink and a few inches down a curl and an "s" and a very tight curl. It's weird.

Maybe it's from dragging over rocks and logs. Kinda how you curl ribbon for a gift wrap. It's why I think the line is burning. Going from slack line to full stretch. It makes a pop like a whip sometimes.

Check your guides, you may have cracked or chipped ceramic in one of them.

Only input I have, and could be nowhere near right cuz I've never used those reels. But when I used to run chronarch 50mgs I had the same issue. I could put new flouro on and within a short time it was coily and kinked bad. I dunno though. Not really a common denominator here since your using 2 different reels and 2 different rods. Only terminal tackle like line and bait.
