all lines will twist on a spinning reel, just the way they work.

I use big game 10# on mine, one has 30# braid.

try 15 or 20 lb. "slick" lines like P-Line TC8 or Power Pro Super Slick 8 married to a fluoro leader like Seaguar Red Label 8 or 10 lb. Cut off 10 feet of fluoro and tie the Lefty Krey knot. Can't go wrong.


Sinner. Far from perfect. Forgiven.

I use braid with a fluoro leader on my catfish rods, and Original Stren Clear Blue mono in my ultra lite rods. They all twist, so be careful when rigging to reduce to twist to a minimum. When the twist gets noticeable, I cut off all terminal tackle and let the line out behind the boat and get the twist out while idling across the lake.

The line twist comes from how the line is spooled on the reel. Search YouTube for some suggestions on what works best and you'll get better results.

Power pro for me. Best? Dunno. Good enough.

P-Line CX (not CXX) premium is a copolymer/fluoro coated line. it is smaller in diameter, stronger than most in heavier sizes and has almost zero memory in that size. the 8# is smaller diameter and stronger than most others 10-12# line. comes in different colors as well, some hi vis fluourescent.

Another thing to watch out for is putting on too much line. This will cause twists, bird nests, and other assorted grief.

I use P-line on all of my reels, but it will twist on spincast too.

also always close the bail by hand, never "reel" it closed.

I've heard this before, but can't see how it makes a difference. Can you explain?

You asked for mono and flouro. I have sworn off flouro on my spinners. Way too much memory. I prefer braid or light mono—i.e., 10# Trilene

if you use the handle it swings the roller guide to casting(trigger finger) position twisting the line as it turns the bail before it closes. does that make sense?
