  1. does anyone have problems with strens super braid or PP bird nesting? I'm using 8 lb and seems when it gets wet its bird nests easy using a spinning reel any suggests what to do to correct this problem?

    Try using a swivel. Or after you first put it on if youre in a boat let all the line out and reel it back on and it should go back on with not twist. I try and do this a couple times a month.

    Me neither, but like PigSticker said... use a good swivel to keep it from twisting.

    Make sure your line roller actually moves. It may have some dirt in it that keeps it from rolling and that is most likely what is causing your problem.

    I use spiderwire and it tangles in a heartbeat, seems to stick to everything, too. Only thing I don't really like about it
