Line is twisting.

(Print Version)

Possible Cause: Line was spooled on improperly.
Solution: Replace line or play out line (without lure) behind boat or in river current to remove line twist. NOTE: When installing new line, make sure the line from the supply spool is feeding off in the same direction as the rotor is turning.

Possible Cause: Lure spinning on retrieve.
Solution: When trolling, make sure the line is not wrapped around your lure so it’s running true. When using in-line spinners, attach a ball bearing swivel to the line.

Possible Cause: Bail wire is misshapen.
Solution: Replace bail wire assembly. Visit the Parts section to order a replacement.
