Line is twisting.

(Print Version)

Line is twisting.

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.
