Marker float tangling

Recommended Posts

HI All,

 

Does anyone have any tips/techniques for stopping the marker float/lead/boom twisting so the float won't pop up?

 

I seem to twist on at least 50% of my casts!!

 

Thanks

 

Phil

Use a mono (Amnesia) shockleader if you are using braid straight through.

 

The casting drop, plus 4 turns on the reel is not enough to reduce the feeling of the braid.

 

I found that braid tangles around itself and the run ring, adding the leader stops it

Marker set-up tangles can be due to line twist. The float spins like a propeller on the retrieve causing horrendous line twist. I have suffered from this many times. Try a gardener spin doctor to remove the twist (although it soon returns!).
