I'm having a problem with my line unravelling when i flick the bail arm over ready for casting. The line seems torque but this is happening quite often and i don't know how to stop it.:wallbash:

Has anyone got any ideas as to why this is?

Just a guess, but it sounds like the line was not taken off the spool correctly when you were spooling up.

The line has to come off the spool it was supplied on in the correct direction.

or you could have overfilled the spool.

Sound like the spool has to much line on it, so it just runs off, just take a little bit off and see if it helps.:victory:

i had this problem, which i eased by:

1 unloading some line

2 making sure i held the line as far back of the spool with my finger as i could.

Agree with all the above comments and will add a question.
Is the line new ? some lines are very very springy .

It could be a combination of all of the above then.
You could try
1 removing 10 mtrs or so of the main line to lower the line level.
2 a different line
3 removing the line and respooling it again.
4 Casting a lead attached to a good ballbearing swivel out a few times an winding it back in with the line held between your fingers .This will somtimes untwist the line and pack the line on your spool a bit tighter

I would try the last one first its quick and easy

all of the above..............
plus.......tension on the line is very important.
18/20 lb monos used on some FS tend to coil off when new plus a heavy shock adds to it.
I keep tension on the spool by taking the line under my forefinger
against the rod blank and only then do I release the bale arm.
well in my case I have always used a breakaway cannon .........

itsa brilliant idea,just tape it to your rod blank and slide the line around the capstan press the trigger to hold it in place now release your bale arm and "launch"............just release the trigger and away you go.
Try one to keep tension on your cast.
