But perhaps that's more a technique issue, than a problem with the braid.
The other thing is that it's more "noisy" when under load - you can hear the strands of the braid running through the rod, more so than any other braid I've used.
can you get a pic , this sounds like the spool is over full .
I'll try to get a pic soon, but it could be a combination of both user error and over full (although I didn't think the spool was too full - perhaps it is)
I mainly use this reel for lure fishing so sometimes the retrieve might be a bit slack to start with and that could throw a loop before the slack gets taken up and the line then goes on tighter. I often am not looking at the reel before I cast - just trying to get it back out in the water again.
Thanks for the suggestions. As I say, I'll get a pic when I can
