It's always a good idea to let out a foot or so occasionally so that the same spot isn't always rubbing on the rod tip, especially if you happen to be jigging bucktails. I used to do this with wire as well, until I switched to the weighted keels like in the video below. I made my own from ss welding rod. The only downside is they tend to pick up weed easier.
