Default Sticky Braid

Bear with me while I try to describe my issue...I am using a Torsa 16N for jigging. In the past I have used a Jerry Brown Solid 40# Braid and now using a Tuf-Line Indicator Hollow Core 40#. While free spooling, the spool moves faster than the line coming off the reel, thus the line almost starts a mini backlash...it "sticks" and can't keep up with the spool.

I can't say that the line is burying in itself...it just is a little sticky....

Are there braids out there that free spool better than others? Though I prefer an indicator/decade type metered line, I'd rather have better free spool if I had to choose.

Thanks,

Are you saying that the braid is spinning on the spool itself. If so, did you use mono backing so the braid has something to grab onto? Braid on metal will usually spin.

Not at al... As I start to free spool I can watch the line coming off the top of the spool, as it should...I can watch as the spot that the line is coming off the spool move from the top towards the front of the spool to almost coming off the bottom of the spool, maybe it's just that the spool is so smooth and fast that the line can't keep up.

Probably because hollow line flattens as it is packed on the spool. I bet if you switch back to solid you won't have that issue. I can't see any advantage to using hollow that small anyway - it has to be very difficult to splice.

Try a braided fishing line conditiioner sprayed onto the spooled line. MIne used to do this where it would free spool so fast it got to the point where it was reverse reeling on my 30w.

Luna Sea...It also happened with the solid, probably worse. I bought the hollow not for the splicing but I thought it would lay better.

Deep: Thanks I'll try that, I didn't know there was such a thing and I thought I knew everything cause I
I'm on THT!

Take everything off the line except the line itself. Run it out behind a moving boat and wind back on with good tension on it. That will solve the line from biting into itself and not letting it free spool properly.
