I went to braid when it came out and have run thru a lot of the problems.


I went to 30 from 20 lb line, Braid has to be put on the spool very tightly (helps the line not dig into the spool when a good fish is on)


First thing to do is go throw your different baits and learn where the spool tension knob likes to be with that bait ( If not the spool over runs the bait and guess what you can get)



If you are an old guy before all the fancy knobs you learned to use your thumb to control the spool when casting. It still works.



Never throw into the wind till you have the above correct otherwise lol


Never hit your rod on a cast a one of a kind backlash is guaranteed.


I used to throw old greenies but went to the expensive lews and I do not have many problems if the spool control is set for that bait and the line wound tightly on the reel. Check your line every once in a while to see if you have a loose wrap from long throws that can build up and cause problems.


When you do clean up a back lash be careful where the line is when you pull the line out OR you can have a worse problem when trying to wind the line back on the reel. Be safe and have fun. Jim
