Here's my question: I've been plagued with line twist when I run my coyote 0 flasher. I make sure to go no faster than 2.3 or so and I also check that I have SAMPO ballbearing swivels. I run #30 mono with a floro leader. It really only seems like it's on my riggers and not my boards. I'll run a 23" leader on a LBB and almost every trip I end up with bad twist. What am I doing wrong? I'm a newbie yes, but I know the importance of quality trilene xt and swivels. Also speed. What am I missing?

Yeah I've tried multiple swivels with marginal success. I'll keep an eye on it. Maybe try the bead chain

I would say obviously our bearing swivel is not working for some reason.

Get a new one or see if you have see a way it is being impeded from working properly.

Not sure either. You could add a bead chain swivel off of a JPlug harness and see if that helps.

We run 25 with a good swivel snap right to the cyot. We will run up to 2.5 mph. We set it 10 to 30 feet back from the ball. never had line twists yet. not sure what you are doing wrong
