That line is seriously twisted. I bet it's a nightmare through the rod guides as well - twisting up if slack. Assuming it's been loaded the correct way (it doesn't make any difference if it's off the edge with spool of line rotating or off of the face of the line spool with the direction of line same as the rotor of the reel) and you haven't been winding in with the clutch slipping it might, just might, even be that the reel itself is causing the twists. As I said before winding in a weight under tension can cause even a 'good' reel (Daiwa TDR/TDM and even Ninja's do it) to twist. You'll know because you'll wind in your empty feeder, swing it in - don't grab it just let it hang there - and then it'll spin like mad (which can also be caused/partially caused by the shape of feeder). It's made worse by winding in very fast.ok so I've got two of these reels and put 8lb and 10lb on each. I didn't try the 8lb as it was on my son's, but just tried it and that seems to be ok.
mine on the other hand is like this if you just pull a cm or two.
Nothing to do with the line itself though. Although, unless you are as big as Goliath, that looks a very small reel (small diameter) to be loading thick line onto as I said before.
