Braid hates any kind of slack. I use it for saltwater lure fishing a lot...maybe over 100hrs worth of casting and retrieving or jigging in a year. This simple trick was shown to me years ago by someone and it totally stops any tangles on or near your spool. When you have cast out, never ever engage the bail using the reel handle and close it by hand. After closing the bale arm, give the braid a little tug to pull out any slack ... promise you’ll have no more loops coming off the spool causing mayhem ?
