Hey Seabass, glad to hear your getting ready to start chasing fish on the open water. My experience with fireline is mostly with craink baits on spinning reels. It does not seem to have much memory and I have never really had any twisting problems with it in a lot of outings. Like you, I have been pretty frustrated with mono and tried lots of different models in stren and berkely. With mono the thing I have found to work the best is not to fill my spool very full, I lose casting distance due to this, but for some reason it seems to cut down on twists when rigging. Let me know if you want to get out and do a little fishing.

Is it just me, or does it seem like problems with line twist while spooling have gotten bigger in the last 5-10 years? It's to the point that I'm going to use all fireline this year to alleviate headaches and profuse swearing...

I am sure you pros all know this but will say it anyway.
It is very important to fill a spinning reel with the filler
spool face down so the line comes off the spool the same
way it goes on the reel spool. Like someone else said,
test for twist after several turns. If there is some twist,
flip the supply spool to the other and mark it for the future.
Good luck,
Oldvike

Seabass yes we talked, at the landing that night. That was some good crappie fishing! I wish I could have a few more trips like that last winter.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
