    What am I doing wrong? My line twist a lot every time I run them on the down rigger. I run swivels, and blacks rc99 releases. When I run the old clip release its not an issue. The line seems to twist from the clip back. I end up taking about 50' of line off every trip.

    Are you running a good quality ball bearing swivel? I have run the Black releases for a few years now, no isues I also run a Sampo Ball Bearing swivel.

    I will pick up some of those today. I am running the same swivels on the clips, but no line twist issues on those. I don't run the flashers with the clips though. The drag from the flashers might be too much on the cheap swivels. Thanks for the reply.

    Thanks for the tip. No line twist the last two days! I will never buy cheap swivels again!
