I tie on stop knots for when they are needed,
but every time i slide them up and down my line goes curly..........

Any idea how whats causing it?

the power gum is either red drennan power gum or ESP power gum
I am using sufix supreme @ 15lb if it helps narrow down.

You might be tying the knot too tight !!
Also when you slide it up and down the line make sure you wet the line first Wink

I use the rubber fox float stops and not had a problem on my braid or 15lb Daiwa Sensor mono with it. As said, wet the line 1st and do it a foot at a time - they get hot with the friction!

Hope this helps a bit

I use thin elastic bands and leave tags about an inch and a half long.....and wet before moving them.

I use latex hairbands that I nicked from the box our lass and daughter keep their girly hair stuff in Twisted Evil

They're ideal. Just lay the line across them and then 'fold' the band over and through itself then pull tight (I'll post a pic later).

As long as they're not too tight, I can slide them up and down the braid without problems. Only thing I've found is that they can snap quite easily if the line isn't lubricated enough or they are tight. But with them being so easy to put on, it's not a problem.
