Braid tangling and knotting

Post  plumb68 on Sun Oct 02, 2011 8:13 pm

I just bought a lure rod so got some braid which I put on a quite old Mitchell carp real, every now and again when I cast it was tangling and sometimes would have a small knot in it, is this common or maybe the real at fault as the line lay doesn't seem very good

The most common cause for this is having a lure that is to light for the weight of braid, Or useing spinner without an inline anti tangle blade, Another thing that can cause it but not very often is over spooling the reel, Hope this helps Very Happy

the lures are about 18ounce I think, and the braid is 50lb, the rod says casting weights of 20 to 60grams

Your trying to throw about 4 gms on a rod that will have an optimum casting weight of 40 gms

And on 50lb braid

Tangletastic im afraid

scratch Summat not rate there scratch

Plumb says his lure weighs 18 ounce and Noodle says that converts to 4 gram.

Now, when I went to school, 16oz was 1lb so 18oz = 1lb 2oz or 510g.

I doubt very much that a rod with a range of 20-60g would be alive after trying to chuck 510g. geek

And the braid would probably die soon after too Razz

And im betting he meant 1/8 of an ounce
18 ounce lures tend to be sea orientated like pirks, birds and the hydro head things or whatever they are called

Mind yousome muskie innovations stuff is up there in those weights.

You're probably correct there Noodle.

I bet you'd have arms like Popeye if you were chucking lures of that size affraid

Was thinking of buying a multiplier, would it work better, do you think this one would be any good LINK
I know its cheap but don't want to spend to much in case I don't get into it,

Yes mate a multiplier will help. Using braid on a fixed spool with crap line lay is probably not helping. A nice even lay multi with help no end.
