Adding a line roller bearing to BG2000?

Has anyone added bearings to the line roller on the BG 2000? I'm getting twist and wind knots with both of mine and was wondering if this might help.

I've done it on other Daiwa reels and it makes a huge difference. You need a kit with two washers to make it work.

You should feather the line toward the end of the cast and always close the bail by hand to prevent twist and tangles.
This is the way.
