The above video has a couple of good examples of spinning reel use.
Take a look at 16:25 for a demo on how not to use a spinning reel. Reeling against drag induces major line twist.
Take a look at 29:00 for a demo on how it should be done.
HAHA!!! I Lol'd at 16:25 for sure and that guy is a pro...
I question everything this guy endorses (Brandon Lester)
Reeling while the drag is engaged is something I thought most people learned not to do during their early spincast days..yeesh

GOOD YEAR 71 wrote:Untwist the line. When your day is done, clip rig and open spool behind the boat. Let out at fast idle, drag a couple hundred feet, stop boat, reel back in. Takes a minute but line lasts much longer and sets perfect every time. It's worth the effort.
It's the only way to deal with it as far as I know.
Yep the rare times I use one, this is exactly what i do.
