  1. Firstly my apologies to admin for originally posting in perhaps the wrong section of this forum. My story is that i started using a Battle 2 3000 with spiderwire on my 7' Ugly Stik Elite last week. Filled spool to approx 80% capacity. Terribly bothered with wind knots. Probably lost approx 30 metres line already. Line lay on spool looked fine so did not bother with either of spare washers in box. Seems to be spilling line over lip of spool as i retrieve which results in a right 'birds nest' on next cast. I do not close bail arm manually as I prefer to do this by hitting my distance and closing bail by turning handle. Would you advise trying a different brand of braid or perhaps changing or adding one or both of the spare washers? I have used quite a few brands of reel in my time and never had this issue! I love the smooth action of my Penn Battle 2 but I am really at my wits end! Thanks in advance. Bryan.
