I do what gaz fareham does. When you do each turn of filament on to the hook let the long length of line in your hand go . Keep your finger on the knot but let the line hang free a couple of secs . This lets it spin any twist out before making your next whip around the hook .

Hope it makes sense

When you whip around the shank, pinch the line against the hook in between turns and let go of the line before turning again. This will let the twist out

If that doesn’t make sense I apologise

Wether you’re using a knot less or whipping knot you need to practice using the curve set by the spool to your advantage.
Sometimes an extra or fewer whip around the shank when tying will look wrong until tightened down. Hard to explain but pretty easy to learn your own sweet spot with practice

Ah right. Are you steaming them around something after you make them? To get the curve in them?

Maybe my post isn’t clear. I mean on the chod itself. Not the main line….

Are you leaving the swivels on the leads? And what main line is it?

A chad wont be causing twist in the mainline

Started using chod rigs recently.

Having issues with twist on the line, whether it be the Korda stuff or avid stiff rig filament.

Any little tips or tricks?

Apologies if it’s been covered before…
