    allright lads,,just joined the forum,,i have just started using an alvey sidecast reel and am having a lot of trouble with line twist,,i have a swivel on the line at the start of the rig which seems to be working but i am still getting a load of twist,,would it be worth putting another swivel back to back with the other one,,cheers Parrot..
