A 25 year old hack but worth a try, use the smother none hook side of Velcro and put some around the entire bottom edge of the spool, nearest the reel body, Had to do this with Shamans decades ago as the line guide was pretty poor, happens very occasionally with my Linear Xs.

Never had an issue with Emblems or Tournies.

However Iíd twist is minimal and you manage the line it happens very rarely.

If your rods don't have line clips on you can add some poultry spiral leg bands in the right size. Perfect for holding line, i actual prefer them as I can position them close to the alarm and have a nice drop to the indicator.

I'm another one for keep the line tight at all times.
Even with running leads and slack lines, keep the line tight at the reel, hence either a Delkim line clip or the line clip on the rod, depending on which of my rods I use.

Youíre a wiser man than me. Might try and figure out a solution like you mentioned with the butt ring if I decide not to sell them, sounds like a good solution

I still carry a packet of Elastic Bands as well, as many of my Reels don't have Line Clips on the Spools either And they double up as improvised Line clips on the Rods to

No wonder, if your reels don't have line guards then you have to improvise - when I used to very rarely slackline I just used to ram one of those ear defender foam things in the Butt ring to make sure the line was 100% tight to the Reel side.

I'm sure some company was actually selling pre-made ones to fit 40 or 50mm butt rings for this purpose "Tackle tart .com " I think?

But that was before Rod manufacturers started fitting Line clips to Rods as standard just in front of the handle for this purpose, so you could keep the line tight on the Reel side even when slacklining.

Contacted a seller on eBay who sold his quickly after purchase with the same gripes. Keeping line slack is the only way I fish marginal spots. Iíd rather buy a reel that I know this wonít happen on then one where I have to avoid the problem with a work around.

I understand that this happens to most reels but this has happened so many times on these new reels Iíve lost count and Iíve only had them 2 weeks.

Just make sure you never ever allow the line to be slack at the reel and it will never ever happen.

I use vintage Reels sometimes, Mitchell, Edgar Sealy, Abu, Youngs - none have any form of line guards on them, all would allow the line to go behind the Spools in an instant if I allowed them too, but it never ever happens - just keep that line tight always no matter what you are doing

I bought 3 Sonik Tournos 6000's to try and I was that impressed with them, I bought another 2 of them. And I then bought 3 Sonik Tournos 8000's as well. I have never had line going behind the spool on any of them and find them far better than the Shimano Baitrunners which I have used since the late 90's and the Sonik reels have to be the best reels I have used since Mitchell 300's and 410's in the '60's. But, being a "Poor" person and never seen the point of paying for expensive tackle, no doubt there would be better reels than the Sonik's on the market, but being better, does not mean line will still go behind the spool.

The line I use is Asso Quick sinking.

But, I have a Shimano Aerlex for spodding and a Mitchell Avocet for my marker rod and line is always going behind the spool on both of them.

Perhaps a lot of the problem of line going behind the spool, is the reel design on how long its leg is and how far forward or back the spool is, and how you hold the reel, and how long or short your fingers are and how dextrous they are etc along with a combination of springy line or floppy line and not keeping it tight etc. Perhaps some reels, just do not match a persons hands and techniques etc.

Reels are spooled with cm90 so I highly doubt itís the line. Iím looking at flogging them and replacing with either emcast 25a or okuma 6000 inc.
