Penn Greenie

I have a smaller Penn Greenie, maybe a 704, I do not recall exactly. If it makes a difference, I can go check the reel, it is on the boat. I bought the reel in 1978 or so, and have just gotten it back form Penn who did a full refurbishment on it. I have a line twist problem constantly with this reel. I can respool etc. and after a hundred casts or so, I have huge line twist. I can get the twist out by dragging the line behind the boat, but in a short bit, it is back.I have put a Shimano on the same rod, and not a problem. Does anyone know what the problem is, and can I solve it?

Hey Quailoh, I think if the reel is smaller it might not be a 704. The 704s are 26-28oz I believe. Maybe you have a 710 or 713. Doesnt it say what it is on the nickel plate? Anyway, I have the same issue with my 710, yesterday fishing the surf in Long Branch I had to cast out far and retrieve with tension on the line to get it back on the spool straight. Would love to hear what people have to say.
