Does anyone have any tips on how to keep the Jib Sheet from twisting around itself? When we sheet in tight the Jib Sheet twists around itself between the jib clew attachment blocks and the jib blocks.

Thanks!

Maybe switch to a single braid line like New England bzzz or Swiftcord?

What it sounds like is the inner braid of a double braid line is twisting inside the cover and this causes a kink.

Try untying the line and dragging it behind the boat for a while. Sometimes this will make them behave better.
