    Default Bass rod line chafing

    I use mono on a spinning rod. I've been having a lot of noise when reeling in, especially crankbaits from the amount of resistance they have. I noticed that the mono was really coarse feeling. After re spooling with fresh line it has already roughed up the new line; I figured it might. I tried the q tip trick, running a q tip through the guides. No cotton was pulled off. It is a fenwick rod, not sure what material is used in the eyelets. Any ideas? Also would any of that noise be transmitted down the line into the water as the lure travels? Sometimes the reeling would slow down and feel like the reel was gummed up. But if you take the reel off of the rod it free wheels all day long! What's going on?

    ...or the spool edge coating is peeling off.

    Please Don't block the ramp or the dock. My pontoon and crew cab require a wide berth.
