Angry Twist & Shout

How does one go about solving line twist??? I had a Sci-Angler Cold Water Intermediate last year that was FANTASTIC.. that is until an un-identified fish decided to drag it across a muscle bed. Any way I bought a new line ( same type and brand )and for some reason it gets twisted / coils around the 60 foot mark. I've stretched it a few times but it seems to come back after a few outings. Could it be my casting? More important how does one fix it?

I would take it back to the shop. Some lines are "spoiled" in the coating procedure. Had a similar problem with an SA line, took it back and got a new one, no problemo.
