I'm not quite sure if this was a timing issue or who or which post this refers to. If it is 'wire' in particular my answer is - get rid of it - as it serves no purpose that the current breed of low stretch lines can't do better. Again I'm not saying to do it as I did without changing the sheaves but between Meat Hooks and Kinking... just make it go away......
