I struggle with the same problem.  Reel Magic seems to help with the line twist.

For spinning reels, lay the spool of mono on the ground and start to reel it onto the reel, if the line coming off the spool is starting to twist then stop reeling and turn the spool over.  It should start coming off the spool without any twist and then won’t twist so bad when casting.  Hope this helps

To prevent line twist on spinning or spincast reels the spool placed on the floor, only feed the line through the eye on the rod closest to the reel and the line should turn the opposite going on the reel as coming off the spool this will highly reduce line twist.

I just take a 2 1/2 ” wood screw and drill it about a 1/3rd of the way in my work bench, put the spool on the screw and run the line through the rod and start reelin the line on with the rod tip just about 6-12” from the spool. When the reel spool is full I take it outside, tie the line to a pole and walk till the line is all pulled out and reel it back in with the line tight.

here’s an easy trick , works for spinning or a bait caster ,  if ur line is twisted or kinky . cut the lure off feed line off the spool into the water as you troll forward . drag the line behind the boat , it will straighten out .tongue wink

Try searching “homemade reel spooler” on google images. You tube has some videos as well. You will get many ideas on how to make your own. Its real easy. I made one last summer similar to the wooden one about 3 lines down. Its just a couple pieces of plywood, an 8 inch bolt, some springs and washers and a nut and you got it. Works great. I just clamp it to my bench and spool em up…
