You have to occationaly untwist them by spinning the chicken loop while every thing is layed out on the ground. Or you can fly it circles and the give the bar a spin too. As long as there are'nt too many twists it wont affect how it flys so there is no need to worry about it.
If your inside line is wrapped/twisted arround your outside line thats a different story , it can happen while packing or unpacking your bar and lines , fix it while its on the ground. Develope a habit of carefully wrapping and unwrapping your lines exactly the same way every time. Hope this helps.

When I wrap my lines at the end of a session I place each line between a finger. When I unwrap for the next session I have no twists.
