Braids and backlash concern

So my set-up protects me against the majority of backlashes, and because of that, I have been very bold on some of my casts. That boldness (stupidness) got me the biggest backlash I have ever had using 40lb braid. It took me 5 minutes to pick it out and I have to tug pretty hard in some sections and the line dug deep in the reel. I did get it all out, but on my next cast a tiny little hang up with the lure caused the line to break (with almost no force).

Now I am concerned ... is that an occurance that is not surprising with a backlash? I don't want to think I should have to respool after one. Or could it just be a fluke and I should worry "knot" :)

I'd buy an extra spool or two for your Scorpion and keep it loaded. Does it have a quick change spool?
No

no quick change spool ... have to unscrew the side plate. Oh well, can't have everything!

Art- try spraying "Reel Magic" on the braided line as it helps to avoid backlashes and maintains color of line more.
