This year I continuously an experiencing drum line wrap when I deploy my Jib. I kept tension on the line and check the feed alignment. The metal case turns with the unit. I can prevent it by tie wrapping it so it don’t turn but I would like to know what the correct and permanent fix is. Also, can anyone tell me the manufacturer of the unit?
I have two photos and and a five second video of the issue attached...
Thanks

I have that same roller and have had that same issue. Here is the problem. There is supposed to be a U-shaped tang on the bottom of the drum through which the toggle passes and then connects to the bow eye. The tang is missing. The tang keeps the drum from rolling. I'll try and find a pic and post it.
