Stop every 30 seconds to fix the line

The "no bump" technology is a selling point, but the biggest drawback to this trimmer. When working correctly, the shorter line causes the head to spin faster, which in turn causes a weighted switch to kick out and release more line. It may look good on the drawing board, but I can't trim any more than 10-20 feet before the line STICKS TO ITSELF on the inside, and is eaten up completely on the outside. So I need to stop, pop the cap off the head, manually let out some line, re-cap, and continue.
I looked up reasons for the line sticking like that, and the recommendation was to store it in a very moist place. I used a ziploc bag with water, but it didn't help.
My recommendation is to use a trimmer that has the bump mechanism. It only takes a second and is more reliable,
Cons: line doesn't release as advertised.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
