Maybe something with a parallel core

looking for input.
A picture might help. There is likely a block that is imparting a twist.
Have you tried pulling the line out and re-reeving? Sometimes ropes will develop a twist during the break in period that will not recur if relieved once.
Yes, there are other lines, but XLS should work
. I've used it in 4:1 travelers on several boats.
