While I know nothing of your reel, I don't actually use the twist on my Paterson reels when developing 120. The trick is to keep them scrupulously clean (60C rinse after photoflo and before drying), get them bone-dry with a hot hairdryer about 2 mins before you use them and to snip about 2mm off the leading corners of the film. If you do all that, you can just push the film straight into the spiral without any twisting.
I think it's the hairdryer makes the biggest difference. Using that religiously means I never have loading issues whereas previously I would frequently be fighting with a sticky roll in the dark bag for up to 40 minutes, getting crinkles all over it.
