Clip up correctly
How do I use a line clip on a reel? bomb that is just heavy enough to reach the distance that you want to fish at, so that your end tackle is slowing down as it hits the clip. If you get the balance right, much less strain is placed on your main line or braid.
Another good tip is to always position your line clip so that it’s on top of your spool. This way, if a big fish hits the clip and you want to release your line, to backwind or bring the reel’s clutch into play, you can usually free it with a fingernail.
I prefer round metal line clips to plastic triangular ones. It’s generally easier to release the main line from these, and they are far less likely to snap off with constant punishment.
