Trimline jamming

I have been trying to replace my trimline in my Ryobi trimmer and it seems to jam everytime. I have tried wrapping clockwise and counterclockwise, wrapped it tight, wrapped it loose and it starts out like a charm for a minute, but then won't advance.When I take the head off it looks like the trim is jammed onto itself. It is very annoying and I don't kow what I'm doing wrong. Can anyone help?

Most times problems like this are the fault of the trimmer line.
You might try a better brand. I also wind it on with keeping
my finger to keep the line seperate as I wind it on.
