Default 30 lb Power Pro braid problems

I've used 50 & 65 lb Power Pro braid on my froggin reel for years and love it. I switched from mono to fluoro on most of my other bass reels several years ago and like the feel and low stretch of fluoro ... but ... if ya don't tie a perfect knot you're gonna break off and it's gettin' hard for my old eyes to see to tie perfect knots every time, plus a lot of times the fluoro is hard to see to watch my line. So I decided to try 30 lb Power Pro instead of fluoro on two reels recently (jig and T rig). I've only been out twice but really struggled with it. The line is digging into itself on the spool. I'm pretty sure I've read on the forums that a lot of folks like 30 lb braid on baitcast reels, any tips for me? Is this just the nature of lighter braid? Will the line settle in better after I use it a while? If it doesn't get any better than what I've had so far I'm going back to fluoro! Thanks in advance for your experienced advice.
