No I meant inside the reel, there's like little strands coming off the string when i pull it out of the reel.Not really. I'm not sure what you mean. Can't imagine happening inside the reel. Assuming during the stringing process? In that case, you might be shaving a little bit of the sharp edges while pulling excess cross string or going through a tight grommet hole. To help with that, slide the cross string with your finger downward towards the throat while pulling the excess string with your hand, until it's ready to pull tension, by then, horizontal. As far as the grommet hole, just go slow. That helps keeping the string sharp while it's being strung, if that makes sense.
