    It's cause you are un-spooling too fast, I would guess that you have the hose coming from beneath the reel, I have heard feeding it from the top would help stop it happening.

    Option B is get something like Water Works HD reel.

    When you pull the hose there is no tension onto the reel. So what you wanna do is have the hose coming over the top and not at the bottom.
