anyone get frequent line twists?

Hello fellow skydivers! I just passed my 50 jump mark this weekend, and had several line twists that I can't seem to figure out. I jumped Saturday, and had 2 line twists-1 I had to kick my way out of, and the other cleared itself. Sunday I had 2, the first I kicked out of, and on the second the crossed risers popped me in my Adam's apple and started to spin me, but I kicked out of it in time. I brought the problem to my packer's attention the first time, and they triple-checked the next pack job and all was fine. Went to another packer and it happened almost the same. So it's not a packing issuse. I'm on heading and stable when I open, so the only thing I can think of is that when I track away from the group, that I may not be allowing myself enough time to slow to a belly-fly before opening. How much time should one allow between ending a track away before opening? I think the increased speed may be throwing me into a twist on opening. Any suggestions?
