I have a new SWF full size single head that I've had a few months now. What is the secret to get this thing to sew a hat? It is pretty much flawless on flats, but I get pull outs on at least 30% of the starting stitches on caps.

I have played with picker angle adjustment, speed, inching stitches, all the settings I've seen mentioned elsewhere. I had an independent tech spend a couple hours with it and his conclusion was mostly "nature of the beast". I had an SWF tech come out who put a new rotary hook on, no change. I've probably done 250 to 300 hats and had maybe 5 that sewed without needing rethreaded at some point.

What am I missing?

Thanks!

I have size 80 needles in a few colors and it doesn't seem to make a difference. but yet, it getting pulled from the eye of the needle before it ties off.
