This question already has an answer here:
While backpacking, I usually carry 50 feet of spectra cord (2mm) to be used as part of my bear bagging system. More often than I would like, I end up having to untangle the line before being able to use it.
Although my untangling skills are ever increasing, how can I prevent the tangling of the cord in the first place? A cord winder comes to mind. However, I'm also curious to find out about tips and tricks on how to properly store cordage when a winder may not readily be available.
