So, usually I use a type of sinnet as described by ITStactical, in which it wraps up in a nice circular shape, and I can easily tug on one end to unravel.

Do you guys have any other idea's on storage/management? What about for hiking purposes? What do you do?

Generally, I carry a bundle. I always have a bracelet and lanyard, but I was thinking of a good "ready to use" situation for like 100ft or more. :D

Any ideas?

Pipa knot... Not sure if it will work with 100', good for shorter lengths
Nice! I don't know how I missed this for several months, but I like it! :cheers1:

I just ordered 2 of the TricornE Spool Tools. They look great, but after they get in I'll give a hands on review.

Just my opinion
Thank you. That's actually pretty sweet. I wasn't aware anything like that existed. :2thmup:

Gatorade bottles cleaned out with a hole in the cap. Coiled up in the bottle and tied off outside the cap. Works great.
How hard/easy is it to get the paracord inside a bottle? What if I use 100' how do I get it into the bottle?

Put a metal bead on the end or tie a quarter to it. Works like a charm, but back to the OP. I just coil it. Its fast and easy to undo :D

explain, please :confused: :confused: :confused:

I do a chain stitch and then a chain stitch with that.
then I either put it into a stuff sack with the end sticking out
or in the side pocket (good fit) of my day pack.
100 feet also fits very well in the side pocket of my EDC bag.

WHOA!! Now that's an awesome way to store paracord!! A premier way in fact. But because I couldn't find any spools specifically designed for smaller amounts of paracord. So my engineering self designed a spool out of foam board as a prototype for a wooden version to store up to 200ft of paracord. I needed them. Video coming soon!!

Well it isnt the easiest, but not hard. You can use a bead like ^ he said as well to help
I really like this idea!! It works!

I store my paracord in a box. I'm currently looking for a better way to store my paracord.

this is how i do it.i just bought some dollar store containers,then i just threw the paracord in there and poke a hole in the top of it and pulled it through the hole.you might be able to fit 200 feet of cord in there but i doubt it.

Well, I've had my Spool Tools for a while now, and I must say they are everything their websites says they are. These are more for field use than project use, but they will certainly work for projects, too. They are tough, hold the 100' of 550 cord nicely, the mini-Bic fits he slot well and is easy in and out. The cutter works great, making nice clean cuts, leaving ends that are easy to burn into small, tight finished ends. The cord has to be slightly sawed into the burning slots, but it holds it firmly and makes for easy burning to melt the end.

I'm a big fan now and will probably order a couple more. I see there is a drawing with Spool Tools as the prizes. I highly recommend entering for they really are a nice product to have, especially for field use.

Just my opinion.

Are you a sales rep? LOL I'm joking.

I made the beginners error and wound my cord in to a ball:mad:
Lesson learned.

As I have a lot of cord coming next week I have been wondering how to store it, I thought I would beg some spools from the local haberdashers, but then I saw these

Keeps the cord clean, see through boxes, stackable, punch a hole in the side and hey presto!!
