Hey H2ORidr -
Great post BTW, I'd love to come by and see how you coil a rope without twisting. I always coil in a figure-8 pattern, because it also prevents longitudinal twists; I'd like to see how to do it your way.

But, I don't understand your comment above. Mechanically winding onto a spool (where the spool turns and pulls in the rope, like a winch) shouldn't twist the rope at all. Or am I mistaken?
