    Interesting. I have been using the type 1 method since I was a Boy Scout. It works well on 1/8 in cord at more than 75 ft. if you add more outside wraps. It's basically the same way one rolls yarn. A bag of assorted pieces stays wound and untangled in a stuff sack. If you hook the free end and pull the bundle it will generally feed smoothly with an occasional simple overhand knot at the other end to sort out. I think the reason you have a problem with it on your ridge line is you use too few outside wraps and may snag one the buried prussic. It may be worth moving them near the ends.

    Great video, Raul!

    One idea for you to try - on the guylines, instead of wrapping the tag end twice around a bundle loop at the very end of your process, do it the way you finish the ridgeline... except... make the tuck under the last loop slippery with the very end of the guyline sticking out an inch or two so you can just pull it when you are ready to deploy the guyline. Makes setup even quicker, especially in the cold,
