    Hey everyone,

    I was on youtube today and came across this Tactical Rope Dispenser that looks as if it could be pretty useful. Just a heads up I have zero connection to this company and am not trying to sell their product at all. Just thought some of you might find it useful.

    I might get one eventually because I hate having to organize my paracord after every outing. It is made by Atwood Rope:

    Might be good for some folks, but that's just not how I use cord.

    Then when you run empty you can curse your self as you reload the thing. I noticed that the video didn't show how to restock the cord. Over all it's a neat little device but not for me. Thanks for sharing though!

    I use the fastrope (figure eight) method for carrying and dispensing cord for camping. But I can see where this might come in handy for lots of quick, short lenghts. Maybe more work related

    I've never used that device, but I have a Paracord Donut and a knife, already.

    For my work truck where I often need various lengths of cordage quickly, I just take a 20 ounce plastic bottle, stuff it with cordage, make the appropriate sized hole in the lid and secure the cordage by tying around the bottle neck. Pull out what I need and cut it. I have used this system for years and it has worked fine. When the bottle is empty it only takes a little while to stuff it with more cordage. It doesn't have a handy belt attachment or cutting device attached but it works well enough for me.

    That is pretty cool. Atwood makes some fantastic cord. I wish it wasn't bigger than a Stanley Fat Max measuring tape.

    That looks like it might be handy in the shop if you use a lot of short pieces of paracord. I wouldn't want the added weight on the trail. A hank of cord is pretty light and fits in a pocket.

    I use a 5 gallon pail and 600' of small line for tree work and antenna raising, a 12oz shot bag and sherrel tree launcher will put it over any tree. I feed it back into the bucket and pat it down as i go. Can put a dz wire antennas in 3 hours or less. Comes out fast with no tangles. Good luck.
