might be a bit obvious, but always feed the line back into your cube, putting it on the ground just ends up in a mess twigs and **** getting it all bunched up! took me a while to get in the habit of doing it though!

 

i have a falteimer and a stein ( pure shite! ) cube,

i think about 6 or so bags of various sizes

have some cheap elderid line maybe, cant remember had it for a bit!

 

for double bagging, i always attach an extra bag or 2 on just to make sure it will drop back down, can be awful frustrating sometimes!

 

i love the throwline, guilty of using it sometimes even on small trees where i could easily run up and have my anchor in by the time it would take me to open the throwcube!!
