Huh...I never really questioned this before:
Kinda embarassing if true.
what's next? are they gonna say that licking your pump nozzle doesn't do anything?? :P

I was blamed for that by one company when my valves were popping open...
If you use the "O" method, you will impart a 360 degree twist on the lines for every wrap around the bar. (unless you rotate the bar end over end like a spool). I doubt this would do any harm, but the figure 8 will insure the lines remain straight.
I agree. definetly better t do a figure 8.
I do both the 8 and the Circle. - Doesnt seem to make a difference other than if you do the circle you want the lines to be tighter on the bar on everywrap as one loop jumping off the bar end can make a horrible mess!
I'm totaly with TD on this one. It's not a matter of tangling the lines more or what is faster to roll and unroll. It is strictly a matter of getting twists into each individual line. I would think you will only start noticing it after doing the O rolling for a while. After all the lines are long and it will take some time but it will affect your lines eventually. Figure 8 all the way for me. If you are not sure what we talk about, roll up a long electrical cord around your elbow and see the twist you create by the time you reach the end. Same thing.
But wait a minute. Here is another thought, maybe it is not that bad after all, because you unroll with the opposite way and undo your twist? Hmmmm. :)
Yeah, had the same thought about the unroll. So far, Phil has the best reason: it prevents a total clusterf*%k if a loop slips off your bar.
