My previous box of 1000' Cat6 was fine so I got a 500' box of the same to complete my installation. I measure the cable lengths needed, pull them from the box, and re-coil them for carrying into the attic. This latest box won't coil nicely AT ALL. There are minor kinks every couple of feet and no matter which way I try to coil it, it wants to go the other direction and twist around to boot. I don't know what they changed, but this cable is 100x harder to deal with than the first box.
