    Does this happen to anybody else:
    when I open a set of poly, it explodes into a jumbled mess, like a jack-in-the-box popping out?

    Is there a secret to opening it?

    If it's in a bag, hold the bag so that you are putting pressure on the bundle of strings, then use a pair of scissors to open the top of the bag with your free hand. Reach in and grab the bundle so it doesn't fly apart.

    If it's in the hard case, I usually jsut open up the case just a crack so I can get to the string without having it fly apart.
