/ mammut 10m prom wall rope butterfly coils
If you have somewhere with a big enough drop, you could hang it. The bottom end needs to be off the ground, then any twists in there will unravel. Halving it over a drop also works.
If not, lay it out in a straight line and have a person at each end untwist any coils, that's what I usually do with new ropes.
For what it's worth Mammut ropes generally come lap coiled.
Drag it across Grass in Straight Line.
Dont coil it. Either chain Link it, or just feed it into a bag uncoiled at end of Session.
That or pull it through a belay plate a couple of times. Usually straightens a twisty rope out.
If it's a 30m wall rope the twists should be easy enough to work out by pulling the climber's end each time you do a route.
It's possible that if the rope is longer or the routes are short you're not allowing the belayer's end to spin the twists out (it stays on the floor too long) as you pull it through. In which case dragging it halved along a floor/field will probably do the trick.
It's also possible that something you do keep putting the twists back in, your belay device, belaying technique, coiling/storage method or even just clipping both krabs at the top can sometimes introduce twists, don't ask me how, it's witchcraft so far as I can tell!
Thanks for the advice rope now sorted ,cheerrs
