This thing seems simple, and smart. One of those, "why didn't I think of that?"

You are a hard core gadget junkie who already has a closet full of stuff he'll likely never use ! The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem ! :)

Can anyone explain why there are so many notches for holding the free end?

because they are made from scrap pieces that have various notches and angles cut out of them? Neat idea but spools have been around forever. any flat piece of whatever will work. chunk of an old ice scraper for example will work just fine. not really trying to knock the thing, just one of those solutions looking for a problem IMHO

That's to carry your emergency fishing line so you can catch minnows when you're lost in the bush. :D

I'm not seeing that in a bush type situation you'll be worried about sealing the cut ends of paracord, the lighter holder doesn't really add anything for me.

That said, I still might get one and add a hundred feet of reflective paracord just for the trunk of the car.

I'd like the idea more if it could efficiently get the most paracord into a M4 mag pouch, but it looks like the current one would leave a lot of un-used space in a mag pouch.

Extra source of fire, extra source of a cutting tool as well.
I'll probably end up getting one or two for home & backpack(which is usually in the truck)

It's covered in the video. They're for the different sizes of paracord.

For me it looks too bulky especially if you already carry a pocket knife and lighter. For me, I pre-cut my cord to reuseable lengths to avoid a scrap pile of unuseable bits.

Where this would rock I think is for those who make a lot of bracelets in a short amount of time, like at a gun show on the spot.

If you have the money to spend, and are ok with the bulk, then go for it.
