Did you pretension? kind of, just had two guys pulling to spool it not a vehicle
Do a perfect spool? hell NO
Do you like it? so far so good, I really like knowing that its safer to pull with. Also its so light and easy to handle, no more metal slivers
Did it look like you abused it after the first pull? I have three pulls on it and it still looks new. I have heard that the color can fade quick but its holding up so far. I use a cover though
Hope this helps
