This is no windup. Forget putting your hands out, no need to pull up an extra chair, and if you have a winding thingi-ma-bob then you can step away from that too. All this glorious Colinette is on cone. Cones are available in various sizes so please read the product descriptions to make sure your have the right amount. Oh, almost forgot to mention, the best part is the price, buying on cone will save you money as well as time. Happy hunting.
