This is a great thread and contains an incredible amount of info. Thanks to all who have contributed. I purchased some uschi rigging thread (elastic) and after measuring and cutting the first piece off the "bobbin" it curled up on itself making it difficult to lay out and measure without putting tension on it-hope that makes sense. Is it something I did/didn't do or is this just how the material reacts?
v/r,

One of many reasons why I prefer the method with eyelets and monofilament line. No need to measure the sections exactly. Just cut it with abundant excess and then - trim.
Sorry, I cannot help you except for saying - give eyelets a try and I am sure you will never return to the method you refer to. ;)

Fishing line and eyelets are my normal method...I thought I would try this and see what happened. Now I know  :)

Good advice on the Uschi rigging.
If you cut it under pressure it will curl up.

Yep, that's what I did. It is possible to unreel some and get to some good stuff or have I ruined the roll?

I don't think the roll is wrecked . But let it fall off the bobbin rather than pull it maybe will help.
It was problematic for me as well until the materials qualities were discovered, which only happens through usage.
I also racked mine , that is to say I set up an axle through the bobbin.

I rigged my Eduard 1/48 SE.5a using eyelets and Uschi elastic thread looped through Polyimide tubing at each end. 
The thread was cut with plenty of slack then tightened and trimmed when installing.
