Clearing lines and material inside canopy while packing

Hey skydivers,

i got a question which might sound a little stupid, but because so many people i met had different opinions, i'm still interested in this thing. The question is whether sorting the material and lines inside the canopy during packing has a great influence on the opening? During my whole student period, i wasn't even told the option to sort the material. I just got to know it later because other skydivers told me about it. So what is your experience? Does it matter? More on-heading openings? Less malfunctions (lineover)? Softer openings? Personally i currently jump a 150 and normally don't sort the material inside, got wonderful openings without doing it. I really don't think you will have worse openings, just so that nobody complains that you don't have all the options ;-)

Cheers for all your answers and forever blue skies :-)
