If you're like me, you will come to the following conclusions: (1) For dependable strength, compactness, light weight, and low cost, choose bank line. (2) For color (e.g., for high visibility guy lines, bracelets) and the ability to make and undo knots, choose GENUINE 550 paracord.
1. The braided Catahoula line (#36) cannot be untwisted, even with effort. This is a function of braid over twine, so it may not be fair to compare as it is a bit of apples and oranges. The twined (not braided) Catahoula #18 can be untwisted, but with a little more effort than the #15 SGT Knots and #42 SGT Knots. However, the thicker #42 SGT Knots can be re-twisted with no problem, but the smaller lines SGT #15 and Catahoula #18 cannot easily be re-twisted.
2. The Catahoula line is stiffer and heavier and stands out rather than the floppier SGT Knots line.
Bottom line is that both companies make great tarred twine. Get braided whenever possible to reduce unintended untwisting. The pictures show the braided Catahoula #36 on the bottom and SGT #42 on the top. In the second picture, I have purposely untwisted the ends but could only untwist the SGT #42 on top. But I then re-twisted it and it stayed together in the last picture, so it all may be of little consequence. All 4 have similar mild tarry odor. None of them soil your hands. Sorry about the long review.
This is synthetic cordage so the ends melt easily with a lighter , to keep them from fraying once you cut a piece off.
When you take the spool out of the plastic wrap , the cord has a very slight smell of tar , but you've got to hold it close to your nose to notice it.
The longer the spool is out of the plastic wrap the more the smell starts to go away. After a month the cord will have no smell at all.
Don't let your worries about its smell deter you from buying this because it is the best small cordage I've ever purchased !
I plan on buying several more rolls...

I was also pleasantly surprised at how much cord was on the spool!
My only complaint is that it does leave some greenish, sticky residue on things it rubs up against. However, this is to be expected from tarred line and isn't a real problem.
