I twist my wires with my linemans ad well. I usually strip them a little long, line up where the insulation ends twist with linemans and then cut it off to perfect length. Sounds like its a waste of time but I can do it very quickky. Not twisting works ok with 2 14's but anything bigger and its easier just to twist before hand
