I used this product to spool up a 2000 Shimano reel and it worked a treat, the line was at an acceptable strength after the spooling, and the line was firm and strong on the reel. However I also used this to spool my size 7000 Penn Reel and it was nowhere near as firm as it needs to be. My advice with this product would be to ensure that the line is going on tight and that you regularly check. This product is great in regard to it's price tag as well as the durability and reliability of this product, and it is a practical item that can be transported on the go. Very happy with my purchase, highly recommend for smaller reels perhaps under size 4000 Shimano and size 5000 Penn.
I received the item promptly and when it arrived I was very pleased with my purchase, it was very well made and the description on how to use the reel spooler was descriptive, I found no problem in using the spooler, I am very pleased with my purchase as it eliminates line twist. Thank you, Dennis.
So... You just got your reel... You just got your braid... What do you do next? Scroll through Youtube tutorials on how to hold the spool with a pen or a screwdriver between your feet, your knees or they'll ask you to get into some other yoga pose. I'm just kidding. Hahaa. But seriously, this line spooler is the best accessory I have ever bought for my reels. I have respooled all of my fishing reels because I have this tool and it wraps line so perfectly. This line spooler will help you immensely, especially if you're new to fishing! What are you waiting for start spooling!
First spooler I've ever used and I wonder why I've never considered using one before gone are the days of relying on the shops to spool my reels.
I've always relied on the shops to spool my reels. Hence I was limited to what lines i could purchase and how often I could respool my reels.
Worst was that when I received this spoiler, I realised that the shops were not doing a decent job with spooling my reels. I decided to replace the line on an existing reel with the help of my new spooler. I found that the shop had not backed my reel with mono which meant that my braid was not fully maximised. Furthermore there was a masking tape backing at the end of the line which was the reason why my casts towards the end of were not smooth.
With my new spooler, not only can I spool my own reel anytime I want. And I can make sure I oven knot it properly without having to rely on the shops. Plus I can ensure there's enough mono to back up the spool.
The spooler was so easy to use, even for a first timer like me. My spool was nice and taut. Had an amazing day out casting again and again with no issues. Goodbye to the tackle shops. No more being forced to buy the limited lines you offer.
