Works ok, but placement is key I use this line counter on my musky rods, when I'm using them to troll for musky, since I don't use line counter reels on my musky rigs. This line counter is the only logical choice, because guessing how much line is out would be totally inadequate. The key to getting this to work is to place it in the right area of the rod. On casting rods, place it after the first line guide, and on spinning rods, place it after the second line guide. This keeps the line down in the grove centered over the counter wheel. You also need to adjust the tension knob correctly. It takes a little thought to set it up to work right, but it does work. And lets be honest, for what this thing costs, can you afford not to have it if your not using lline counter reels? March 7, 2008
Not Worth It!!!!! The line counter did not work right out of the box. Please read all these reviews carefully, I bought this thing in spite of the terrible reviews. I should have paid attention. The line lock is cheesy and hard to set. This is one of those products where you can feel the cheapness. The counter also was very inaccurate (I tested it from a 10 foot balcony and it only registered a foot). This was purchased for one fishing trip in particular and now I will NOT take it, a waste of money and time. May 7, 2008
DO NOT BUT IT! it really doesn´t work.. I just opened the package and at the first try stopped work September 20, 2010
Pure sickening quality The quality of these line counters are very SAD. I bought 4 from the Myrtle Beach store yesterday and only 2 of them actually work. One does not read the feet out and the other one will not tighten up on the rod (stripped threads on cheap plastic screws). I would not recommend anyone to buy these. I would recommend that you buy a reel with the line counter built in. Look for other options besides these line counters!!!!!!!!!! April 13, 2008

A: 
The device requires it to be mounted on something rigid like the end of the rod. The rod is what depresses the button under the device to turn it on.

A: 
No, you will get a lot of kinks and the motor is not equipped to handle this job. I use wire in trolling for speckled trout, it get the lure down near the bottom. When I need to take it off, I walk across the street and tie it off to a tree and press the cast lever and walk back to my garage, cut it and using gloves wind it up over a cut of wooden dowel and discard or use it for baling wire to tie my tomato cages together.

I don't know what the limits are on the strike indicaters, but I would say that if you are using a superline that it would be ok.

A: 
You could mount it on a surf pole, but I don't think that this is an ideal use. I think the counter will greatly decrease your casting distance since the line has to pass through a very tight area on the counter. I use this line counter for trolling only, and it works very well for that purpose.

A: 
I've not tried this, but it should work. The counter will be upside down on the rod, so you will have to stop spooling to check the counter. As long as the line is coming off the line spool the same direction that it is going onto the reel spool, line twist shouldn't be an issue.

A: 
no aftermarket line counter is made to work with spinning reels. They will, if you're ok with the line counter mounted on the bottm of the rod near the tip so the line can run through it correctly. But the it is not only facing the ground, but is all the way near the tip, better have good eyes. They work wonderful for conventional reels, when set up properly. It won't work right outta the box, you need to tune it for YOUR rod, reel, and line diameter
