Bass Pro Shops XPS Aluminum Line Winder for Baitcast Reels
Won't work as Intended
The unit as a whole is fairly well made, all except the suction cup. The rubber suction cup is so rough and poorly formed that it won't stick to anything. I even tryed it on a glass table top and it wouldn't even hold on that. The line spool will work if you have someone to hold it. It would be a great product if it were not for the suction cup that won't stick to anything.

Suction cup stinks!
I thought this would really be handy. But put a spool of line on and stick it down , before you can make two turns of the reel handle it falls over! But it works great if you put it on the corner of a table and put two "C" clamps on the suction cup from each side of the corner.
I even tried sticking it to my wifes washer and it just falls over.

Waste of money
Complete waste of money. Suction cup doesn't work at all. You need to secure it with vise grips or equivalent. Very cheap hardware. Spring very flimsy and end pieces do not hold well when screwed down. Bass Pro Shops could definitely come out with something way better. Anyone listening at Bass Pro? I sure hope so. Would not recommend at all.

Very Poor quality
I am sorry I spent the money on this. The suction cup does not work at all, the cup is not molded correctly, I tried various surfaces and it will not stick to any. I even cleaned the surface and cup and wet them and still did not stick. I ended up taping it to my work bench. The part are small and numerous. Not user friendly...
