Bass Pro Shops XPS Aluminum Line Winder for Baitcast Reels
Just a horrible product. The suction cup does not stick, the arm is cheap pot metal and bends easily. Avoid this one...

great when re fabricated
I love this product. but only after making a few adjustments to it. I would suggest to someone that when you first get this item pull the suction cup off an throw it in the trash. I drilled a 1/4" hole in a 2 x 4 stud about 6" long mounted it in my garage and used that for a preeminent mount. The suction cup never holds for me. I had tried different surfaces such as glass , wood , & metal.

easy line winder
i bought both the spinning and baitcast line winders with the suction cup (but did not use the rubber cup) after reading the diffuculty others had, instead from an old spinning rod and a 3 ft piece of shelf plank i made my own line winding setup. i cut the rod mount from the rod then mounted it and drilled a 1/4 inch hole in a 4 inch cut piece of 2x4 mounted it (for the the line winder) on the plank and now i can fill my spinning or bait cast reels with ease, use your imagination and you can do it too!

Save a few bucks
I bought this to put line on my reel by myself. Opened the package, and all the parts went all over, nothing was tightened down. Finally, get it put back together, put a spool of line on it, and go to suction cup it to a table, but the suction cup won't stay on the table. I had to have my wife hold it while i put the line on the reel. I think the system worked fine, but the suction cup doesn't work well. Next time I use it, I'm putting the set up in my vice.
