Berkley Line Counter
This is simple to install and use. It seems to re reliable, although I've only used it three times now. It's easy to read, easy to reset, easy to use. Hard to beat a product like that. And, it's portable.

Easy to use. Quick attach/detach. Accurate. Stays in place.
I use these when I troll for muskies. I want my lure at a certain depth and this gives me the confidence to be there. I can easily repeat where my lure was when I caught that big one!! Anyone who trolls should have these.

i have 2 of these counters and they work great.
I did however take them apart and put a rubber O-Ring around the wheel not to big but enuff to make my line catch every time i dropped it in then flipped the bail this helps with the thin slick mono lines i sometimes use. i use these counters for trolling as well as spooling my reels and they have both worked without any problems. a friend recomended these to me and his look like they have been around a long time.

I bought two of these line counters and have been pleased with them so far. They are not heavy duty items but certainly allow you to measure line you let out or line you spool onto your reel. When spooling new line onto your reel starting at 000 the instrument counts backwards from 999 down to 001. With simple addition or subtraction you know exactly how much line you've spooled onto your reel. In releasing line gradually for trolling the instrument counts upwards normally from 000 to 999 and instantly shows how much line out. With some care in mounting, handling, and line insertion this product does the job and is well worth the inexpensive price. Do go slow in letting line out for trolling to insure that the line stays in the counter slot and the instrument is counting consistently. Also, remember that you can not cast with this if the line is inserted in the instrument. It is not designed to be utilized with casting.
