Could be eaisier to use I have indicator reels for trolling. I bought this line counter to measure line when I am spooling reels. As other reviewers have stated. It is very difficult to get it to work. It does not seem to be very accurate to me when it does work. This counter clips onto the rod and has a knob on the back to adjust the tension of the clip to firmly secure the counter to the rod. It has another knob on the side to adjust the tension wheel or whatever it is inside the slot that the line rides on. The lever on the top of the counter is to move the wheel back that rides on the line to insert and remove the line. The problem that I have using it is getting the line in exactly the right place in the slot for it to measure the line passing through it. If the line is not in the exact correct position in the slot it will not work. You cannot see in there so it is just a hit and miss guess until you might get it to work. To make it even more difficult it is necessary to also adjust the tension of the wheel that measures the line at the same time. I thought it was just me having these problems until I read other reviews. Yet others seem to get it to work just fine. Probably poor quality control when it is assembled. If you buy this item and you get one that will work it should work with any type of reel. I would think that with an open face spinning reel one would place the counter farther up the fishing rod behind a guide since there would be so much line wobble with that type of reel. With the problems of this device that so many seem to be having. I would expect better from Berkley. I do not think that this is a Berkley product even if their name is on it. I also have another line counter that is exactly like the Berkley counter in every way except the other one says "Shakespeare" on it. September 1, 2011
Works fine 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. July 27, 2011
works for me!!! I bought this to help me load braid on my crappie reels 100 yds at a time. It works great for that. Sometimes getting it started is not easy but otherwise OK. July 8, 2011
Works as intended I use this when I am spooling a reel. It enables me to know how much line is going onto my reel without having to guess. July 2, 2011

A: 
Yes, in fact I think it works better with braided line since it has more abrasiveness than mono. (Helps hold the line more securely in the counter slot).

How does it attach?

Details: 
My concern would be that I might want to use it on different rods and for spooling other reels. I don't want it to mar or damage the finish on the rod. Any tools needed to install/remove it?

A: 
No tools are needed. It has a plastic clamp something like a clothes pin. Then there is a lockdown bolt and nut to secure it. It should fit on any rod and it did not damage my rods at all.

It has a screw down clamp that has rubber on it to protect the rod . No tools necessary. You can switch it to another rod in less than 1 minute. The clamps work really good and you really don't have to clamp them down very tight. Hope that helps out.

A: 
Yes, that is what I used it on. The only thing was I had to turn the rod with the reel on top so I could see the counter. I had to turn the handle on the reel backwards since it was upside down. But it was no problem.

Yes but it will not last long and you will want to rinse it very good after each use. I would seriously think about buying a reel with one built in it already. That is the way to go for sure. Good Luck.

I haven't tried to cast with it, but I think it would interfere with the cast. I imagine it would work for straight drop only.

I only attach these when trolling. I take them off when casting, since it is SO easy to do so. I think the fishing line might wrap around the device when casting.
