The spool tool was a little awkward at first to attach to a light spinning rod, but once adjusted further up the pole shaft it worked well. It will accommodate the majority of the line spools as long as they are not more than 4” wide. I was able to wind a heavy line base and then change to a lighter line to top the real off with little effort. Overall performance was good.

This is the first one I have owned. I always try to get my 5 year old to hold a spool through a pencil, with mixed results. This product performs as advertised. It is very lightweight, and easy to use.

Does the Job
This simple tool makes loading a reel much easier. By adjusting the screw you can increase the tension on the line to assure a snug fit. Wish it was easier to take on and off...some sort of quick release mechanism, but it does the job, and I don't have to bug my wife to hold the line anymore.

I tried this and it was next to useless for loading light, limp line. Tangles galore. It awaits the trash pickup.
