Rated 2 out of 5 by MarylandHunter Difficult to use This product was difficult to mount and use properly. The rubber band provided to hold the line apllies to much pressure/friction and caused line twist. I got the hang of it a little the second time but this product will probably go in the trash. I should of stuck to my normal routine of feeding the line though the rod guides and winding with the spool lying on the floor; this has always worked in the past but I had to try something different.

Rated 5 out of 5 lineminder If I had read the reviews first I would have been scared off, instead I went by the word of the basspro man. The instructions were sort of helpful and the picture filled in what I needed to know, filled two open faced reels with 12 lb fluorocarbon line. A few adjustmensts on the pressure with the rubber plug and I could not believe how easy it was to do it by myself, Took my time and found it to be a very relaxing experience, instead of chasing the normal loops, I had none. just took time and watched it hum along. Definately recommend, but take time and read instructions and look at picture first. January 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by jln1948 Line Winder Found the line winder very easy to use and would recomend it to any one who wants to load line on an open faced spinning reel without the normal twisting action. An excellent inexpensive tool. August 16, 2012

A:There are two halves. You have to take completely apart, place on the rod, then put the screws back on and tighten. Will hold line inline with spool and by tightening screws against the spool, you can increase the tension on the line.
A:Dont know about saltwater, but it fit my 7 ft rig with lots of room both smaller and larger to spare, it has a long bolt and wing nut that allows a large range of sizes
A:should be adjustable to any rod used for fresh water fishing

A:No, it can be used on most medium action and above. Most ultra light poles have a too small diameter.
