Anyone have a good line winder contraption? I'm switching retrieve hands on my reels and am having issues justifying a $50+ tool...
It's time for a winter project. Thanks if you have something interesting to share - Pete

shanks, i spent the money and I'm glad I did. I use it all the time switching lines on spools. it is also nice that it folds up so i can carry it in a gear bag so i can do line work when on the road. i find that sometimes it is not worth the agravation to make certain things this was one of them.
good luck

Pete I have seen some do okay with cordless drill & different things chucked from a 2 litre plastic to some rather unique home made winders=use your imagination. I actually had a small winder LONG ago which didn't work enough for full line & bunches of backing. Have a set-up now that works, unfortunately I'm at my other place now & won't be back in the Keys until Sunday. Hope I can get a www. for you.

VF - Which tool do you use? I may need to go this route.

Ron - I tried the 2L thing last night and because of the rounded edges my backing was sliding off the sides and made a real mess of things. I need a better mousetrap!!

Pete. if you can find one of those bulk mono spools that tackle shops use to fill reels, they work great. You'll need a bolt big enough to fit the hole, and a cordless drill. You'll need an asistant to hold said spool for re-winding on to reel.

cheap, but effective. thats me.

Makes me wonder. Harry's not a hunter that I know of. What would a guy have to have googled to come up with that thing? :eek: I tried "probe", not there, I tried "anal", not there, hmmmmmmm. Oh oh I think I just figured it out. Not that there's anything wrong with that.:D

I told you it is a cat carrier. He probably went to Pet Smart.

What do you suppose the mind is like that designed that tool? Bet they had a laugh in the patent office

I kill stuff smarty pants. I've been up to my elbows in plenty of deer carcasses (something tells me i'll regret typing that) and various sundry small birds and other assorted critters. That butt out tool has many uses though....especially helpful in gutting wayward choggies
