Who has built some homemade rigs to hold your line while putting line on your reels?
Post a picture if you can. Thanks

Well as usual I over engineered, had some scrap wood. Used a piece of plastic as a "brake" to keep it from free spooling.

No way I am going to embarrass myself by posting a picture of my “system”! Cardboard box, run a meat skewer through one side, through the spool, and out the other side. It works!

Kirk posted a really neat one back a while ago.
I can't remember it enough to know what he did though.

Not homeade but I bought a Berkley spooling station on clearance years ago. Works great. Came with a line stripper too.

I just lay mine on the floor. Never seen a need for a holder? As long as it comes off the right direction I've never had a problem.


Lol....me too......The floor or ground or bottom of the boat has always worked pretty good for me.

Is there a reason to make holders that I am not aware of?

Best I remember the one Kirk made held tension on the line so you didn't have to with your fingers.

I used it the other night to put new line on four poles , worked pretty well for me. The plastic just puts a little tension while you are reeling and when you stop it doesn't continue to spin. The base was heavy enough it never moved.
As far as a real reason for using one probably is just personal preference, I sat in the living room and didn't have a spool bouncing around the house :D

Y’all are making me look bad. I just screw a decking screw in a little ways in the wall of my garage. I do put a little angle in it so the spool doesn’t fly off lol
