I Figured Out A Way To Add A Line Counter On My Fishon Spooler Fishing Line Spooler!

I have the large Fishon Spooler from Sportman Innovations, LLC. I can now spool all my reels. With the adapters i can accommodate my ultra lights to my massive 14K spinners. All my Okuma reels now are re-spooled with Soft Steel line due to this spooler. To understand my line capacity was a job unspooling & re-spooling with a rod line counter attached. But now i figured out how to do it up to 999 meters.
To get a wheel counter would've run me 2-3 times the cost of this unit! So i'm happy to share my modification success with those who want to spool their own reels & know the yardage.



Traveled the World diving & fishing. Became a ranked billiard player in Asia. Won a few senior bowling tournaments. I travel to the US, Australia & Europe working with museums & doing educational lectures.

the product you use should have been labeled "spinning reel spooler." I can already hand crank line onto my 50 baitcasters. I was hoping I had stumbled across a solution to keep from wearing my wrist out!

I have both spinning reels and bait casters. The above spooler would be made more for the spinning reels for sure. Nice product. woot
