Any information on using a linewinder as I haven't used one before? I noticed a few weeks ago, that Wobblyface had sent for one and I would like to ask him what make, how he got on with it, and can it also be used to wind backing onto the reel?

Advice from anyone would be much appreciated.

I got the Rio, nothing special but very handy.
It's more useful for taking fly line of the reel and you can use those old large plastic spools that the fly line comes on. For some reason I have kept a few.
I've used mine to take line of reels and then reload onto different reels.
I also have a smaller one more used with mono when loading coarse reels (no good for removing line), this is also good when loading backing on a reel. Easier than using a pencil and your feet, or someone else.

So really I need to buy 2 types, one to put a spool of backing onto my reel the small type. Then a larger one to put a spool of fly line onto my reel. Be good if there's one that would do both. Thanks again.
