Does the bolt mess up the bearing surfaces inside the fly reel spool?They’re several hundred dollars. I looked into it at one point and found them (alltackle.com/amp/cyclone_line_winder.htm) but ended up buying a 1/4” bolt, two 1/4” nuts, two rubber washers, and using a drill and an old line spool. Almost as fast, far cheaper, and works with all lines and backing I’ve tried.
These are awesome! I have a rotation of lines for my 8 weight I swap through over the course of a year steelhead>warmwater>ocean salmon>steelhead. I wouldn't want to use it monthly but its awesome for a project every season or two.Look for a RIO Cranky Kit. They are about 10 bucks on line. No motor, but if you have a wrist they work fine
