Default spooling my own reel

I'm no longer close to any of the sporting stores that will load line for me. I see a number of spoolers for under $30 which is the right price for me. are they worth it? I've no experience but I can follow directions. do I need a machine/rig to do it? got me two new Sahara's and want to get them loaded. having a hard time getting to cabela's.

You don't need a machine. Just pay attention to how the line comes off the spool and onto the reel.

The drill is how I unspool old line. Both setups are quick and easy

New guy you have kids right?

BOOM! You got your line spool holder right there!

But really, if you are doing a spinning reel just put the spool on the ground and stand over it.
