    For somebody who has arthritis, this is a great kite winder. It’s easy to hold and to handle, unlike the usual handles that comes with the kites. It took it a while to actually get shipped and to get here, but when it finally came the packaging was in good condition. I just thought it was the winder itself, and didn’t know it came with string, i had also ordered 400 ft string, but the string that came with it, and using the string that came with the original handle from my kite, it works well. The only bad thing is don’t let go of the winder, cuz once you do, it will unwind itself at a tremendous speed and when you try to stop you will hurt your fingers as i did. But i love it, and my cat has figured out how to unwind the string and play with it also, but i have it put away now so she can’t get a hold of it.

    This spool has worked perfectly for my needs. I am just a novice kite flyer, but this spool has met all of my needs. I flew my kite in light wind, so it was difficult to get it off the ground, but this spool allowed me an easy way to unwind a lot of line at a time, when a good gust came along. I don’t think I would have been able to get my kite up with a standard spool. By simply holding the base, the line would let out a great deal of line to get the kite up quickly. The reeling in part is okay, but I cannot seem to reel it all in fast enough, when the wind dies quickly. One other note…I got my kite stuck in a few trees around my yard, and the line was strong enough to yank my kite out of the trees, each time (about 5 times), with no damage.

    I could not find an exact measurement for how much line is in the spool, but I believe it is about 200′ to 250′, based on a rough mathematical estimate after laying it out on my lawn.

    Only complaint: There is no good way to stop the line when you let it out quickly, without hurting your hands a little. The only way to stop it is to use your thumb or free hand. When it is spinning really fast, this can be a bit painful until you get it slowed down.

    This is just what we needed. A good length of string that was easy to wind. We had just bought one of those micro video cameras and my son needed a way to send it up a couple hundred feet. This did the job. we were able to shoot the video from above and then wind it down.
