The Ruslyn Cordwheel is the absolute best way to store, deploy, and pick up rope, cable, wire, det cord, shock tube and small-diameter hose. The design is simple, but brilliant. Reeling in couldn’t be easier. Since receiving this reel for testing, I have browsed stores for similar products to compare it to. There are many look-a-likes on the market, but they feel cheap and fragile in my hands when compared to the Ruslyn. The Ruslyn has survived drops from waist height onto concrete while loaded with 50 feet of air hose. The design allows for easy stacking for organized storage of multiple reels. After testing this reel, I wanted to purchase one for every cord, hose, rope and linear object on our truck. The only negative thing I have to say about this product is the sticker shock when I shopped for more. The price is steep, but I guess you get what you pay for!

The Ruslyn Cordwheel is a versatile reel and can be used for numerous applications. I especially feel the option of stacking several wheels is handy, even though I only had one. I could see this feature being beneficial by taking up a smaller footprint. Putting electrical cord is nice even though it recommends unwinding it all. I see why this is important with electrical cord. The electrical cord winds fairly easily and keeps it from getting tangled. The wheel could be used for phone line for a negotiator phone for and extended reach as most phones have their own wheel/roller. If my department had rolls of rope in each patrol car, this would be beneficial to keep the rope neat and tidy while in the trunk of a cruiser for rescues. I actually might let the Lake Patrol Officer use it on the boat in the summer. The center where you grab and reel the wheel is very easy to use and a great design. It makes quick work of winding. I believe this might be of use for SWAT teams, along with the smaller version. Can’t wait to see if it is beneficial for the SWAT or Lake Patrol. I believe this would work well for crime scene tape and is definitely a better option than the boxes the tape comes in.
