Tested by a member from Florida
Ease of Use 4.5
Cleaning & Maintenance 4
Individual Score 4.35
The Ruslyn Hook and Line Reel measures 9.5 inches tall, 6 inches wide and 4 inches thick. It is constructed of ABS plastic and is very lightweight. I initially filled it with 100 feet of 550 cord but there was still plenty of room so I added another 100 feet which fit perfectly without any issues. I then stripped the reel of the cord and loaded 300 feet of duplex 20 gauge firing wire onto the reel. The wire fit perfect. This reel is very versatile. The reel has a small handle you turn to wind the spool. It also has a center ring on the spool that turns to set the drag so that the cord or wire does not free spin and tangle. On the bottom of the reel is a guide to keep the cord or wire centered on the spool as you wind it back up. I have dropped the reel from a height of over 6 feet dozens of times, stood on it (i weigh 205 on a light day), thrown it against the wall and submerged it in water. There are a few small scuffs and slight gouges, but it still works great. The ABS plastic takes a beating and maintains its shape very well. I did not find any issues or limitations with this reel. I have used it during a Hook and Line training day with 550 cord and operationally to initiate a poof bag to dispose of gunpowder with firing wire. It worked great in both applications and is overall a very solid product.
The new Ruslyn Hook & Line Reel® has just been introduced to the worldwide EOD market. Samples have been sent to NZ, UK, USA, Canada, France, Germany, Sweden, Estonia and South Africa.
This new hook & line reel is a very high quality rugged and lightweight reel holding up to 80m (262ft) of 3mm Dyneema cord. Empty weight is 390 grams (0.86 lb). The Ruslyn Hook & Line Reel® is fitted with an adjustable clutch to control cord tension and prevent over-run and tangles.
Part number AUS004754RHLR-11 is colour black and NATO Codified (NSN) 8130/66-164-1146
Shipped in 20 reel cartons with a total weight of 10kg.
The tooling for injection molding of the Ruslyn Hook and Line Reel is progressing well and should be completed ready for production in August 2019. This lightweight hook & line reel will be exported world wide for use in EOD.
Orders have already been received from the FBI in the United States and military orders from the United Kingdom. An adjustable tensioner clutch has now been incorporated into the center axle of the reel. This will stop overrun and tangling of the cord.
The Ruslyn Hook & Line Reel will be supplied blank with no cord as each user will have their own preferred cord.

An article written in Maintenance News by Land Systems Division, Land Engineering Agency, Defence Materiel Agency (DMO) December 2012
For a number of years combat personnel have been
struggling with organising hook and line, cords
and cables. Soldiers had been using hand held fishing reels, tent pegs and pieces of wood. Ruslyn Holdings have been supplying the Cordwheel, NIN 66-153-3558 (see Figure 1) to the Australian Defence Force since 2006 and although suitable for its intended purpose, it is too large to be carried by the dismounted soldier. In identifying the requirement for a person pack reel, Defence now has a rugged and lightweight mini reel (see Figure 2) that overcomes those combat problems with carrying cords and cables. Primarily designed to meet the requirements of combat engineers, EOD, RASigs and clearance divers, the pack reel is chemical, impact and fire resistant, has no metallic components, is easy to operate, (even when wearing gloves) and can be used in all climatic/environmental conditions. During the initial trials this year, users were very exited with the many applications of the Ruslyn Pack Reel and with this positive responce Trunk Systems Batteries and Chargers (TSBC) has now introduced into service the Ruslyn Pack Reel, NIN 66-159-6431. The Ruslyn Pack Reel is suitable for carrying:
- DON-10 (WD-1A/TT)150 m
- ROPE (10 mm)14 m
- Hook & Line (3.5 mm)112 m
- Detonator Cord 38 m
- Size: 230 mm (diameter) x 62 mm (width)
- Weight: 375 gm (empty)
Further in formation is available on the Pack Reel page or the Australian Defence Force Logistics Manager

High Tech / Small / Military Grade Anchor Rope Cord Reel – Ideal for Kayaks!
I’ve finally found the ultimate anchor rope management cord wheel. Anchor rope management is a big problem for me and I have a Ranger Z19 bass boat. I’ve started fishing more open water, and anchor frequently when I find a hump or other structure that is holding fish. I hate having anchor rope all over the front deck, particularly when I am fishing or burning across the water at high speeds. It’s quite dangerous and a big hassle!
I’ve scoured the Internet looking for a small reel that is durable, and just haven’t been able to find anything. About six months ago, I found this company in Australia called Ruslyn Holdings that was creating a small cord wheel for military combat engineers, search
and rescue, special operations, etc.
This particular reel called the Ruslyn Pack Reel just came out of beta, and is now patented and being distributed in cases of 25 reels
to military organizations. I begged the Ruslyn CEO to sell me one reel, but he wouldn’t do it. But I kept begging him…
Finally he agreed to sell me 3 reels, which I received a few days ago. These things are awesome!
Many samples of the Ruslyn Pack Reel have been made to prospective buyers in many parts of the world including Canada, USA, Peru and Hawaii.
Exports of the Ruslyn pack Reel have been made to Canada and the USA
Supplies of the Ruslyn pack Reel have also been delivered to Tasmania, Victoria and NSW.
