Milwaukee chalk reels provide users with the most durable and best performing chalk reels on the market today. Featuring exclusive StripGuard™ clutch combined with power tool inspired planetary gear system, providing the longest gear life in chalk reels. For added productively, Milwaukee chalk reels features fast retraction ratio of 6:1. High strength braided fine line creates clean, crisp lines and minimize chalk contamination during indoor use.
Purchased as a backup to my Tajima.
Low gear ratio is a great idea, but the internals are not capable of delivering the fast rewind. Immediately out of box (and with modest amount of chalk) it simply skips gear when rewinding, and it takes longer to retract the line than many other reels. The plastic body reel does the same thing, but this aluminum reel is significantly worse, and it is very frustrating to use.
Skips more often than it catches, and makes it unusable.
Good quality line, solid construction, but just not put together properly. I can only imagine how useless this would be in wet weather.
