Lighter than an Auto Reel…

by moab90245

Just found this on one of the survival forums. I’m trying to cut weight in my bag. And I have two fairly heavy yo yo auto reels. But then I found these. See how it works? The trip wire on the right is set into the o ring on the swivel on the left. Then when a fish bites it pulls the trip wire out and the whole thing springs open setting the hook. This is SOOOOO much lighter than a yoyo auto reel. Apparently they work so well they are outlawed in many jurisdictions. Anyone ever use these?:
