RIO CRANKY KIT
Change lines quickly and efficiently as fishing conditions change.
- RIO's Cranky Kit is a quick, convenient fly line spooling/storage station that includes one RIO Cranky (featuring ergonomically shaped handles for a smooth, comfortable operation) and a RIO fly line spool.
- Simply wind the line off the reel through the rod on to the fly line spool that is provided, unloop the line from the backing, then loop the new line to the backing and wind the new lone on to the reel. With this technique anglers will not need to restring the rod.
- In addition, with a few extra fly line spools, anglers can build a convenient fly line storage system and library.

Interesting tool that everyone should own. What better way to efficiently remove fly line from your reels for quick replacements or storage. My only gripe is that it only works with Rio spools because they use square holes on one side verses Scientific Anglers using round holes on both sides of theirs however SA uses paper spools so I suppose it no longer matters. Get one - the price is right and you won't be sorry!

Genius idea and a must have piece of equipment in your gear bag. Extra spools are great too but this tool helps you from having to buy multiple spools. If you’re on a trip and Fishing multiple bodies of water and need to switch from floating to sinking line and then maybe to cold water line vs tropical this makes the process super simple. Very inexpensive for the time it can save.
