I don't know if they are the "best" or not but I have a few of these in my house and like them.

I have put these in all my wheel houses. The bell inside is plenty loud to wake a guy up at night, and the wheel spins over very easily. I highly recommend them

Check out the ones they sell at Fishhouse supply in Bufflao, MN, nice set up and the rod holders can come off the wall for storage if you so choose. They swing nice and are quite noisey. You can order extra hangers so you can move them from spot to spot if you do not want to buy numerous ones.

Lewandoski Glow-in-the-Dark Rattle Reels, lifetime warranty and Fishhouse is a great company with even better customer service. They use to sponsor on HSO, may still, I do not know.

Well built, very smooth when the line goes out and one can set the tension with a rubber grommet on the back side of the reel.

I have had the ones above and nothing wrong with them at all, these just seem to be a nicer unit and very user friendly.

I have 4 of them and 6 holders incase I want to move 1 or 2 in a different location in the house.

Not sure if they are the best on the market but I am very happy with them.

Lindell hands down! They are almost too smooth sometimes. At first I was afraid they weren't loud enough but they are just fine. I've had them all and these are the best. IMHO If you buy the wooden ones and want to fish panfish you'll need to get different reels, with Lindell they work great for both.

I have both Lindells and the Rattle Snake ones.

Lindells is by far my favorite. The snake ones suck when the line gets behind the spool......also can't be set as light.

Also the rattle reel comes off the rod an the rod serves as a delicate dead sticking holder as it balences the rod an will detect the lightes of bites. Iv have 7 hole loaded for bear with rattles an holders

I used old 1000 yard line spools on 1/4 inch rods we bent and inserted in screw eyes into the walls. Put a squirt of spray silicone on the shaft once a season and used the rubber bands from the 02 minnow bags in front of and behind spool to adjust tension. For line used old fly line with 4ft leader. You can throw fly line all over the floor and it does not knot or tangle. Great when my kids where small.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
