30 lb. test line x 500' on Halo Winder
What are the advantages of a Halo winder (or also known as yo-yo winders) over a Stake winder? The first advantage is that when you need to release a lot of line quickly, you only need to slip the winder over your wrist and lock your hands together. The line will let out quickly with no effort on your part. The second advantage is that when it is time to bring the kite in, each loop you put on the winder (depending on the circumference of the winder) is about a foot and a half of string. Compare that to the 4 inches of string each time you spin a stake winder between your fingers and it won't take you long to figure out that a halo winder is worth the few extra dollars.
