Texas is a big ass state. I live in north central Texas. Home of big ass deer, hawgs, mountain lions, bob cats, quail, and dove. And yes, i have the guns and ammo to take them all. Life member of the NRA...but we aint got no salt water up here much less someone that can string up saltwater reels. Anything else???

Get yourself a piece of half inch dowel or metal rod and 2 tennis balls.Put holes thru the balls to fit the dowel.Put the dowel in a bench vise slide 1 of the balls on then slide your spool on put the other ball on the other side.Put a pair of vise grips on the rod to adjust whatever amount of tension you need.If it's spectra fairly snug.Attach to your reel and turn the handle .
Over 55 years of dangling and I've never had anyone spool my reels up.
Or have them spool them up on the excel They ought to have a line winder on the boat.
Either way I wouldn't care for the idea of shipping all my babies.
