If i'm looking correctly, and its what I think it is, i'd never use it.

Alot of times I have the line running between my thumb and ' pointer' finger trying to detect any signs of a strike with soft plastics.

Maybe if you got a ' hitch-hiker' thumb and need to relax it, it may be a good device lol rofl

I think that someone had to much time on the hands or should I say fingers. Great idea but not really needed I think.

Looks kinda cheaply made as well.

My problem is on the pinkie finger I get a wicked blister from setting the hook, when I cradle the reel like that. You can feel alot better with that style of cradle.

I think it's a waste of money. I almost always hold the reel that way, but the day I need a la-z-boy for my freakin finger, I'll be too durn lazy to roll out of the bed to go fishing.

I see little use, I had to get up and palm a reel to make sure but my finger sits in that spot w/o a chaselounge for it to lie on. It looks like this rest is made from a pretty light material, but wonder if it changes the weight or balance enough to notice after a long day fishing?

very good point. Now that I think of it I have never complained about my fingers feeling to heavy.
