I've used the 1320' reels for a while, and they work well for me. The 2,000' reels, however, are the Devil's handiwork! That length of wire really over-fills the reel after first use, and it's a tedious nightmare to wind and unwind. I've had tearful spells spent sitting on the ground untangling fragile wire for more than 1/2 hr, wrestling with whether I should just hack off the rat's nest with scissors. This is one product I have a hard time believing Premier uses on a regular basis, it just seems like those reels aren't big enough to handle this much line.
Also, I bought the reels pre-wound, but they don't come with the handles installed. So you have to unreel them most of the way to install the handles, which defeats the purpose of paying for them to be pre-wound. You could wait to install the handles in the field once the wire is in use, but who wants to fiddle with wrench and small parts out in the grass?
Typically, you don't need the knob the unwind the conductor. The knob and handle are primarily used to apply tension as you wind the reel. It also helps to place the included washers on both sides of the plastic reel when assembling.

I now have three Supra reels which I ordered pre-wound from Premier1. We use them to control our cattle as they strip graze our pastures. They are well made, easy to use and rugged and they work well for us.

I bought pre-wound 2000' Intellatwine on a Supareel for my sheep. Works great to contain my small flock with 3 strands. They learned not to touch the fence within a day or two now they don't come near it at all. Takes about an hour to set posts then run the wire. The paddock is about 150-160' square using only one reel of 2000' and I can get 5-7 days grazing with 13 sheep.
Only negative I can think of is that when rewinding the wire on the reel sometimes it comes of the reel and tangles. This gets better with practice.
