Bought this to tidy up my collection of XLR cables. When connecting to XLR cables the plugs get a bit bulky and do not perfectly wind around the cable drum. But nonetheless I winded several cables around the drum and now do not have to unfold before and fold them after use. Very comfortable! The cable drum is not rock solid but okay. You can block it with a little plastic part what works quite fine. I have no idea why some non-pro should spend more for a cable drum of this size. And it's much more tidy than throwing cables into a case. And not as annoying as folding them. I now have a dedicated cable drum for each size of XLR cables I have... I love that Monk-ish order ;-)
It's a cheap cable reel but even while touring with them, they never broke on me. It has even a really basic plastic brake that it's really useful and the you often don't see on many cable reels. If have a lot of XLRs you must have something like this.
