I just hate walking the pipe out, takes up my time LOL. One plus to the reel is that you will not have alot of scrape pipe in the back of your truck at the end of the day. I think with the reel that you could probably get 2 or 3 more zones in in a day too. If you have one guy unroll the pipe when you pull , now he can be digging the head holes. Many time I have kinked the pipe using the loop way. Too big. The one I seen was a flat unit, made for easy transport. It wouldn't be much bigger then the roll of pipe. I have a day in the shop this Wed. I think I'll stop down at the local metal yard and buy some 1 in. square stock and make one. I'll take some pic. when I'm done with it.
