Among several new chalk reels from Irwin is the Mach6, with a redesigned body and steel handle with a larger center clutch. A 6-to-1 gear system retrieves the line six times faster than typical reels, according to the company, and the polyester/nylon, 100-foot line is twice as durable than a polyester line. A wide-prong hook secures the line to a work surface, and an EZ Access Door lets the user remove the back panel with a phillips-head screwdriver for spool changes and line cleaning. The tool holds up to 2 ounces of chalk. Price: $13. 800-464-7946.
