A reel is an object around which lengths of another material (usually long and flexible) are wound for storage. Generally a reel has a cylindrical core and walls on the sides to retain the material wound around the core. In some cases the core is hollow, although other items may be mounted on it, and grips may exist for mechanically turning the reel.

Famous quotes containing the word reel:

    When her guests were awash with champagne and with gin,
    She was recklessly sober, as sharp as a pin.
    An abstemious man would reel at her look,
    As she rolled a bright eye and praised his last book.
    William Plomer (1903–1973)
