I don't live near a Walmart and I dislike ordering new items sight unseen online, so I tend to procrastinate. Thanks to the wonderful people who answered my question, and other reviews. I bought this winder. At first I was ready to throw it out of the window .. I rolled up too much of the 7 oz skeins and it twisted around the gears.
Once I got the hang of it, it performed beautifully. I now wind 7 oz skeins into two separate balls, with no problems.
The only problem that I still have, and this is strictly because I am a ripper, if I don't like what I have crocheted so far or see a mistake, I start again. With the spun ball, you cannot put the used yarn back into or on it, like a regular ball that you hand wind. If I just rip out a few rows, that is quickly crocheted back into my project, but if it is more than that, then there is a lot of loose yarn. But as I said, that is because I get obsessive/compulsive about my projects. :-)
