proper name for pex spinner reel

was trying to Google same and came up empty. Any help on what the politically correct term is so can look at them online,,,,OR has anyone made one for a double reel,,,one for blue, one for red.

Or is a better idea to have 2 single ones??/

only way one person in a crawlspace can unwind and get something done,,,,hopefully

PEX uncoiler or unwinder. But they ain't cheap.

When I did my repipe in the crawl space under my house, I rolled the PEX out on the lawn. A little solar heat helps straighten it out. I cut the approx. length I needed and pulled in under the house.

We use 20' lengths because they are easier to work with.
Sometimes we use rolls for a lengthy return line on a recirc system.
