Broadcast Reel/Snake Combos

Part number: See Chart

These amazing reels come in two different sizes, are stackable, and can be built to your specifications with any number of connectors, length of cable and are all hand built right here in the USA.

 
 
 

Description

The WD-7 or WD-7C with lockable heavy duty casters have built in connector plates on their sides that can be punched and wired to your custom specifications. Surprisingly, it's not a lot more expensive than buying a standard Medusa® snake with a separate reel.

Some pre-manufactured reels (like Whirlwind's WD-5) have a built in tray on the bottom for storing the stage box.
