Works extremely well
Pros
No mess with unnecessary parts.
Effective.
Makes coils quick and perfect.
Almost no learning curve.
Feels nice to touch.
Easy to wind both clockwise and anticlockwise.
Makes really tight coil.

Cons

You have to grip the wire with your thumb.
Not suitable to put it on the deck to manipulate the finished coil.

Works great without wasting too much wire like those stuffs with rotating handle which used to be my favorite. This jig makes perfect contact wraps without failure by simply applying some force against the base of the jig while winding it.
Needless to compare with those Kuro Loosecoiler craps which even fails time to time especially with higher guage soft wires.

couldn't find a video showing how it works.

It works exactly the same way as a screwdriver or one of those stepped rods, except that there's a little ledge with grooves in it to help you hold onto the "I'm not winding this part" end of the wire.

I like the idea of the jig but I'm missing a hole at the end of those grooves where you can stick the end of the wire through so that you don't have to hold it with your thumb. When you have to hold it with the thumb, you can't turn the jig (screwdriver like) any more. For an experiment it's too expensive for me - I'll wait for a V2 with holes and some reviews ;-)

Just a lid above the two grooves could be enough? With a hole for the shaft. Then you would just turn the whole thing.

And/or the part with the grooves could be free-spinning?
