    I have to vote "no" on both of these options.
1)    Reaming requires cutting flutes, and reamers are typically     either parallel to the axis, or have a very shallow angle.     Certainly not as steep as this one has. This is closer to a     wood screw, except for the constantly growing diameter at the     root of the thread.
2)    EZ-outs have a very shallow angle too, aside from my never     having seen one made for left-handed screws. The shallow angle     is to draw it in fast to where it jams. You don't want the     mechanical advantage that comes with the long screw as that     would work harder at expanding the screw inside the hole (thus     defeating the purpose) instead of trying to get a bite which     will remove the screw. (EZ-outs have enough problem with     expanding the screw, and are thus usually a terrible choice     anyway, as they tend to get wedged in place and then break of,     and are harder to drill out than the original screw. :-)
    What this appears to be for is to screw into the end of a chunk of log, forcing it to split. Trying to use it to pull almost anything would be problematical, as it would make whatever it was expand and wedge in place.
    Enjoy,         DoN.
