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.
