Default Re: spare spool vs. whole new reel

Hi Hollywood,

I did the one frame & three spools thing for many years and it worked just fine because as you suggest in your scenario I had one rod and was using different lines. When I reached the point in life where I could buy rods and reels (even though I didn't really need them) I got more reels and rods. I still have the original Pflueger and Hardy reels that I bought the spools for and still use them on different rods today because now there are more rods. So I guess I'm saying spools are a good idea but if you are only thinking of this because you want to get or use a sink tip line I would point you toward using mini heads and not buying a sink tip.................... I guess you should explain why you want more spools or reels and we could go from there
