That's the largest size, a #1898 I think.
I bought it as a spare, but ended up using it a lot.
When they were closing them out, I sent away for a single spare spool and not only did they send me 2 instead, but I got charged less than the original asking price. Can't argue with "free"
Salt tends to build up under the drag plate. That may be the problem with yours
