Default Need help on a few measurements

I've been exploring the concept of making my own reel lately. The only thing hanging me up right now is how deep to make the spool. I'm looking at making a large arbor 6 weight with a diameter around 3.625 inches. Could somebody measure the distance between the rim and bottom of the spool for me from a similar reel?

If you get 'no joy' here contact Tim at SpeyCo reels. He'd be a wealth of info on all aspects of a DIY. Feel lfree to tell Tim I suggested the call.
