Sometimes finding extra spools for a discontinued reel model can be a challenge. Especially so, if the brand & model were not commonly found in the inventory of fly shops.

That's the point I am at. Still not willing to give up my Crown and Crown II reels. I'm buying extra spools and reels of ebay just for parts and replacements.

Extra spool makes sense to me if you want to add another line weight(2 different wt rods, one reel).

I do the extra spool for backpack fishing. When I go hike in I either take a 1 & 3wt rod with me. So I have one reel with two spools. If the wind picks up I can switch to my 3wt rod easily. Also do the same with a 3wt/4wt setup

I have two TR3 reels and six extra spools. I have my 6 and 7 weight lines, plus a couple of switch lines on those eight spools. When my natural silk DT stops floating, I have plastic backup I can snap on and be back in the water in short order. Since, I'm not likely to need to fish a 6 wt and a switch at the same time, I can pop off the 6 wt, drop on a scandi 300 and put the reel on a switch rod and be in business.

Extra spools are cheaper than reels. If I have 12 rods, do I need 12 reels? My answer is no, but I likely need 12 spools.
