I have a couple of these reels and have been trying to find a spare spool or two for them. Having no luck, I called Abel and asked if they had any laying around. A couple of days later, Jeff Patterson, Sales Mgr, called me a said they had found a whole box of TR3 spools that had been machined, but not finished before the company pulled the plug on the model. The good news for me was he had three of them finished and sent to me. The bad news, they still carry the $140 price tag they had the last time they were cataloged. The Good News for you is that if you want one, call Jeff at Abel and he may be able to help you.
