Baitcasting spool spacer to save line

Recommended Posts

I have several Ambassadeur 5000s, after throwing a lot of line away, is there like a spool spacer or different spool that can be used so that instead of loading 200-250 yds of line, it would only take 100 yds or so?

I've tried the old braided line loaded underneath trick, but thought there might be a different way. I haven't seen anything searching around so far.

Thanks

I have an old (88) 5501 (Black) that has the clear spool arbor reducer on it. You might want to contact Pure Fishing Garcia and see if they make one for your reels. Make sure you have the number off of the reel foot, in case they ask.

Good Luck...

Why keep throwing the backer away?  Just leave it and respool the last 100 yards or so.  Alternatively, use a smaller capacity reel.

X2, I use backing on every reel.

Received a prompt answer today, the arbors are no longer available.

Back to backing....
