Baitcasting spool switch ?

Recommended Posts

As some spinning reels come with an extra spool to accommodate changing line test or type, I'm wondering does anyone do the same thing with casting reels?

I'm considering picking up a few extra spools for certain casting reels so I could use the same set-ups for different applications; when wanting to switch from say mono or fluorocarbon to braid etc.

Now a days the side plates just slide open and the spools pop right out. I think it would help diversify my modest rod/reel arsenal without adding more rigs (which I don't have the the room for in

the Old Town).

:D

Yep, for instance I have three spools for flipping stick - one with 50# braid, one with 65# braid, and one with 30# fluoro.

Right - Flipping was the first thing that started me thinking about this. I think I'll pick up a few spools and give this a shot.

Thanks

I used to purchase extra spools but new ones are somewhat expensive.  Now I look for a used reel with the spool I want and go that route.

I also carry a few extra spools...  one with braid and two with lighter mono.  (it helps having several reels of the same model that way you have multiple options.

wouldn't it be easier to just change the entire reel instead of fooling around with the spools?  Just an observation.
