Shimano spinning reels. Which ones come with extra spools?

Recommended Posts

I can't seem to find a definitive answer online. One place says the Sahara includes an extra spool and another place says they don't. What I'm looking for is the lowest price reel Shimano makes that comes with the spare...

My Sahara didn't.  My understanding is anything higher than the Symetre comes with one.  The Sahara up all use the same spools, I ebay'd a Saros spool for ~$20.

My Sahara didn't come with one either but I don't think any Shimano reels come with an extra spool any longer.

I'm pretty sure the Stradic models and Saros do.  I'm not sure about the Sustain and Stella, but considering how much it costs to buy a spool for a Stella, I wouldn't be surprised if they don't come with a spare. 

I ordered a spare for my Symetre straight from Shimano, I think it was $25.

Thanks all!  I'll probably just pick up another Stradic then..

For anyone who is curious, I got a Symetre today and tried my extra Stradic spool on it.  The Stradic spool fit but when I put the drag knob on it stuck up a little higher and left a small gap that wasn't there with the Symetre spool.  I think since the Sahara, Symetre, and Saros drag knobs are the same so the spools should be interchangable.  I think the Stradic spool would work if you are okay with the gap.

I hope this helps anyone looking for extra spools.

I was actually looking for an extra spool for either my Saros or my Symetre in the garage today, couldn't find either one of course.

Did find one for a Sahara, but it said Sahara on it, couldn't bring myself to throw it on there.

Maybe in a "reel" pinch.   :;)

Buy one this year and see if you get an extra one.
