Anyone know the width of the spool? I'm guessing one inch...
Wondering what size delta you can get on it w/ enough backing to hold a fish in the pool...

Now you got me wondering, so I went and gave it a quick measure (with a yardstick, not calipers, so just close, not exact)- looks to be around 5/8's of an inch wide.

The 3 7/8 I have is one of the nicest Perfects I have, but I have to admit, one I have yet to find the right fit for. It's a bit heavy for it's capacity, (mine with line guard is heavier than my Taupo without line guard). I've used it on an 11'7 4/5, but a bit heavy. Building a 10 1/2 ft glass switch this winter, may be the one. For now it's on a sh 8 wt cane rod.
