Thanks for the response, I appreciate it. As I'm probably going to be needing a spool or two, I'll watch out for that. Have you any opinion on the build quality towards the end?wrke said:There's no difference between the light gray and dark gray spools, as long as the rims are polished. At the end, Hardy made the spools completely dark (seemed like a powder finish)— no polished rim. I almost burned my hand up on a bonefishing trip (I had left the other spools back at the hotel that day). When I got home I chucked the spool up in a drill press and polished the finish off of the rim.
