No extra spools w/ new shimano reel

6 posts in this topic

Hope yer all having (had) a great Labor day weekend.

Just purchased a couple new shimano spinning reels at Cabela's.....got home and found out they apparently no longer include extra spools in with reel purchase.

No good. I like the extra spool option.

So, where do you purchase new spools for 2009 shimano reels? Been looking online and can't seem to find anyone that sells the 2009 reel specific spools.

Pain.

Thanks.

what kind of reel from shimano? I bought a sahara 4000 it too did not have a spare spool. I called shimano and raised cane about it they sent me two at no charge. They stopped including the extra spool just recently. It stinks.

I think they only offer new spools on the Saros on up now.. It was to save costs so they didnt have to raise the cost of the reels too much. I think you can order new spools directly from shimano.. Contact customer service.

ive been very unhappy with shimano this year, they dont have the extra spool anymore and the sizes they came out with this year are either too big or too small.

needless to say i will be looking at other brands in the next couple years, even tho the reels I did buy i am happy with

I have the Sonora 4000 and it's a great reel, very smooth. But yeah the lack of a spare spool really gets me down.

The last time I was at Cabela's, their bargain cave had a bucket full of assorted spools. I found a couple that I needed at a couple of bucks apiece.

    • It's just sooooooooo easy.
    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
