The 9 Plus extra spool is offered in both large and mid arbor configurations. The two different spools are capable of running on the same frame, allowing anglers to run three or more line weights on a single reel.
You should always have different line ready, and instead of spending extra on a spare reel, I get the cheaper spool and carry it with me. For the 9+ I got a mid-arbor for spey applications and also to spool up with a 10 wt. intermediate line for when I fish the salt. Great Hatch quality. Was this review helpful? (0) Yes (0) No
