Question about the spacers. I've seen some people have one 2mm spacer, and others have what you have. I'm guessing it's just more aesthetic. Is there any difference besides the slight line lay offset? I want to try my hand at making a few on the mill. Thanks.

The 50th is still one of my favorite reels. After a few upgrades from stock, it is nearly bulletproof and stunning.
Awesome job! =D> =D> =D>

I've never seen only but one spacer in a reel, not sure how that would work to be honest.
Maybe someone can chime in, sorry.

I think you've inspired me to build one myself. Great build!

Thats easy, just put a TDZ 103 set plate in place of the stock set plate. Presto! Only 1 spacer needed!
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.
