Spool AND bearings? Even more than that? Second, how difficult is it to go back to the original spool? Is that something you can do on the fly or no? Thanks in advance for the help!
The Ray's Casitas spool won't have brake blocks on it and you'll have to remove 2 of them from the stock spool and install them on the Ray's spool. The blocks are held to the brake housing by tapered pins that can be pushed out. I hear it is easy to do. Once you're done you will have two spools with 2 brake blocks each and the spools can be dropped into the reel interchangeably.
