Spool question

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Spool question

Will a TDX 105Pi spool work in a TDX 103HVA?

I believe so.
Hopefully someone will chime in who's tried it.
A tdz spool fits with a bearing swap as well, that's what I had in my tdx.

It should drop right in. I think I've done that exact swap, but it's been years since I sold off my TD-X's. 99% sure, because I specifically recall that the gear sets will swap between the 2 reels.
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

Thanks. I ask because I have a couple TDX and I can get the 105Pi spools cheaper than a reel, and I prefer 6.3:1 over 5.1:1. I'll give it a try for finesse type baits.
