Got the chinese spool from ebay. They're pretty much gen one Ray's Studio spools for $17. Comes with a garbage bearing, but i've installed one from ZPI and its all good now. Wont be able to use it until Spring, tho.

Got mine today.

Weight is exactly as specified, 7.9g. Quality is good, like my other Ray's spools. Spool seems very quiet.
