Stadic fk spool

Post by mrpao » Sat Aug 24, 2019 5:16 am

Does anybody know if the stradic fk spools will work on the stradic CI4+ body.
Kind of tired of all the red on the stradic CI4+.

Don't forget the two series of Ci4+ exist, either the FA or FB.

I know an Ci4 FA spool will work on an FJ reel in the 1000 size.

I'm 99% sure they'll interchange of the FK / FB series.

I know in the past the 2500 / 3000 Ci4 F series reel spools didn't do full fitment due to the drag knobs rubber seals, they were literally a pooftienth off sizing between each other requiring different knob or replacing the rubber seal while in the field...

I'll double check with the QC engineer when he arrives today. The tooling is similar on the FB-FK models, but not 100% the same. There could be a slight issue with fitment of the FK spool. I'll let you know when I have an answer.
