Stradic FL C3k spool swap 2500S ?

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.

Stradic FL C3k spool swap 2500S ?

Stradic FL C3000XG

I have a couple of these now.

Was looking at picking up an extra spool but was wanting a shallow spool for BFS crappie trout etc. Wanted to use the JDM 2500 Shallow spool to get the most out of the cast.

First as the C3k is a 2500 body with a deeper spool can I swap on a 2500 spool? I assume so as youbcan on the Gosa with same bodies.

Looking at hedgehog, they show spools based not only on size series but also gear size as well. I thought spool sizes were equal baring deep vs shallow. Does gear ratio matter in terms of spool.

Example I want 2500S (shallow) spool.

Hedgehog lists: 2500S and 2500SHG

Is there an actual difference in those spools other than possible markings?


One thing for sure wish I had not gotten out of fishing, selling off most of my gear, like I did, while the kids were in highschool & college sports. Rebuilding my gear is costly at today's prices and I prefer the quality and duty cycle of higher end kit. But it's fun and exciting.....as long as I don't look at my bank statements.

Thanks it was just them separating them by reel gear size that threw me.
