Are the spools interchangeable between the spectre and LD?Lewis, I'm not trying to spoil your day, but Maxcatch have a new die cast reel called the Gaze, it looks very like the Guideline Reach apart from different coloured anodising on the drag mechanism, drag adjustment knob etc. check it out on the Maxcatch website.
I paid about £170 for a Snowbee Spectre cassette reel, it's a cassette version of the Maxcatch LD Expert Waterproof Large Arbour CNC machine cut reel, they could have shortened the name.
Some of the other posts have noted that Maxcatch / Leichi China have numerous very famous fly fishing brands as partners noted on their website I.e. these brands buy Maxcatch products and have their logos applied. Guideline is one of these brands.
The ubiquitous Maxcatch.
