10+ years ago J Hara store sold spools for the 550 and I think for the 454 too. It looks different from the older Tiburon spool that I have and the sides are too flat, no ribs on inner sides of spool, and color is off for it to be a P series spool (I believe they came in plain boxes, no markings to indicate maker). Does anyone know who made them for J Hara?  I have to strip the line off but I'll post pics of the spool next to the Tiburon spool I have. I finially decided to do something about my warped 550 stock frames so I ordered matching frames/spools from Tiburon. Trying to decide if I should keep the J Hara spool or put it up for sale on CL.

I don't know who made them for J.Hara but I have several 550's and 546's with their spools and prefer them over tiburon. I just looked at the packaging tube they came in and it only has the Hilo/Big Island address for J.Hara store with no indication of who made them. If you're really curious, you can post the question on their facebook page. if you are selling the spool I'd be interested in buying.

Aloha,
Kyle

Thanks for the info!  I was just over at the store a week or so ago, if I go back I'll ask the guys who work there. I'll let you know if I decide to part with it.

I don't think they will reveal their source.  Those spools are good spools.
