I need a spool, but I know the age of the reel can prevent the 9/0 from using the newer aluminum spool..how do I know if it will work?

Many on here will know --

Daron, Lee, Ted, Chad, Alan, Bryan, Bill, and probably another dozen other knowledgeable experts.

They will be along shortly.

Best,

Self-worth is how you value yourself. It’s not based on what others think of you or the things you have (or haven’t) accomplished—it comes from within. But it’s easy to forget that our worth isn’t determined by outside forces -- each of us sets our own price.

In life, be flexible, willing to listen to others, willing to change your mind based on your good judgement -- that is how progress is made, and new horizons are discovered.  When the winds of change blow -- A flexible limb moves and thrives -- a stiff and stubborn limb just snaps.

If your 9/0 has ball bearings, not bushings, the aluminum spool should work.

That's the only difference. If your 9/0 is really old it will have bushings on each side instead of bearings. That will limit you to using the heavy bronze spool only.

^^What akfish and handi2 both stated^^

9/0's are a relatively straightforward swap as the aluminum spool used (29L-115) has remained unchanged, even on the L2 models.

As long as you have a ball-bearing model an aluminum spool should work.

Here are a few photos showing the difference between the older bushing 9/0's, and the newer ball-bearing models:

The spool shaft is a lot shorter on the bushing model. They can be found with one piece or three piece spools. I have a new member sending me a 9/0 that was his grandfathers.
It is three piece bushing model. I am in search of a bushing one piece spool if anybody has one for this build.

Yes, I remember seeing a one piece spool on the plates with bushings, but I thought the shaft was the same as later models.
Daron, if you have that spool in hand, give me the dimensions and I'll check and see what I have.
I know I do not have the three piece spool, but should have a couple of brass spools somewhere.

I only have one bushing 9/0 and it has the one piece spool. Randy said he has one, but it is full of line and he is not sure.
I will find it and send you the dimensions.
I can use the one I have, but then the reel will be useless.

I just found mine, I have two new in box aluminum and brass, but the shaft is the same length. I would grab Randy's, as long as it doesn't have a wobble. Those are going to be hard to find, unless you buy a complete reel on line. Undecided
