I blew out a spool on one of my 285 Delmars.  I'm glad it happened at home, instead of having a fish on.  I need to find a pair of 29L-85 aluminum spools.

There's not alota those out there. Might haveta get 'em from a used reel. I put one on my 2/0 Senator that actually came from a 285(not originally).

I think it is going to be like searching for hens teeth.

   Searching the hundreds of Delmars on eBay should turn up a few. I miss the days when Mystic had any Penn part one needed. Some of these parts are getting scarce.

Also look at Long Beach 60's and Seaboy 85's, though it's hard to tell plastic spools from aluminium by an ebay picture. Probably gotta ask the seller if it looks like it could be one. The Del Mar 285 never came with an aluminum spool so they'er all add-ons.

   Good call G...forgot those two. Also the post '90 Seaboy 185 is a source. This photo I heisted from Bill B. shows how the shoulders differ on the plastic and aluminum spools. Good luck searching! Cool

Or, if there is enough demand Tom H. from Cortez Conversions could make a run of new spools.  He is working on a frame for a Longbeach.  I don't know which model.

   Yeah, definitely a market, and a frame for a Longbeach sounds fantastic! I did an eBay search of Delmars...there were only 66! Wow...there used to be many more...maybe things are finally drying up. And 29L-85 spools were extinct on da Bay. Undecided
