Question: The custom side plates made by Cortez Conversions, and the one-piece Pro-Challenger frames have ball bearings on the spool spindle,  but use the standard spools that work with the bushing reels (500 501) correct?    

Yeah. I've only had one issue when goin that route and it hada do with the aftermarket pinion needing to be reamed out a tiny bit, but yeah, the old metal spool fit perfect into the aftermarket ball bearings.

Don't Know why the HS reels are built with the plates so deep(wide between the spool shaft ends). Maybe more $ for people to spend on specialized spools...? Its gotta be that the ball bearings need more space in the plates.

Thanks for sharing that Gfish, thats a very nice collection. I started out  my conventional reel fishing with the Jigmasters and Squidder line. Brings back good memories!

Yeah but.... a 259 tail plate on a 500.  Got a couple 110 Senator tail plates on some other 500s  I have pressed 29L-506 spool drive spindles into Newell 501 spools to save a couple grammes casting weight.  I really dig all Jigmaster variants.  Nice write-up.
