I agree with several others about just use as is with some grease or wax on it, but you gotta test it to see if it's gonna nick your line, first. How to? I own't know for sure. Pull alla line off under drag pressure?

Fishing tackle is an art form and all fish caught on the right tackle are"Gfish"!

Old timers always taught me to test spools and rod line guides for burrs or nicks this way —

Soak the spool with vinegar overnight to arrest and stop the corrosive action of the Verdigris.

Spin the spool in the reel by hand — or hooked up to a line winder machine.

Apply 600 grit emory paper to the spool to smooth out any rough craters.

Clean the spool in warm water, dry it completely.

Use a woman’s stocking to run it over the spool to detect if there are any places that might catch the line.

This also works on rod line guides.

Best,

Fred

Patience...and the rewards that come with it -- need to be experienced...otherwise, it isn't patience!


What's the difference between a worthwhile plan and a vision?

Your good, worthwhile  plan will always keep changing...However, a good vision will always remain constant and unchanging...

A soak in white vinegar will get rid of the corrosion that's deep in the pits. Then a coat of clear lacquer from a rattle can & then wax it with a paste wax not a liquid polish. JMO

I already soaked it in CLR, cleaned it up pretty good.  I think I'll give the spray lacquer a try on my spare spool

Easier than that, use an old pair of pantyhose, they will catch on almost anything.

For the uninitiated, stocking and pantyhose are very similar garments.

Clean it up, test as described above, and fish it.....or replace......this is a workhorse reel and "pretty" does not catch any more fish....JMO.   Bill

  You gotta look at it like this...the spool is already hit...what do you have to loose? Sand it well with 320-600 and spray on a quality paint. If it comes off then pursue other options, but I gotta tell ya, I sprayed this 3/0N spool a few years ago and it's been fished a few times with no loss. It was aluminum though, maybe that works better? Cool

Make an investment . . . Get a better spool and spare parts, too.

   Here's what I used. I've painted two reels, a set of Newell bars, that spool,  and still have half a can of paint. For six bucks! Cool

   All I did was wash the spool with soap and water, then wet sand with 320. Then wiped completely clean with alcohol and a cotton ball. Just two coats...about a half hour apart.
