Hi

I have been given some fishing tackle in a bag and one item is a Baitrunner AEro GT 6010 XT-7. This is different from the two 6010s I have. My ones have black spool with a chrome lip as well as a plain black spare. These spools are marded 5-8. This one (XT-7) has an spool marked "6000" with the base being chome finish too. I'm not sure if these are the right spools and if I use them if they could be unreliable on this reel. Can anyone give me some advice please?

Thanks

Willie

Hi. Well I asked the question almost exactly 6 years ago then disappeared forgetting all about it. I only found this site again today in my favourites having changed browsers. Please accept a belated "thank you" for your help and apologies for my extremely tardy reply  :)

How did the reel work out for you?

I have some Shimano Quickfire reels in my Shimano junk reels box that are labeled XT-7 but they may not be your identical reel.
