Unfortunately you don't say where you are. My local tackle shop repairs reels so I will check with him sometime this week and get back to you.
Cheers

Flea Bay is the way to go for parts, even if you buy an old one that still works you will get it for cheap enough, probably cheeper than a spool from a dealer?

Glad to see someone using the old and trusted gear rather than going out buying new just to gain a few more yards or buying cheaply knowing too well that it is likely to fail within 12 months.

I myself have quite a bit of the old gear that I won't part with such as a brand new Mitchell 624 still in it's box! also 4 Intrepid Seastreaks nickname (The Screamers) as well as several Penn boat reels. I can see why you want to repair them as although quite old, were trusted to last and gave good service and were capable of taking abuse.

I will know tomorrow if I can get you a spool for your reel.
Cheers

I love useing my old reels, i know them well. i have also got a seastreak that i use now and again and a shakespeare sigma multiplier. being a single dad with 3 girls its not easy to find 50-100 quid for new reels . i may add that i have taught 2 of my girls to fish and are often with me when i go fishing , :((
