For 2.0 MegaMouth reels: Ensure uninterrupted bowfishing adventures by keeping an ample supply of extra line readily available in your boat. With the custom line spool designed for 2.0 MegaMouth reels, you can effortlessly swap out your old spool, reassemble the reel, and be fully prepared to continue shooting fish. It’s important to note that this line spool is exclusively compatible with the 2.0 MegaMouth reel model.
Identifying the compatibility of your reel is straightforward. Look for the “2.0” marking near the logo on the outer cone of the reel to confirm that it is a 2.0 model. Reels without this marking are considered the original version. Alternatively, you can remove the front assembly and check the type of bearing present. A brass bearing indicates a 2.0 reel, while a steel and black bearing indicate the original version.
