I'm finding it hard to find them online. Does anyone know where I could find one either the 7000 or 8000? Does anyone have one they want to sell by any chance lol?
Hope this isn't too obvious an answer but have you tried Shimano direct? I got "unavailable in the UK" reel parts for a 2speed multiplier by contacting their dutch HQ. Weston developments may also make something aftermarket?
Are you speaking from experience of contacting Shimano in Holland or as someone trying to sell on their old reels??? All spools are centreless - they have to be to accept a spindle! The original black and gold Titanos Aerlex GTs had similar wide bore spools, do they interchange with later models?They only had that type of spool upto the XS. A and B are different reels limited life span been out of production years now many liked but Weston wouldnt do as it's a specialist fitment with the lack of centre
