Spare spools from any of the high quality manufacturers is usually 50% of the price of the reel Derek.
I'm guessing it will be that.

Cheers

Nice reels, not too expensive either and a bit different from what’s normally found in the shops.

Next reel I get is going to be a bright colour I think, love the red.

I also like the lime green on the Hydros SL.

It's a nice looking reel , but my dream was for a Dormisch Abse, but at the price a distant one,  :z12 Derek Roxborough

No spares listed on the Vossler site for this range unfortunately. Other spools are as you say, about 50%.
