Shimano C3000 spool on 2500 Body

Similiar - Except the color
After a month's wait, my Alivio C3000 spool have arrived and collected. This spool is to be fitted on my recently acquired Aernos FA2500 body. Although the Aernos comes with a spare spool already, I prefer to use a C3000 spool for my noodle rod application giving me a tad more line capacity should I needed it.

As the Aernos FA does not comes in C3000 size, thus I need to order the C3000 spool from another reel model, I choose the Alivio as it is the cheapest available I think. So how does it fits? In terms of functionality it fits like a glove, of course the color does not match. As long as it serve it's function, look doesn't really bother me.

Fits Perfectly
So here it is, the reel I will be using for my noodle rod application.

the drag knob fits both spools? like are they both same size or the c3000 has smaller diameter than the 2500?

Terence said...

Thanks for sharing your findings, can share how much did the Alivio spool cost?

Daryl Q said...

Yes, the drag knob fits like a glove. In fact it fits all of my 2500 sized Shimano reels.

The Alivio spool cost SGD14, which is actually the RRP as well. On the package it is stated 800yen, after conversion it is around the price i paid for.

i saw that you have a schematics for the tica cetus.

I'm trying to service the reel but i'm stuck at how to remove the rotor.

I have removed the rotor nut, the shaft but still the rotor won't budge.

Should i remove the rotor retainer?
Is here something else that's holding the rotor to the body?

Thanks.

Daryl Q said...

Hi Jeto, i do not think. Sometimes it is the area around the shaft at the rotor at twisted, as it is plastic basically. Use a bit more force to twist it loose.

Hi this is great info, do you think I could use this spool on my Aernos 3000sfa? I bought this size in error not knowing it has a shallow spool. Also would a Aernos 2500 spool fit my size reel? Thanks
