I have a Shimano DL 4000 FA baitrunner, which was updated a few years ago & is now the DL 4000FB. I am trying to find a spare spool for my reel, & unfortunately I am failing big time. According to Shimano, the only difference is the paint job. I have contacted Shimano Repair Centre in Swansea asking if the FB model spool will fit the FA reel, typical of manufactures they've not replied. I have taken my reel to a tackle shop & asked if I could try a FB spool on my reel, to be told that I could not unless I bought the reel.(Really helpful guy). Does anyone know if these spools are the same & will fit. If so I can the purchase the FB spools.
