Is there anything wrong with Speedtech spools? You can get them at a much lower cost and they last forever. I am still running the same spool from way before last year's Reedy Race and this is run almost every week with mostly mod motors of 8 turns or less with minimal wear. You can call Steve and ask if he can speak with the machinist to create a batch of uber lightweight stuff if you wish. Or if you're privy to some Tamiya Aluminum Blue prototypes, run those but they won't last long at all hehe. For my money, Speedtech's Troy-Built spools are da bomb.

Seems like a lot of hoops to jump though for some trick stuff that'll get tore up

Default Local made spool

There is someone making spool here locally, I haven't try it myself (well, my 415 hasn't arrive yet..) so I don't know if the workmanship good, or is it durable. But it's made in aluminum and hard anodized, weight 11.2g. I will try it after I get my 415.

Do a Yahoo TW bid search with keyword "TRF415", you should able to find it Jeffrey.

Well, it doesn't availiable elsewhere, so rest of people can skip trying to find it on eBay.

These spools should last as long as the speedtech ones, you'll just have to switch out the blades on the drive pins. Reasons I like them is because they are lighter, dont rust if you remove all that gunky packaging lube stuff, and will just look trick since only 10 of this kind are bieng done

Here is the link:

Walawala Ebay store

Be careful...I seem to spend at least $100.00 there a week

A very dangerous link!!
