I believe it's in the bargain cave for the same price as a spare spool.

Well, I know I'm gonna get hammered on this, but I seal new cork with light colored (Pine, etc) Minwax stain - wipe all the excess off. I just use the stain, not any type of finish. I'm over 60 and have done this as long as I can remember, I think it helps bond any filler so I don't get cavities, etc. And the cork does not get hard or slick nor do my older rods have any dried out "ribbed", or rotted cork.

I know it's really against all the rules to do this - but hey I've made my own rods so I figure it's OK to do whatever, they're my rods.

That's exactly right, it's your stuff and it sounds like it's worked for you for a long time. It's all about whatever makes us happy.

There is a need to fish, to be in the water. It soothes the soul...

That's why I bought a reel for the backup 10-weight. It's the size 4' and I currently have it spooled with a Rio Pike/Muskie WF10F line and 450 yards of 30-pound GSP backing.
