Abo Record 60. Can it be made HC?

Yeah, I figured if the 6500 spool would fit the 60, and HC spool would as well. I can get a Record 60 for really cheap, and wanted to be sure a HC size spool would fit. Thanks.

I would think so, but what is the difference in the spools? Is the HC spool just thinner in the center so it can hold more string? I would have to see the 2 reels side by side.

Thats the problem, I cant compare the regular 60 and the 60HC side by side. I dont know if the 60HC is a totally different reel, or if the only difference from the regular 60 is the spool.

Thanks, I appreciate it.

If you can't compare reels side by side, compare the schematics side by side. Easy as pie. Looks like the same reel w/ different spools and handles

^^ THANK YOU!highfive.gif

I was trying to compare spool sizes, but I couldnt find the part numbers for the 60 and HC60. I never thought of comparing the frames, and from your schematic, they are the same frame. Thanks, I appreciate it.

Looks ok to swap out. Can't believe the 60 is just a wiffle spoolheadscratch.gif

yeah, it dosnt make much since to have a reel as heavy and wide as a 6500 but only hold 145/14, thats like a 4500-5000 sizeconfused.gif Anyway, Im glad they can be swapped out. Thanks everyone for the info.

Hello, I am new here and I would like to thank everyone for all the good information that I have learned here. I swapped the spools from a 6501 c4 with a Record 61 and it worked good. One thing though the Record axle is a larger diameter on the handle side and necks down again. The bore diameter for the pinion is larger on the Record. Thanks again for all the information
