... decided to increase the width of spools from 7/8” to 9/8” when the spool case’s separators are 1” apart :banghd:

 

blue = 7/8”

green = 9/8”

Run a dowel through the center of the case suspending the leader rolls from it. There are cut outs on the leader case just for that.

Thanks hh, missed that whilst throwing my hissy fit :th:

 

No problem. I was halfway through my own hissy fit before I noticed the cutouts.

 

Of course once you put them on a dowel they will free spin so I ended up labeling the leader size on the outside of the leader box and using a large rubber band to secure the leader pulled through the openings and keep it from retracting back into the box. 

 

Then I leave the whole thing at home and only take 3-4 rolls of sizes I am most likely to use. :howdy:

You gotta narrow that down. There are 7.66 billion people in that group.

9/8 is an improper term

I had the same issue, but fixed that by placing a thin strip of open cell foam in the case with the leader running through the foam.

9/8 is an improper term

Using fractions instead of decimals is the only improper part of it
