I bought the spool to carry a sinking tip line, the original spool has a floating line. This reel allows for a very quick and easy change of spools; just a few turns of a knob and the switch is done, even while wading a stream.
Also, the #2 reel itself is light enough that I use it for a 6 weight rod, but it could go on a 4 weight and be balanced..so a spool for $120 beats the price of another top end reel.

by Greenghost Spare spool a valuable necessity.
Just received a spare spool, fast sinking line, and backing from LL Bean for my Silver Ghost fly rod......always a good idea to have the ability to make a quick change from floating line to sinking line when the conditions warrant it. Remember that about 80-90% of fish feeding time is below the surface of the water....don't miss out on that opportunity.
