    So I have an 2008 stella but can I use the 2013 Stella spool or aftermarket spool?

    If you want to use any spools made for 2013 Stella on your 08 model, you'll have to change your spool support washers with the ones from 2013 Stella.

    Is it just a particular washer from the 2013 spool or is it all the washers from the 2013 spool?

    All the spool support washers from the 2013 model. These washers are not the ones inside the spool. These are the ones on the shaft that the spool sits on. Part numbers 15779 & 15780.

    Good question. The info I've given the OP applies to 8 & 10K SW.

    Not sure about 18 & 20K as I've read somewhere that the SWB spools in these sizes were bottoming out and hitting the rotors of the SW reels.

    Shimano discontinued the washers any place else you can get them and do you have to put the old washers back on the 08 when you use the original 08 spool ?
