Has anyone any experience of using the "New Marquis" spare spools on original Hardy Marquis salmon reels?

I still use the original (football rattle) Marquis reels and could do with a couple of spare spools. I keep looking at new reels, but as a Yorkshireman brought up in Scotland my DNA seems to stop me from actually buying them!

I bought a new spool from the forum for my Marquis 3 and have to say I much prefer the originals. The new ones don't have the brass bush inside the spool and I think the idea of using the softer metal was to cushion slightly and not wear the spindle (could be wrong) but I just think they are made to price and not what they were, the old spools feel better to me.
