I seem to be another on of those guys who fell victim to “I got a good deal on a backrest for my Chieftain, but it doesn’t fit”. Pretty sure it is for the Chief. The spools on my Chieftain are too large. Anyone make the same mistake opposite of my problem and want to trade?
Otherwise I am debating modifying the backrest to fit my existing spools. Is this a terrible idea? Or do I just go buy the smaller spools and will this still fit my Chieftain bags?

I did the same as you. I just took a dremmel and ground it down to fit the spools.
can’t even tell with the backrest one
