No difference just cosmetic. Idyal purpose. As you said to differentiate spools of line and to give people a choice of looks for their preferred setup

Just been looking at my newly purchased Ultegra 5500's and noticed the main spool has a silver lip, yet the spare doesn't it's all black.

Anyone know why, is it penny pinching on Shimano's part, is it to differentiate between different line strengths, does one work better with heavier lines?

Or maybe there's another reason I haven't considered.
