Custom drive shaft with ball bearing in the base portion. This bearing supports the bulk of the load imposed on the drive shaft as the handle is turned under pressure. Outer portion of the drive shaft is supported by an Instant Anti Reverse bearing (newer models), a ball bearing, or bushing that is existing on your reel now.We bore the drive shaft inside so only the bearing at the base and the very inside end of the shaft are touching the brake plate spindle. This ensures friction is minimized allowing the bearings to do their job.Available in Left or Right hand models. Bearing choice is Stainless Steel or Ceramic Hybrid upgraded bearing.
Drive shaft original part numbers: Right Hand #22079, Left Hand #22081

Smooth and flawless bearings. I love them
This not only make retrieve seem smoother, it almost seems to smooth out the drag even more. Having Carbontex Drags, I didn't expect it, but definitely a welcome surprise. Definitely will order more of these.
Will use more future parts when needed
Seems to lessen the effort when reeling in, glad I got it!
After installing the reels felt smoother under load, while reeling in. Gonna order more for my other reels. Go for the ceramic option....it runs really nice!
Affordable and done nicely. Upon fixing you can feel smooth retrieval.
