I own' t know. Bought a new TLD 15 in '14 and it came with a nice clamp.
In the above post, I 's thinkin mainly bout the "vintage" reels section of the "-Bay" and mostly Penns.

Here's my new/old 3GT on a new Okuma Cortez 701HA rod I got for $58.

I got over 20# of drag off the reel with spring scale but that was with the star really buttoned.  Strung up with a bend on this rod feels good even at high drag settings but not totally maxed.  BTW, this Cortez rod kinda feels like a Phenix PSW 700H, not bad absent aluminum reelseat. Another picture:

I have 20 of the 20/40 reels in the shop from a charter boat. Every one of them needs a new drive shaft bushing. I hope Shimano has enough.

I own 3 myself but have never used them. They seem to be bullet proof.

So Keith, are those drive shaft bushings prone to failure or were these reels subjected to extreme abuse and/or lack of maintenance?

Won't the Trinidad drive shaft bearing fit if you can't find bushings?

Tearing down and cleaning/upgrading  a 15/30. Any updates on these bushings? Would TSI301 treatment, and then some grease improve durability?

These reels have been rode way too hard over the years. The gears are fine. 8 of them the hole in the frame for the drive shaft bushing has gotten too large.

Your reels will be fine. When assembled the drive shaft bearing keeps the drive shaft stable.

Here is a picture of the worn out parts.

i thought they came without clamps....   Undecided


You are correct Alan. They do come without clamps. I use Torium clamps and Penn clamps on mine.
