   I tore the reel down today, and it has a lot of strengths, but the gear sleeve is a stumbling block. It's an odd size...like 13 thousands of an inch bigger diameter than a #98-60. So...no steel sleeve is available. Although the rest of the drive train is up to making high drag numbers, that brass gear sleeve might ruin a power trip...HA! No worries for me though...as I'd likely be fishing the reel at around 10 lbs. drag. Also, this reel looks like it would be easy to double dog. It has the bridge mounted dog. Love this big heavy moly steel main.Cool

I might be wrong but without outer rings I think they made them to hold a large amount of relatively light line for sailfish. I've caught a few and it was kinda of like a carp that jumps around alot. They're fun on light gear but don't pull that hard when they get tired. Really pretty fish and I think that reel in good order would be a great sailfish reel but I think there's just too many "weak Links" to push it too far.

 Yep, the sailfisher has it's own part# for the star adjuster, and it won't fit any other reel. The bigger gear will get you decent drag #'s and the factory sleeve should handle 15# without any issues.

You can catch a pretty big fish  with 500+ yards of 50lb braid, 30or50lb topshot and 12-15lbs of drag.

 Solid little reels.
 
I would love to live bait a small Striped Marlin on one spooled with straight 20lb mono sometime, just for some nostalgic light-tackle fun.
