Bakelite can both shrink and swell.  It is the wood powder used as filler that absorbs moisture or releases moisture depending on the surrounding relative humidity.  If the shrinking and swelling is dramatic enough the bakelite will crack.  Museums and others that are really serious about preserving bakelite do so by stabilizing the relative humidity.

Yep!, here is some more information on Bakelite, doesn't like humidity or continiously getting wet.
Now I see why Bill runs into so many up his way.

Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

Rings on Penns break for (3) reasons (or a combination of the 3) -- from my experience...

-- Swelling of the Bakelite plates

-- Corrosion weakening the underside of the rings due to salt allowed to remain after fishing

-- Overly aggressive tightening of the frame screws

On the first, if the plates are swollen -- just a few laps around the ring bed takes care of this -- after the rings are reinstalled -- nothing shows anyway.

On number two, this is cured in advance by greasing the underside of the rings and the frame screws with a Marine grease like Yamaha or Penn.

On number three, screws should be tightened snug -- but not over tight -- use a star pattern.

On more than a few occasions -- brand new rings will not fit older sideplates -- not because they are swollen -- but because there is a slight difference in the shape fit.

Just a few things I have noticed over the years.

Best,

Fred

A destination does not lie at the end of your road -- your destination is your road...

I will also add that twisting of the frame could also cause the rings to crack, this is only my speculation.
 I did a 16/0 a while back with all of the screws bent.
That reel had both outer rings cracked by the screw holes, but only one crack each.
