It's not the back play looseness (tangential) but the entire gear sleeve is wobbling, everything moves from side to side, handle, star, nut. Reel was never used much, seems wrong.

   This sounds like normal old run-of-the-mill gear sleeve play. A thin shim washer under the gear sleeve will cure this. Use only enough to take up the extra play...do not get it tight. You'll know why when you turn the handle. Cool

Is there a SS gear speave for this set of reels? A buddy had one that is starting to round off at the top. Probably because he put braid on it when I told him not too☹️

Parts for these reels are pretty exclusive, even the handle post fit and nut is unique to this series. Pretty sure there's not enough interest to generate custom parts like a SS sleeve.

You can still get whole reels and some parts on the "bay" though.

No big deal I can just order a new old stock one. Buddy doesnít seem too interested in using it since itís drag capabilities are rather limited and itís not a great caster. We fish redfish around heavy structures and itís not quite up to task. If I were a drifting fluke fisher or open boat light tackle troller I would love this reel. As is I am not so sure what to do with it??
