studio ocean mark itself sell an upgrade for this reel, which is a piece of angular bearing and cork drag, which will cost around 100 bucks,

the drag disks on all their reels are made of aluminum... it matches well with the cork washers they use. angular contact bearing is a nice thing to have if you push the drag hard on your reels.

Alan I realize this is an older post, and I think you may have covered the reasoning on removing the seals from the bearings before. My question is. Do you feel that this may cause a problem down the road for infiltration of sand or salt water? I can see how it gives the service person better access to grease the bearings, but I wonder if over time from the bearing spinning and working the grease out; Could this become a problem?
