Here is the bigger brother but same theory.

And a v40 next to a jigmaster 501.

You'll love it.  Notice the resemblance in the knobs.

Was wondering, what is the difference , V50 vs v52 ?

It's a bit confusing but my understanding is the V50 is a Vengeance and the V52 is a Violator.  The Violator series had an extra ball bearing somewhere.

I was getting ready to go for one of these but now it's unlikely. A plastic clicker pawl? I use the clicker alot in pier fishing, need a good one. And what about using a C clip to hold the gear shaft? Hmmm...Huh? Were the old (USA) ones held that way too?

You are correct sir, I just took a look at some Shimanos, I guess that's not such a bad thing. I never noticed it since I'm not much into them.

I might be mistaken, but if that clip comes off, wouldn't the handle fall off?

If the gear shaft is held on by a 'C' clip then the gear can wobble a bit unless you have really good support on the outboard end of the shaft.  A needle AR bearing will do the job nicely.  The Ryobi V-Mag 3 has a 'C' clip holding the gear shaft and only a spacer riding inside a brass bushing for outboard support.  A tight tolerance between spacer and bushing is critical to prevent wobble, but that was/is the reel's Achilles heel.  A salt crystal or grain of salt between the spacer and bushing will lock up the handle.

I love small conventional reels and had no idea the Pro Gear was that size.  Thank you for sharing Marc.
