Does the XB65 also have a Brass Main Gear?

   No, the XB65 had a zinc main. It and the XRL40 did have a brass pinion though. Cool

If you looked on da Bay or another old tackle selling site, is there a way to tell the earlier XB's from the one's with the zinc main gears?
I re-read this'n and liked everything about this reel, especially that main shaft with the big fat spool bushing, but yeah, to be an A, rear shaft support would be needed, IMO. Great write-up and research Mo. Where do you find all these gems?
Of alla big company reels out there, modern Zebco's do "seem" to be more "plasticky" than others. Look what they did to the 33...

   As I remember G...you can't tell a '72 model from a '77...so it's a roll of the dice on getting the brass main. They may have made more from brass than zinc, as all three models I bought had the color. Ebay used to be a great place to find old fishing reels...now it's a great place to overspend on "vintage collectables".
   Also, that shaft is supported directly behind the pinion, so no worries there. Cool
