I have attempted to source through Shimano and several of the reel part shops I frequent but thus far I have been unable to find this part. I recently had the bail wire come out of the roller side of the assembly and I am in need of a replacement. It is epoxied for now, but I don't think there is much to grip.

The part is - RD 10885 BAIL ASSMBLY. Any chance someone has Shimano parts stockpiled from the mid to late 2000's?

Hi Redfish!

I likely have the part -- but the parts on hand are not numbered -- so it would need to be a bench match.

Also have 600+ pounds of NOS Shimano parts from the 80's & 90's -- but they are boxed and slated to be sold.

A good friend of mine, Mat Hegy from back in Wisconsin -- shows in stock for that part.

Here is the information.

Mat is first class all the way.

Best,

Fred

Self-worth is how you value yourself. It’s not based on what others think of you or the things you have (or haven’t) accomplished—it comes from within. But it’s easy to forget that our worth isn’t determined by outside forces -- each of us sets our own price.

In life, be flexible, willing to listen to others, willing to change your mind based on your good judgement -- that is how progress is made, and new horizons are discovered.  When the winds of change blow -- A flexible limb moves and thrives -- a stiff and stubborn limb just snaps.

funny, I just happen to have a StradiSymeHara I clobbered together, LOL

sorry, only 2 bails for 3 rotors  Sad


all 3000 AND 2500 Sahara FD, Symetre FJ, Stradic FH, Stradic FI (prob. more later cheaper models)

use IDENTICAL rotors (aside from cosmetics)…  bail-heads & colors are different -- hence, different part #'s

if the individual bail doesn't quite fit, you move bail+arm…  or, entire rotor

for-parts reels w/ gear issues, should be cheaper than new bail

go for the 2500-size for spool variety

same as 3000, but bigger arbor / bigger drag / smaller line capacity

P.S.,

your main gear has a bearing on one side & same-size plastic bushing on the other

a donor reel will allow you to swap in another bearing -- smoother, stronger, more stable

(that's the only significant difference, between Sahara FD & Symetre FJ)

if someone has a bail for you, they probably have that bearing as well

it's the most common size: RD8553, RD0930, RD13241, RD10320, BR0047
