bought a 706z about a month and a half ago, was getting a scraping sound from the line roller. took it out, bearing was silent, looking closely at the rotor arm, the hole for the roller stud was off center, (1/16th inch) allowing the roller to scrape the side of the recess a bit. sent the reel to penn, they replaced the rotor cup and shipped it back in 12 days. neat! so, since i really like these reels, i ordered one from west marine, since they were the only place i could find with any in stock. this one is almost perfect, just has a 704z decal on the side plate. it's more funny than it is a problem. i'll get one from mystic next time i order from them. is penn getting a little "off" down there in philly, or it just me? could be me, i'm a little off center to start with  Smiley

The two I have are two bearing reels. One on the pinion and one on the main gear shaft.

The line roller bearing is expensive. The inner race is longer than the outer.
