Do different reel manufacturers share common components? I'm pretty sure the same supplier provides the one-way clutch bearings which are featured in many different makes of reels. The same goes for ball bearings and their races. What about sealed drag units?
I'm old-fashioned enough to resent paying a premium price for a common product.
