Hi Phil,
I can say some bearings are the same with other makes,
For example, the old Fenwick F89 used the same roller bearing and cage as one of the Shimano overhead game reels,
With most bearings, you can source them from a bearing company, and usually, 1/2 the price,
The other advantage I found in using a bearing company is that they can usually supply marine grade bearings
