· Mother Nature's Son
I was curious to see how many people own Adventure series reels and what percentage of people have had issues with the bearings. I haven't had issues yet but also haven't used them that much. I have heard some ugly rumors though... Apparently the bearings aren't stainless steel and will rust. I've also heard that the plastic retainer that holds the bearings has a tendency to melt down under heavy loads. Has anybody heard of this?
