I used to know it all---but now that I'm older I seem to forget it all.

I have the Adventure 5 for 5wt line. Had the bearing replaced once. Got sand in it and went down to the water to wash it out and when I went to put it together it wobbled. Lost the bearing. The housing for the bearing is plastic,the retainer is plastic. the only metel is the bearing and the screw holding it in place. Now when ever I'm near sand I make sure that the reel is a long way from it. For some reason this reel seems to just like sand. I just feel that this reel needs to be handled with kid gloves. Not paws like I seem to have.
