Anyone try the Yumeya shallow spool in the Bantam?

I wonder if it comes with the bearing in the spool....
The Bantam has a bearing in the spool? Brian.

Re: Aftermarket handles

Hawgtech makes a decent, reasonably priced handle with different accent color options, even cork knobs. Brian.

Re: TRANX 300 HG Handle Play

The only thing the handle nut does is hold the handle on. The play is from the slop in your base bearing to the retainer plate. Brian.

I have Curado K HG's on my 853 and 854. They fish extremely well and balances the rods out nicely. Brian.

Curado K Spool

Does anyone know if the K is compatible with any other spools in the Shimano line? I need an extra spool and am striking out. Thanks, Brian.
