Plastic worm shaft and metal pawl, just like the Curado K.

One other thing i was curious about. This reel has the same gear ratios as the others, so does that mean its got dual supported pinion?

It does not have MicroModule gearing and it does not have X-Ship. It does have Super Free so only one bearing supporting the pinion gear.
