As far as I could tell there was no dimpling or any signs of unusual wear. I have been using this reel for quite some time without a problem. The pinion shaft was fine, no signs of wear in the CCC, I thought for sure I would see the spacers in a cup shape, but they were flat. I'm not a reel tech, so i will find out if the fix works next time out.
