i just finished cracking open a regular saltiga spinner. it was actually pretty simple inside. very nice reel! if you need the bail roller bearing, you can get one at bocabearings.com if you can measure it out with digital calipers. i was able to switch out the stock drag washers for penn ht-100's and cal's grease. worked great! it's really very straight forward. alan
Thanks Alan, there's a local bearing shop that just does bearings, i may do what you said and give it a go. I had the reel open before to clean and grease. Its very solid. I have used carbontex replacement washers in there and it helped, but they are do for replacement again. I will look at the HT drags and try them.
