On some older 200M reels: It has come to our attention that there was an older run of 200M reels that have the 98-60 gear sleeve on them instead of the 98-155 gear sleeve. Check the diameter of the ratchet from point to point:
98-60 = 7.5/10 in.
98-155 = 6/10 in.
At some time in the past the spindle on the bridge had a smaller diameter (0.125 or 1/8") and the sleeves had smaller holes.
Tani Sleeve Generation Notes
There were 2 generations of the Alan Tani SS sleeves.
ORIGINAL - Cut to the same design as the Penn sleeves, uses standard #4 washer under the gear.
2nd Gen - This is cut all the way down to the ratchet on each side, allowing for the use of the Bryan Young custom washer sets. Set to match this 2nd Gen sleeve: Not currently offered.
