Shimano cardiff 100A gear problems

Postby Tankmurdock » Mon Apr 16, 2012 5:06 pm

I have 3been shimano cardiffs 100A's i purchased a year ago brand new. One of them i use for spinnerbaits and gets used about twice a week. I fish the fool out of it and i break it down every month for cleaning greasing and oiling. I ue only shimano products and i keep reel covers on them. It started making a grindinf fuss last month and u could feel it on retrieve. Checked the bearing and i ending up having to replace the gears. Is that normal for the gears to wear out in a year?
