When replacing the bobbin bearing, it makes sense to use a Tools to be used to reliably remove the coil shaft pin.
There are professional tools for this, such as the Spool Bearing Pin Remover Type R by Hedgehog Studio.
Particularly with manufacturers such as Abu Garcia, Lew's, Daiwa, or Quantum, a special tool is required to remove the pin.
Note: The spool shaft pin is not attached to Shimano reels, so the remover is not required in most cases.
With the Remover Type R you can easily and safely remove the coil shaft pin.
The cross wrench is made of high-strength stainless steel.
The key length and screw piece are designed to provide even and secure pressure on the pin.
This pushes it cleanly out of the spool without bending or scratching.
