Okay guys,

 I am a machinist that makes medical parts out of aluminum, brass, stainless, and polymers.
When machining polymers the tool life is greatly diminished and holding tolerances is harder to do. Polymers vary in different temperatures. If you hold them in your hand for a minute " ya just 60 seconds " they will expand up to .010" in size.
Imagine on a hot summer day on the deck.
Polymers are very abrasive.And how much is that polymer eating the metal around it.I don't think a moving part like the pawl should ever be made out of a polymer.

Now Mike says that he has not seen any problems so far but let some sand or foreign material get in that pawl and your day will soon be done. Polymers are soft enough to let foreign matter dig into them and on a part that is in the open it will happen sooner or later.

Zippy I'm not one for or against the poly stuff. But put some sand or debris in a metal system and it's going down too. Most of worm gears are chrome plated brass with steel or other hard alloy pawls. It doesn't take but a split second to destroy a brass worm gear.

My thought is that they are about equal. Time will tell how many time we can disassemble them before the C-clip no longer works.

A pawl and worm gear are also not what I'd call "precision" manufactured to begin with. They're probably built to the sloppiest tolerances of any other parts in the whole reel. Take any bait caster on the market and fiddle the line guide with your fingertip, they all have some play in them. Some more than others, and maybe when you get up into the $500+ reels it disappears, but I'll never know. No "normal" reel that the average joe could hope to own some day is immune to it.
