Hello Noodle, If you look at the schematics you'll see that the 300 C model has two bearings in it . One in the rotor and one in the side plate for the handle. There may be some smaller differences but the bearings are the main thing. Regards , John in Pa. :sCh_fisherman:

The 300C does have bearings as Oscillator 1 mentioned, and the later versions have a redesigned bail with a roller line guide.
The handle on the 300C reels is a little different too. The knuckle on the standard 300 handle is round and smooth. The knuckle on the 300C has a flat face with a red decal that has the design of a fish on it. It also has a chrome dust cap.

The are a couple variations of the 300A reels. The first version
is very similar to the 300 but they made several changes on
the second version. The most obvious is the redesigned housing which is supposed to be stronger. You can easily tell the difference
because the lines where the foot attaches to the housing are blended and smoother looking. The second version also has a different bail and has a roller line guide.
The 300A gearing is different than the 300 and 300C, and some
of them have a silent anti-reverse.
The 300A reels all have a band that goes around the rotating head that has line capacities on it, and they also have a thin plastic gasket that goes between the side plate and the housing.

is there anything in the belief over here that the A models are more prone to failure due to poor gearing?
