The Brass Pinion Gear acts as a sacrificial material, as a Stainless Steel Pinion Gears rub on the axle which in some cases can cause burrs and can result in the locking-up of the spool due to the lack of lubrication. Brass is self lubricating and also a softer material than Stainless Steel. The Stainless Steel main gear is hard wearing and longer lasting than the brass gear.
