    Hey Bro,I bet that paw would be smooth but I think if you got sand or dirt in there that dude would snap like a toothpick.Might be good for a boat fisherman???

    I don't think that ceramic pawl would break if you got sand in it, often times ceramic can be harder and tougher then metal. with this pawl I'd be more worried about tearing up My wormgear or worse yet the gears inside the reel. I was always told the pawl was designed to fail for two reasons, it is a cheap easy to replace item and it protects the more expensive harder to service gears inside the reel. If a peice of sand or other debris gets into the wormgear something has to give. I would just stick with the stock pawls.

    I order them 6 at a time and I fish from a boat.

    If you fish in a clean environment then these would be OK, But I would be afraid it would wear my worm gear out and they cost a lot more to replace. It would last a lot longer than the stock pawl, but the pawl is designed to wear out to protect the worm gear. I am like the other guys, stick with the stock pawl.
