The 965 went through a major design change after approx. 1-2 years into production (right side plate, gears, etc.).  The majority of reels out in the field will have the newer design.  We did make some cosmetic changes over the year as well such as gold aluminum handle blank went to chrome plated brass.

Yes, you would have a trickle down affect to the point you are spending twice the amount on parts then the reel is worth, assuming you would need one of the parts that were changed.

Owned a 965 for around 17 years.  How do I know if it’s the newer generation?  If it’s not, is it worth upgrading?  Also, Was there any modifications to the 975 cs?  Thanks.

  can't do a link, but if you go to mysticparts.com...then international page...then scroll down to the 965's then scroll down the page to the first item which has a red stop sign on it...then look to the right and click on the highlighted 965 design change original to newer housing

that will take you to a page with explanation and excellent photos of the differences
