The excise tax on domestically sold fishing equipment is brutal... Got to protect the US market somehow - you do it with service.
If I called Daiwa and said, "hey I need a drag washer for a Seaborg 1200" they wouldn't sell it to me?
I've ordered parts from them in the past, they never asked where I bought the reel.

Perhaps they won't service it themselves or they won't offer warranty on it, but I don't see them denying a parts purchase over the phone.
