Review Hp Reel Bearings Abec 7
Posted April 30 2012 - 01:44 AM
Dislikes: They are very noisy at first but seem to be getting quieter with use. The bearings are not shielded.
Likes: They are much smoother than the factory bearings. They will cast farther than the factory bearings and take alot less effort to get the bait out there.
I've only had these for about a week. Been out fishing 3 times so far. I have to make sure I have the reel adjusted for the bait and use good thumb control or I wind up with some overrun. I've had a couple nasty backlashes that I contribute to a learning curve with them! All in all I'm really happy with the purchase for the money I spent. The biggest drawback to me is that the bearings are not shielded. This may not make any difference in the performance of the bearings. However I'm sure they will require more attention and cleaning care than normal. That's ok with me because I like to take my reels apart and clean them more than I probably should anyways.
edit: I did this upgrade on a 4 year old revo sx
