I have an old Bass Pro Shops Extreme that I just finished cleaning and relubing. It's all factory, no upgrades, with the exception of adding an additional bearing into each handle knob, making a 9 bearing reel from a factory 7 bearing model. Even these are still factory bearings, and used at that, because I ordered an extra handle in order to get them. So basically you are still seeing a factory reel. I filmed a short video of how slick the bearings are on it after finishing the job.

I do plan to upgrade the drag to carbontex washers soon. I have three more of these, four in all, also all the same except gear ratios, and they all will get the drag upgrade. Total cost will be about $40.

Enjoy!

Got it! It's not the original one I filmed but I was able to use my phone (droid) to get a decent one. This is just factory bearings. It was pretty impressive to me anyway. The brakes are backed off, and the tension knob is just tight enough to stop side to side spool movement, so it is about as loose set as it will go, I admit, but it does demonstrate the free spool abilities of the reel at least. For casting, I do set the mag brake at about 7-8, but I always leave the tension knob set exactly as it is.
