Boca Orange Seals On A Lews Tp

Recommended Posts

is it worth the $$$$

since the lews TP takes 3 bearings looking at $75 per reel, anyone think it is worth it??

making it $25 cheaper than I thought only makes the bearing monkey scream louder, LOL.

Truthfully a guy only needs to upgrade the two spool bearings, the one under the tension cap actually has very little effect on casting in reels of this design. If a guy does that it makes it very affordable, somewhere in the neighborhood of $35 dollars.

plus i believe they could be even cheaper if you get them via DVT...

i'm not sure why the lews has a 3 piece kit...i've only gotten them for my e7's which are in a 2 pack/kit just for the spool bearings...so very well could be something different with the lews design i'm not aware of and why they have 3 in the kit...as mentioned a person only really needs the 2 spool bearings...i love the ceramics hybrids and i take/leave the orange seals off myself since i clean my reels a lot during the season...

DVT is Delaware Valley Tacke?

Yes...

Mike supertuned a Curado 50E and my 200E with ceramic bearings "dry".

Although the performance was great, I didn't like the noise. I added Shimano

oil which eliminated the noise.

It varies by reel Mfg. and the particular reel being upgraded. If you have a reel that you are curious about, I am sure there are several members here who can offer a reliable opinion.
