ZPI and Bassart for the handles and grips. Spool upgrades by ZPI and IZE. Bearing upgrades for the reel and handles and grips. Before you know it, that $200.00 reel will be a $400.00 reel. :)

Zip Sic bearings are good but expensive. I can't tell the difference between them and the ceramic ABEC 5 on sale by http://www.smoothdrag.com/price.html at 1/2 a price.

There is not a ZIP spool for the Fuego.

If you don't want to pay the price of Bassart and ZIP handles, the TD-Z handle will fit it, with 4 ball bearings, lighter and 1/2 a price.

I have a Tuned Fuego. All the bearings are Ceramic, TDZ handle with Bearings, TDZ Line Pawl, Carbontex Drag Washers. Very nice reel.
