ABEC 5 Ceramic bearing upgrade.

Recommended Posts

i have an older daiwa reel that isnt worth a lot other than the fact that its a 3.8:1. i keep it around for deep cranks. this year i decided to replace the spool bearing and see what difference new bearing would make.

id just like to say.........WOW. set aside the fact the thing casts so much better, now i have 3 times the backlash control.

my cost with shipping was just over $30. id strongly suggest upgrading your older reels you like.

What style did you get?

Full, Hybrid, or Loose Ceramic Balls?

Also Boca Bearing (http://www.bocabearings.com/) has a good selection of ball bearings for fishing reels.

About 5 years ago I ordered a kit with 2 BB for my Shimano Citica 201B, less than $20, and I upgrade my reel, it feels better than Curado B, almost as BSF, best money I spent!!!

im getting ready to do another up-grade. its either going to be the greatest thing ever or the biggest waste of money.

The best deal going on Shimano upgrade kits is at www.biggreenfish.com.  His bearings are best described as ABEC 7+ they are that good.
