you can go to Boca on line and order them. at one time they offered a guide on what bearings they had for what reels. to be honest, id forget about new bearings and send the reel in for service, when you get it back it wont feel anything like what you had.

I use alot of PATRIARCH reels, I replaced one of the reel stock bearings with ABEC9 9 Ceramic bearings and maybe gain 2 ft if that, clean the stock bearings in acetone and reoil with Hot Sauce Oil.

Boca's list is not up to date.  I need a line roller bearing for a stradic 4000fi, this bearing rusting out is very common in saltwater.  hard to believe but Shimano does not have this bearing in stock and it's on backorder until Feb.

I talked to Boca and they will match the bearing if you have the correct measurements, in my case I'm 5 minutes away from them so I just take the bearing into them for a match.

Doubtful a reel that new needs bearings. Swapping bearings without a proper cleaning will not yield full results anyway. Have it professionally serviced and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

If you'd like to send it in, BassResource.com Members get a 10% discount on parts & labor.

If you send them their bearing model # and the part# and reel model that it replaces, their list will get better. They can't possibly get to measuring bearings for every reel. All you need is a $10 set of calipers to measure bearings.
