The stainless steel ball bearings in ABEC 5 quality ensure that your fishing reel runs smoothly!
The set includes two ball bearings, each one in size 3x7x3 mm + 3x7x3 mm.
The High Precision Stainless Steel Bearings ensure that the spool of your baitcaster reel starts up faster and thus higher RPM reached.
With this you can throw lighter baits and achieve a noticeable improvement in Throw range.
What does ABEC mean?
ABEC is a standard that indicates how high the Manufacturing tolerance is.
The higher the number, the higher the precision of the production of the ball bearing and the smoother it runs is it.
The standard is given with odd numbers only.
That means ABEC 3 bearings are on the bottom, followed by ABEC 5 and 7, which are pretty much the most used bearings. They are usually installed as standard.
Why use tuning bearings?
In general, ball bearings that are installed in the reel from the factory often do not have good rotational properties, as there are a lot of bold and Dust prevent smooth running.
The stainless steel ball bearings are delivered already oiled and come with an anti-rubber cover < /span>, which ensures that the bearings are protected from dirt particles. You can remove this cover for cleaning and oiling.
You can also install the ball bearings without a cover, so you can get a little more speed out of the ball bearings because the friction is reduced.
The bearings are oiled as standard, but we recommend every user to oil the ball bearings after a season, preferably with Alchemy Oil from Hedgehog Studio or the Premium Bearing Oil from Glitch Oil.
So you simply get something out of it for longer and don't have to service the ball bearings as often, and the whirring of the ball bearings is significantly reduced when you oil them.
Just a drop of oil in it, that's all it takes, for a long time having fun with it.
