Same here. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.bassresource" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.bassresource</a><!-- m --> itself does not work. Seems like there server is down or something along the route. Try again later.
Rippie, yours might work because you already loaded the page in your browser so it is in your cache, or you are using a different route to the server.

I think we all know what a standard all steel bearing is and how it works. for all good intent and purposes, most reel bearings are miniature bearings and which you will normally battle to obtain just off the street ex stock and at a hell of a cost, pound for pound comparable with larger bearings.

Yes, Boca ceramic bearings are the best but you pay for what you get! There are other options as well such as Polymer bearings. herewith two fact sheets on Polymer and hybrid (Ceramic) bearings from SKF Bearings:

Another very interesting article with some different perspectives:

A typical bearing placement in a mid range reel. In this case I used a Shimano Caenan schematic as an example. Older reels will have more bushes in place of bearings (which can be upgraded to bearings....) and higher end reels might have more bearings such as two on the driveshaft, on the level wind and other which doesn't necessarily mean a smoother ride. A quality reel can become a problem reel due to abuse and lack of maintenance and care.

I was sent this link to a fishing reel repair forum. The amount of info available appears mind boggling. Just sharing for like minded folk.

I've used his site numerous times to get info on reel problems, feedback etc - I must say the response from Alan & other fisherman around the world is quick & quite amazing!
Never to old to learn on their website!
