Replacement spool bearings
« on: August 08, 2019, 10:53:16 PM »

Hey guys, so  I am finally deciding to tinker and try upgrading the performance of my kastking royale legend elite 8.1:1 with some new spool bearings - i know boca and spool speed are the most renown however options are limited to the spool speed as far as a 3 pack kit goes. what I'm curious about is would it be a bad idea to put bearings that are meant for RC cars into the reel - yes I know it sounds a little stupid  - however i see that they list them differently; same in size but they have ceramic single metal aura, ceramic open, and a ceramic metal ( all in the proper sizes on the AVID RC site) all input would be appreciated.

Spool Speed and Boca are Chinese bearings sold at huge profit. IMO, junk. You want quality bearings without breaking the bank, hit me up. And you only need to change the 2. 1 on the shaft, and 1 in the palm plate. But you can do the 3 if you like.

Lots of over priced stuff out there... RC bearings are actually where all the R and D comes from for reel bearings. They do the playing and tweaking and then the tech moves over to reels. But to be honest unless you are doing casting distance contests, most of these high tech bearings are more than you need for a reel. A smooth bearing is the most import.
