Fishing Reel Bearings – All You Need To Know

Fishing reel orientation fall into six classifications nowadays: roller heading, metal balls, diary direction, needle course, push course, and tightened heading. Roller and metal balls are the ones normally utilized, so I’ll dive into insight regarding these two.

Alright, most importantly, how about we analyze the “tech specs” of fishing reel heading, especially ball and roller direction. There are two “runway” tracks (in fact called races) that the heading, held set up by an enclosure, slide on while the bearing is turning. To ensure the rollers and the enclosure don’t emerge, there is a round safeguard and a safeguard retainer between the two races. To look at a heading, first jump out the safeguard retainer with a blade with a sharp tip or a needle, being mindful so as not to free it (it behaves like a spring), ball bearing suppliers take the safeguard off.

What about oiling your bearing? You ought to oil them consistently to hold long life and to keep your reel smoother. To start with, you’ll need to clean them. Putting a few WD-40 on it and spotting them on a paper towel or fabric is effective method for making it happen. Whenever you’re finished cleaning it, I would suggest placing drops of oil from an in the middle of between the two races. Make certain to purchase quality oil suggested by your reel producer. I use Quantum Hot Sauce and has worked for me well overall. On the off chance that there is a safeguard and retainer on the bearing, there is normally a little in the middle of between the races, so let the oil in the middle between them. Try not to place a lot in the bearing, several drops will do. Many individuals tragically put to much oil in the bearing which abbreviates its existence and causes the handle to wonder whether or not to uninhibitedly move.


Roller course for fishing reels have chambers, or metal cylinders, which in the middle of between the races. This kind of bearing as a rule takes on low velocities and high loads on the grounds that the roller, or chamber, is moving on a wide race. There is normally only one of these headings in a fishing reel.
