Yeah. Or really any bearing more capable than the stock bearing.

Problem is that I don't want to buy a bearing just to try it out.

Maybe I will try it out, half millimeter thickness shouldn't make a difference as long as the ID and OD match up.

Spool Bearing Question

Does the width of the bearing matter?

I need a 3x7x2.5 bearing for my Avail 16ALD15 spool.

Could I use a 3x7x3 bearing? I am not able to find any BFS bearings that are 3x7x2.5.

Thanks.

Re: Edge Rods

They are a small company that have mega sale to stimulate business and maybe need to get cash for whatever reason. The wait times are long but, worth it. Quality products and some sick deals. 65 percent off!!!. For me, it's worth the wait. They also plan to expand as well. They have 1 customer servi...

BFS bearing 4x7x2.5 (Shimano knob size)

I have an Avail 16ALD15 BFS spool. The bearing on the shaft of the spool is the same size as the Shimano knob bearing. Are their any BFS bearings out there this size? Was thinking maybe the Hedgehog AIR BFS inner bearing on some sizes may work.

My blanks are still sitting waiting to be built... I ordered a couple NFC carbon fiber grips almost two months ago and still waiting...

I ordered a pair of MB-736 blanks on Aug 14th. Hopefully I get them before Thanksgiving.


What techniques and lure size you plan on using them for?

Re: Scrimless NFC

I still have not received mine. Just sent them an email today, although I would not expect to hear back until Tuesday at the earliest. I really don't mind waiting as was not going to build until winter, but would like more communication. They have 1 CS person and get about 300 emails and 200 calls ...

Re: Help making a 2 piece rod

How long does the male piece go into the blank? I'm not at all familiar with the rod but my rule of thumb for ferrule construction is the overlap should be 6 times the diameter of the blank at the connection. Thanks for the response. Blank is just over half inch so, should be good. Would the same r...

Help making a 2 piece rod

I am looking to make a 2 piece rod where the connection is at the handle like the Megabass X7 or many other JDM rods. I will be looking to connect a flipping blank to a handle. The blank is 7 ft 6in. I am guessing I will need to reinforce the blank where the connection overlap. How long does the mal...

12 Antares 5.6 with a custom St Croix Legend Glass I love my LTG, got any pics of your custom? It's no showroom rod. This is from my Instagram page. There is a slight filter to it. It's pink thread on the rod, spiral wrapped with a Tatula flipping rod handle inserted into the butt to make it 2 piec...
