Tatula SV TW 6.3:1 Bearings

Post by Carruth8 » Thu Dec 07, 2017 9:08 am

Can anyone tell me the bearing size for the palm side cover bearing & the bearing that’s in the spool tension knob? I assume the palm side is a 3x10x4. I’m looking at going with ZPI bearings, but are there any particular ZPI bearing anyone may prefer over others? Or maybe Hedgehog bearings? I’m open to suggestions & value your input!

LMG has you squared away on sizes, but I've been really liking the ZPI Office bearings lately. Hedgehog ZR's are good stuff too, but I'm more impressed with the ZPI's

Thanks guys for the reply! I've got Boca Bearings in my 13 Concept C reel and they're good, but I like to try different brands. I'm not the type of person who finds one great brand of reel & then go buy 8 more of that exact same reel for example.

I'm the same way. I ha e 3 TD Zillions, but they are all different models. Example: 100HA, IP68, and SV103XS. The ZPi, and the ZRs In my opinion are way better than Bocas. You'd be amazed what the bearings you get from Boca actually are, and they are nowhere near the quality of the ZPis and the ZRs.

Try Hedgehog Air bearings, I like them better than ZPI's
