Identifying zpi, boca, hh bearings.

Post by paul19057 » Wed Jan 09, 2019 3:21 pm

Hi guys
I have a bunch of bc reels ( maybe 20 / 25 ) that have a set of one.of these bearings in them.
I want to replace the boca's and HH with zpi's.
How do I identify the zpi's from the boca's and HH bearings.
Thanks
Paul

ZPI bearings are unshielded on both sides. On one side you will see a resin cage. On the outside of the putter race will be 2 machines lines going the circumference of the race.

Does it matter how the bearing is mounted?
Resin cage to the spool side or facing away?
Thanks

It honestly makes no difference.
