Found out today :big grin: 3x10x4 same as the bearings for the handle knobs.

Cleaned up my Curado K today and added a worm gear bearing.
Reel is unbelievably smooth.
So far its got ZPI spool bearings, 2 handle bearings per knob and now the worm gear and re-grease

3x10x4 same as the bearings for the handle knobs.
