Anti Reverse Bearings

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

When have you ever needed to change one?

-why? and what do you think was the culprit?

its mainly the sleeve that needs replacing due to corrosion or pitting, But the bearing itself also suffers the same. The antireverse bearing and sleeve are the most overlooked item when trying to find the source of vibration in a reel. people will change bearings and gear sets only to find its the antireverse causing the issue.

I've seen plenty of them fail in my years of working on reels. Most of the time it is caused by rust. But some I have seen the plastic needle bearing retainer crack into pieces destroying the bearing.

Most of the reels I service around here are used in the salt, and the ARB is always a problem. 90% of the time people think they have a gear issue, it’s the ARB or a frame bearing that has rusted slightly. Once I use TSI 321 on them, no more problems.
