Bantam MGL Upgrades

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.

Has anyone upgraded the bearings yet? Are the stock bearings that bad and what size are they?
What other upgrades have you done to IMPROVE the reels natural abilities ?

Sent both to Ian, he hooked me up with 100mm handles, polished tuned, YT Fusion brgs. Let my buddy use the 8 gear mounted on a NRX 894, he flips a lot, said it was by far the best flipping reel he has used, he is going to get one or two.
Really happy with them, mostly a Daiwa guy but the Bantams are impressive.
