What a great, quality engineered product..worth every penny!
Over the past 2 years I have placed several orders with Boca Bearings. I ordered via phone and customer service was top notch. My orders consist of Orange Seal Ceramic Hybrid bearings for fishing reels. I have upgraded 2 Shimano Calcutta, 1 Shimano Curado, and 2 Penn 525 Mags that I use for surf fishing. I was immediately offered a discount for finding that the Calcutta has 2 different size spool bearings. My bearings always arrive very quickly with FREE shipping...and they throw in goodies like catalogs, stickers and a mouse pad that has Orange Seal bearing images with actual sizes so you can match your existing bearing up...very useful.
After installing the Orange Seals...to say the difference is extremely noticeable is an understatement. Casting distance was almost doubled when surf fishing with the upgraded Penn 525's. I fish mostly salt water flats from a boat, kayak, and wading and after a year of abuse, and some salt water dunking, the reels are smooth as silk. Before the Orange Seals, heavy usage would result in grinding when casting and
retrieving and I would have to tear them apart and oil up the
bearings...not any more! I strictly use mono line and I easily
outcast my buddies using braided super lines...they are obviously surprised. After upgrading my casting reels, I will be working on my spinning reels next. What a great, quality engineered product...worth every penny. It's to the point now, that I will not use a brand new reel out of the box without installing Orange Seals.
Thank you Boca Bearings,
