Ceramic Orange Seal ABEC 7 Fishing Reel Bearings

Ceramic Orange Seal Fishing Reel bearing kits are an upgrade replacement to stock fishing reel bearings. These ABEC #7 bearings have ceramic balls with stainless steel races and retainers. Orange Seal bearings have a non-contact rubber seal which allows the bearing to spin freely with out any excess drag. Ceramic will never corrode; it has less rolling resistance and is lighter and than steel. As a result ceramic bearings last longer and cast longer...more

Q: How do I properly spin test my fishing reel bearings before installation?

A: We always suggest testing ceramic bearings by putting them under load. Fishing reel bearings are relatively small and ceramic is much lighter than steel so there is just not enough mass to see a prolonged free spin without a load attached to the bearing. The flick test seems to result in a perception that a ceramic bearing does not spin as long as a steel bearing, but as soon as you put both bearings under load the difference is noticeable. New bearings will require a short break in period, so comparing new bearings to old worn in bearings is not an apples-apples comparison. We typically just attach an awl to a bearing and give it a spin like shown in this spin test video.
