#FR-008C-OS LD | SHIMANO, CURADO CU-50E (SPOOL) - BAITCASTER103 Reviews
DescriptionCeramic 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. All Ceramic Orange Seal fishing reel bearings are supplied Cleaned of Oil or Grease and Lube Dry LD. KIT (2) SMR103C-2OS #7 LD

Just a note regarding your Orange Seal bearings. I ordered a set for one of my Shimano Calcutta's recently just mostly to see if there would be a noticeable difference. Basically, the Calcutta's are extremely smooth reels anyway so I figured that would be a good test to see if the Orange Seal bearings were what they were supposed to be and if I felt they were worth the money. Well, as you can see I just sent you an order for the same bearings to replace those in the two other Calcutta's that I use. The bearings performed better than I had even imagined or hoped that they would.
I spent several years of my life as a fishing tackle factory rep and currently work part-time at the local Bass Pro store in the fishing department so I have had access to most of the products dealing with the fishing tackle industry over the years and still do. Occasionally, there are products that stand out in my mind as being outstanding products and your Orange Seal bearings certainly fit that category. Many thanks for a great product!!!

I must say,that is super proff. shipment over the great ocean.
thank you very much.

I am one for who demands high performance from my fishing equipment. I pay particular attention to detail and go extra lengths to ensure my equipment is ready to perform when I need it most (on the water). I�ve had all my reel �supertuned� and it did improve performance I was not satisfied and looked to what else I could do to get peak performance from my reels. I came across various posts on Texas Fishing Forum about Boca Bearings Orange Seal. I did a bit of research into ceramic and determined those where the one I was going to get. I was a bit skeptical at first but applied the free spin test. Before the spool would spin for average of 8 seconds. After replacing the bearings Boca Bearings Orange Seal the spool would spin for 18 seconds.
I have since have placed another order to upgrade my bearnings and plan to continue as my reel collection continues to build J

There are several things I would like to comment about your company.
1. It is easy to find the item you need on your website. Out of all the bearings available it only takes a few minutes to find what you need
2. Thanks for your no cost shipping/handling. Many places gouge you so much for these charges.
3. Quick filling of orders for fast delivery. Delivery of all of my orders has been 3 to 4 days, except week-ends or holidays.
4. Quality--everything I have received has met or exceeded my expectations.

Well, I saw a video online about Boca Bearings pertaining to a Calais. I didn't really believe the improvement I saw online was "completely" true. So long story short, I ordered the ABEC 7 (#FR-008C-OS LD) ceramic bearings. Three days later when they arrived I put them in immediately (btw, it was easy as hell).
I've got three words for Boca Bearings... HOLY F****N' S**T!!! The ceramic bearings are un-f****ng-believable. I can't even begin to explain the difference. I can cast farther with much less effort. I can make a short cast without even casting. All I have to do is lightly toss it. As much as my reel cost I feel I was cheated with the factory bearings.
I have two brand new Lew's Tournament Pro Speed Spool (with the carbon fiber handle), a Team Diaiwa S Pro, and several more top end reels that will be receiving Boca Bearings. I can't say enough about the help and support given by Larry when I called and the Company in general. Again, the only descriptor I have is "HOLY F****N S**T!" You'll be saying it too. Guaranteed!"

The reel had been working great efter the bearingchange and i have improved my casting lenght with several meters.
I took the reel apart and oiled up everything with your High Speed Oil. That improved my casting lenght even more, and the reel is working very smooth.

I installed bearings on 3 different reels within 15 minutes total.
My freespool and distance casting increased by approximately 20 percent...Maybe more in some cases.
I can cast smaller baits MUCH farther than before.
The bearings were loud at first, but quieted down over time.
My reel is not noticeably lighter, although I know these bearings are lighter.

Reviewer : Paul DayDate : 3/5/2019Awesome..... AgainThis is my 3rd or 4th set of bearings for fishing reels I've ordered from these fine folks.
Awesome product, good service and new life into my old reels. Some of my reels have 12+ yrs on em and cant tell it. Pitching is as smooth as butter, and I'd say 15 to 20% improvement on distance.
ty again for a very good product.
Reviewer : Paul DayDate : 7/2/2019I'm back again....The service is awesome, knowledgeable and friendly. I just bought a brand new MGL Chronarch 150XG, she reels and casts like melted butter now, but like my Curados and Calcuttas, I'm puttin them bad ass orange bearings in her. Great product can't say enough good things about em, buy I'm you won't be disappointed.
note... ceramic bearings are noisy but boy they are smooth and distance gained, good bang for your buck. use a micro amount of quality thin oil, it'll quiet them a bit.
Reviewer : Ernesto CoronadoDate : 6/5/2020CURADO CU200 BSF Information on the right set of ceramic bearingsHello.
First off, I have to say that I’m very impressed with the reviews and comments on your products, so I thought it would be a good idea to give my Curado CU200 BSF a second chance (bought it back in 2005) the present condition of the original bearings leave a lot to be desired (stands to reason).
All this being said, I was wondering if you could please give some orientation here since I’ve also noticed that you have 3 different models (the ones intended to upgrade the performance of the reel).
Ah, one more thing, are you currently shipping to Mexico?
Thx in advance, regards.
