Fishing reels have developed over the years to become lighter, stronger, smoother and more reliable. Bearings play a large part in this development. Better steel, closer tolerances, more effective lubricants and automated assembly mean that high precision fishing reel bearings are more affordable than ever. Most reels use ball bearings from one or two bearings to over ten in the spools, worm gears and handles of high-

Our stainless steel fishing reel bearings are available open or with stainless steel shields. The grease lubricated, shielded bearings can be supplied with only one shield, if required, for easier cleaning and relubrication.
Our bearing processing facility allows us to offer fishing reel bearings with specialist lubricants such as salt water resistant or fully waterproof greases for more challenging environments.
