    What kind of store is this Rogers store of which you speak? Do they have a web site? Sounds like an awful good price on those reels. I wish I lived in that area, I would sure check it out. Is Rogers the full name of the store or is that just a shortened version of the real name?

    I just went to their website & I didn't see anything about those reels being on sale. It must be an in store sale only. That's the way my luck goes,if it's a good deal I'm not eligible or something else is wrong. I wouldn't mind having a couple of those reels. Where is Liberty,Mo located at?

    That's a hell of a price! If I were you, I'd get as many as I could afford!

    Thanks for the heads up on the 7000.They also have the 9000 for the same price which I bought one of and also a bait net.With previous experience with ball bearing Abu's will probably leave it home when going salt water fishing unless replacement bearings can be found easy and fairly inexpensive.

    You can get the replacement bearings for about 25.00 per 10 for the stainless bearings, or 50.00 per 10 for ceramic ABEC5 off of ebay. I think the guys username is irvinman or something like that. He's out of california and also has a website to get them. I can't remember the name right off the bat, but think it's DMX bearings or something.

    To replace the bushings/bearings on the 7000 is easy. Just take the right side plate off and remove the spool. Then take off the adjustment knobs from the right and left plate. Take the bushing/bearing out of the right side plate and install the new bearing. Sometimes they won't just fall out and you have to push them out with the spool shaft.
    The left side plate bushing/bearing is held in by a wire retainer. It comes out easily and the bushing/bearing either falls out, or needs to be pushed out.

    Just remember, when switching from bushings to bearings, take the felt pads out of the inside of the spool/tension caps! Those tiny little fibers can get into the bearings and really gum things up.

    Good luck, hope you enjoy the new reel.

    Oh yea, I forgot. The bearing size for the 7000 is 3X10X4mm. I'm not sure about the bearing size for the 9000. I just kinda figured it would be the same as for the 7000. If not, it's probably the same as for the 6000/6500 with is 4X10X4mm.
