    I was wondering it anybody has the Abu Garcia 7000i red. Thinking of buying one. Do they cast well? Can they be upgraded to bearings?

    They are very good reels, and yes they can be upgraded.

    Not the best Abu makes but a pretty good reel. Bought three and have had one malfunction so far. As is they are not much on distance but can be upgraded using 3x10x4 bearings. Can also upgrade the drag to carbontex for a few bucks smoothdrag.com

    How difficult is it to make these upgrades?

    Simple removal and replacement. There are threads on the BOC entrance page on how to both.
