    Guys, I posted this in the Reel Repair/Upgrade forum but wanted to post it here as well to make sure I get more eyeballs looking at it. Does anyone know if there is a manufacturer making bearings that could replace the bushings in the Abu 7000I red reels? I'd like to replace the bushings and upgrade them to bearings, making the reel a three or four bearing reel instead of a 1 bearing reel. Thanks for any help.

    Welcome to BOC Matt. You can find bearings at boca bearings, smooth drag, and cast away promotions.
