    just wondering if anyone could tell the proper way to measure a bearing to get a size (ex. 4x10x4 ). I have the OEM part# but I want to change the type of bearing.

    Below is directly from the site that Abu posted where he gets bearings for his reel upgrades. Basically ID X OD X Width. Hope that helps! If you have access to a set of calipers that would probably be the way to go since the dimensions are so small for reel bearings.

    5x11x4 : when you search for Ball Bearings with 5 mm inner diameter (ID) and 11 mm outer diameter (OD) and 4 mm width
