    I finally got mine after a usps hiccup, put them in the other day and fished stockerfest over on the Huron. Which has a lot of slow water, startup has improved. My stock bearing were pretty good I would say, the abec7’s were definitely worth the $30 upgrade.

    Is the upgrade hard to do? I have some fairly basic tools and skills, but nobody will confuse me with being a skilled machinist or anything.. TIA.

    Super easy. Took about 3 minutes. Remove the center bolt that holds the spool to the back plate. A small Phillips screw driver to remove the bearing cover. I used a bobber to push out the bearings and spacer. Pushed new bearings in with bobber. Very easy.

    Well I ran the new Abecs yesterday for the first time. I was very happy with their performance. BOCA has a promo going right now. 25SPRING18 for 25% off your purchase. I ordered another set for my 4 3/8” Matrix. Discount put them at $23.71.

    There’s also some shiny feeesh swimming around. Caught a few suckers as well and lost a nice walleye. Spawn and egg yolk beads in 8 mm.
