Bearings

Postby roger de dodger » Mon Jun 05, 2017 1:08 pm

I've just got a stock 7ht mag .
It seems slow even with mags on min ?
Feels like it's got mags on constantly when I cast .
I normally use an Abu 6500 with Bullitt and ceramic bearings maybe I should up grade the bearings or is it the mags on the diawa just too safe ?
Dodger.
Help please [GRINNING FACE WITH SMILING EYES]

Have you tried cleaning the bearings Roger as there might be some grease in them.
