He lads,

I have a penn mag 525 (slidey version) and I'm thinking of upgrading the spool bearings. What in your opinion is the best bearings to get?
Cheers,
Derek.

What's wrong with the originals? The ones that came standard one those reels were very good quality and wouldn't change them unless they are bust. Replacing them with steel bearings is the way to go, went for ceramics on one of mine and it's way too fast for fishing.

Hi Gearoid,

There's nothing wrong with the existing ones, I regularly service my reels so they're always in good nick, I was just thinking of upgrading them to improve my cast.

Didn't bother changing them after all.
