SET OF 2 BEARINGS.
** NOW WITH LOW CONTACT ORANGE SEALS! **
Bearing size is 4 x 10 x 4mm. Si3N4 Ceramic balls. Fits all newer style Abu casting reels with bearing part #13472.
These bearings are incredibly fast. We have spec'd these bearings with both shields intact...if you wanted one side open, please choose in the options. For this option, we will hand pick and clean each bearing and pull the shield on one side. This is to facilitate easier cleaning. Just turn the open side towards the inside of the reel or spool and it's still protected. They come shipped bone dry with no oil in them. If you find them to be too fast, you can add a small drop of your favorite bearing oil to slow them a bit. Heavier oil will slow the bearing even more if desired. Ball bearings are rated in a classification system know as ABEC....Annular Bearing Engineering Committee. Bearings in the ABEC system are all called 'precision bearings' and rated from 1 to 9, 9 being the highest precision. The numbers jump from 1 to 3 to 5 to 7 to 9. A 'standard' bearing is an ABEC 1, a super expensive bearing is an ABEC 9. Abu's come stock with an ABEC 3 bearing in them. Kit contains 10 bearings and will fit C3, C4, C5, or any Ultracast style reel with the bearings in the spool. Any ?'s regarding fit, please either Contact Us or see our Schematics Pages

I replaced the genuine bearings in my ABU Ambassadeur 5600C5 Mag-X with a pair of these. They run very fast and I can now use less force when I cast. I have bought the same bearings before for some of my other reels and think this must be the best on the market.
Installed these bearings in my ABU Ambassadeur 5500 Pro Rocket and got a much better reel. It took some time to adjust the centrifugal brake to match the lighter running spool, but now it casts lighter baits without trouble.
Made reel exceptionally better
The only reason I rate it a 4 instead of a 5 is because I have nothing to compare them to, but so far they are incredible. They installed quick and easily, and are very fast bearings. It takes some getting used to when casting your reel, but if you're having problems with a reel, you should definitely consider new bearings like these. Great customer service as well, as he answered all my questions. Great guy to deal with. Thanks!
