For years now customers have asked for a full metal idler gear...well, here it is! This full aluminum, ported idler gear is a first of its kind for Classic Abu reels. Weighing in a 3.7 grams, this idler isn't as lightweight as our Super Ported, plastic design, but is infinitely stronger. The extra rotational mass will help in casting long distance, with heavier lures and such.
These idler gears have 2 ABEC 7 bearings (supplied), giving you a longer, smoother cast. Idler will fit a most classic round Abu reels from 4000 up to 6600 size. Original PN# is 5152, this kit replaces PN# 5152 Idler gear and PN# 19373 Spool gear. This kit can also replace 23404 and 23403 idler and spool gear from the newer classic round reels.
- Ported idler gear machined for bearings
- spool gear
- 2 stainless bearings (ceramic Hybrid available in options)
- 1 bearing spacer for tuning
- 4490 c-clip in case you lose it or don't have one.
See videos below for old idler gear removal instructions.
**Please note: these idlers will not work in a few models, such as the UC series which take the 23293 idler gear. (the teeth are a different profile) Also, with older model reels, you will not need the spool gear included with this kit as yours will be a different style.
***PRODUCT DISCLAIMER - As these gears are made from metal they will not strip out like the stock plastic gear will in the event your finger gets caught in the levelwind system. By purchasing this product, you acknowledge this risk and accept all liability from it's use.
