Quote from: Tiddlerbasher on July 08, 2013, 12:38:52 PMI've been experimenting with the Andros 511. The main issue I had was the bearings binding with higher drag. So I decided to replace the left spool and pinion bearing with angular contact bearings. WOW now with 15lbs at strike and 24lbs at sunset there is virtually no binding. Full on, and in high gear, I attempted to measure any binding with a spring balance. The scales barely registered anything (.5 to 1lb). Free spool (with the new bearing) 90 secs so no impact there! From an engineering point of view the reel just feels better (less stressed maybe?).The bearings (both the same) were from this company:http://www.gmnbt.com/spindlebearings_S.htmGMN Angular contact bearings S Series.No. Basic type Inner diam.
