Since I started here, I've picked up quite a few of these Silver Series and Regal-D series reels-after fishing with the first one I got I just really like them.

After seeing The Fishing Hobby's video on replacing the nylon bushings in his reel, I did the same. It doesn't really smooth the reel up, but a few of the reels I have acquired had worn or very brittle bushings, and two of them are mix-master parts reels that I just didn't have all the bits for.

Anyway-Daiwa Reels Ball Bearing Interchange:

Silver Series/Regal-D:

130X - use 7x14x3.5mm ball bearings, type "687" for main gear only.

160X - use 7x14x3.5mm ball bearings, type "687" for main gear only.

1000X - use 7x14x3.5mm ball bearings, type "687". 3 bearings, pinion and main gear.

1300X - use 7x14x3.5mm ball bearings, type "687" for main gear, 9x17x5mm Type "689-ZZ" or "689-2RS" for pinion.

1600X - use 7x14x3.5mm ball bearings, type "687" for main gear, 9x17x5mm Type "689-ZZ" or "689-2RS" for pinion.

2600X - use 9x17x4.5mm type "689" for main gear. 9x17x5mm type "689-ZZ" or "689-2RS" for pinion bearing.

4000X - use 9x17x4.5mm type "689" for main gear. 9x20x6mm bearing type "699-ZZ" or "699-2RS" for pinion bearing.

7000X - use 9x17x4.5mm type "689" for main gear. 9x20x6mm bearing type "699-ZZ" or "699-2RS" for pinion bearing.

The Daiwa coil spring drag stacks are very similar in construction to each other. They mostly use a 6-washer stack, 3 frictions and 3 steels, and most of the mid-size reels use the same size washers.

Smooooth Drag Carbontex washer replacement:

100X/A-100RL - Modify 3pcs washer #13. Cut OD from 21.28 to 13mm OD.

1300X - Use 3pcs Washer #5

1600X - Use 3pcs Washer #5

2600X - Use 3pcs Washer #5

4000X - Use 3pcs Washer #9

7000X - Use 3pcs Washer #9

Some Daiwa reels in this series have a disc spring drag. The disc spring drags have a single friction, a single steel, and a flat disk spring. The 1000X is a notable example.

1000X - Modify Washer #54 by reducing OD from 33.8mm to 29.8mm. Use 1pcs.
