Quote from: Robert Janssen on May 21, 2013, 10:48:58 PMOh yes this reminds me yet again about the AC R4 bearings for the Avets... I'll get back later on that Avet thread, but the short story is that i found three suppliers in the USA who had them, but was met with such incredible idiocy- absolute, utter, complete moronica- by some of the bearing suppliers and retailers that i just could in fact not contend with such simpletons and let it be for the time being.Anyway, glad to see metric AC bearings are available all over the place and being put to good use..

Quote from: mikx on April 24, 2014, 02:55:47 AMI've ordered a cheap $12 angular bearing from Amazon to replace the left side spool bearing on my Mak 30 SEa reel.It doesn't look like the pinion bearing has a lot of angular load, so I think this is the only one you really need.I'll post a follow-up once I get it installed.
