Hey Guys created today is a 4 piece bearing kit available for the new Shimano Stradic FJ series reels 5000,6000.8000FJ !! If you have not seen my discussion on Sportfishermen.com check it out here at http://www.sportfish...ow-1810278.html

And for the 5000FJ illustration click here : http://www.sportfish...ts-1976545.html

I am advertising a kit that adds 4 more bearings to your already 6 bearing reel making it a 10 bearing reel by removing the cheap nylon bushings they installed in your high dollar spinning reel ! The kits are $36.95 with free shipping in the U.S, And $39.95 with free shipping International. Take advantage of this deal as these bearings are top notch and are far superior to the factory steel bearings in your reel. The kit includes 2 bearings that go in your handle knob, 1 for the rear worm shaft and 1 for the oscillating slider. PM Me if your interested for details !, tight lines !!

I want to order these Bearings. What kind are they, hybrid ceramic? How do I get a hold of you? I don't know what PM stands for I live in the woods. Thank you for your knowledge; I don't like cheap plastic in my reels either. Also I heard that when replacing the felt drag washers with CarbonTex in a Stradic 5000FJ that the bottom carbon washer will slide around and needs to have a thin plastic washer under it. Do have any tips or knowledge on replacing the stock washers with carbontex?
