Reel bearings repacement. . . . . . . . . .

Did a short video the other week just to highlight what a massive difference a new set of bearings can make, the two daiwa crossfire X's I was servicing were noisy, one kept jamming, then, on inspection it seems the reels had been left soaking wet on one or more occasions, and rust had set in to the bearings and basically ruined them . . . . . . . .

Luckily on this occasion once a new set were fitted, the reels were virtually like new ! Quiet and silky smooth once again and even with another couple of small springs that were changed during the services, the tally at the end was still only £40 everything included, so another happy customer back under the bivvy ;)
