update on the ADEC 5’s i put in the Daiwa TD-A’s. First few cast were not good. few more after that still no good and i was throwing a spoon which you can launch for miles. Couldn’t cast it 20 yards and was getting po’ed.
i tied on a Horny toad and started to fish the scum. after about 20 or 30 more casts i was launching it acrossed the pond. MAN, once the bearings got broken in it was sweet. cast forever and reeled in smooth and effortlessly.These reels have never been better since i got them from Twitch’s uncle, so they were heavily used. They don’t look it but they perform like brand new reels, and better than some new ones .
these TD-a’s are now better than some reels i had bought brand new. i am totally impressed with these bearing and will buy more for sure. Guys if you have a reel you like and it’s starting to bog down on you, spend the 20 bucks for these new bearing and it will bring it back to life. The ADEC 5’s i bought were only 19 bucks for 2 bearings. better than spending 100-200 for a new reel. I’m stoked.
Had a few blowups on the frog and i missed them, my fault, wasn’t expecting anything to hit. i’ll be ready tomorrow.
