G'day Matt,

The best thing to do is to ask Shimano Australia. They're usually pretty good with service and should be able to find out the bearing dimensions and I'm sure they'd have them or be able to do the service.

If you wanted to do the service yourself, I get all my bearings from Boca Bearings or Smooth Drag. (the latter have better prices but a limited range).

Cheers, Slinky

Yer normally service my own reels but don't have calipers to accurately measure the bearing, I will have a look at the sites n see what I can find, before I go through shimano.

Cheers

Not a problem Matt. I use a pair of digital calipers I picked up at Supercheap Auto for around $20. You'll spend more than that getting it serviced by someone else.

I am sure Freddy's Fishing World at Broadmeadow will be able to service it for you.

Good news, Matt. Replacing damaged or worn bearings is a great, quick and inexpensive way to greatly improve a favourite reel that isn't performing like it should.

Cheers, Slinky :thumbup:

No Problem with my Plaig line roller bearing after a year or so  and I just bought the cheaper material from there range.  For what was maybe $5 I'm happy.
