Well, I could help it. I managed to get my hands on the new 13 Fishing Concept Z reel and the first thing I did was take it apart. I made a little video to talk about the "CZB" bearings. Check it out here:
Thanks for the video! I’m eager to get my hands on a couple of those reels but everywhere I look they are back ordered. Called 13 fishing today and they couldn’t give me a release date. Good video, looking forward to a follow up.
I just picked one up at FTU the other day. I haven't even cast with it yet. It seemed a little loose, so I went back to FTU, and they said that that is just how they are. I'll see how it does, but I would have expected a $200 reel to be better made.
