This kit comes with two bearings, sized to fit the Kastking Kestrel Elite BFS reel.
These Roro Ceramic Hybrid Micro Bearings are a significant upgrade over the stock bearings in the Kestrel Elite BFS Reel. By swapping to micro bearings, spool startup speed is greatly increased, resulting in more effortless casting, longer casting distance, and the ability to more easily cast lightweight lures. Swap the factory bearings out today to get optimal performance from the Kastking Kestrel Elite BFS Reel.
