 Bearing quality of HEDGEHOG STUDIO

The difference between the bearings of HEDGEHOG STUDIO and the bearings generally sold.

Almost of all bearings that you can purchase in hardware stores or online stores at cheap price are made for industrial use.

Since industrial bearings are made on the assumption that those are rotated by electric motor, fitting them into a reel as they are causes “heavy and rough” rotation.

Reel is handled by human hands.
Turning the handle by human hands… in other words turning the bearing by our hands.
Therefore different quality from the industrial bearing rotated by a motor is asked for here.

The bearing of HEDGEHOG STUDIO is Japanese-made product tuned up in consideration of fitting it in a reel.
If you take in your hand, turn and compare the bearing of HEDGEHOG STUDIO with an industrial-use bearing, you will immediately understand the overwhelming difference in smoothness.
