■Line Roller 2BB Spec

Replace the plastic collar inside the line roller (Twist Buster II) with the bearing (740 size).
Remove the screw on the line roller with a screwdriver and take out all the internal parts.
Then, replace the parts surrounded by the orange frame with the attached parts.

As the rotation of the line roller improves, it is less likely that thread twisting will occur.
The flexibility of the yarn is maintained, and the durability and flight distance are improved.

■Finesse spool drag bearing tune

When you remove the drag washers inside the spool, you can see the plastic ring at the far end, so you can replace this part with a bearing.

By adding a bearing to this part, the rotation of the drag can be made smoother, drag cling etc. can be reduced, and the best drag performance can be demonstrated.

■Tournament drag bearing tune

The plastic ring attached to the spool shaft can be replaced with a bearing to improve drag performance.

The plastic ring is only stopped by a thin hexagonal ring, so you can easily remove it by removing the ring with a handle knob cap tool or a toothpick..

By making this part that supports the spool into a bearing, it becomes a smoother drag.

■Handle Knob +2BB

The handle knob part can also be made into 2BB specifications by replacing the two black plastic collars with bearings.

When the handle knob rotates better, it not only improves the comfort of winding, but also has the advantage of being more sensitive and easier to interact with when fighting with fish.

* Parts that have a built-in mag shield when installing this kit (Do not touch the part under the rotor where the mag shield is engraved.)
Therefore, please be assured that the mag shield will never come off during work.

* It is also easily possible to return the reel to reassemble the parts as they were originally.
