Product Description

GOLD Works presents an original project.
The first installment is the meticulously crafted “TAKUMI Bearings.”
Just bearings? No, in reels, bearings are everything.
A lineup of six types tailored to various uses is available.
Step into the world of self-satisfaction and experience the difference.

“TAKUMI Bearings”

Bearings are selected from a large number of domestic bearing units based on strict criteria.
After passing through meticulous processes, only 30% make it to the final product.

Please experience the difference in feeling.

The lineup focuses on the “durability” and “precision” required for internal drive system bearings.
A large number of base bearings are hand-selected and coated one by one.
Only those that meet the standards are shielded again at the factory.

Size Lineup

“Self-Rotating” Ultra High-Speed Model

Since this part directly touches the fingers, it undergoes a break-in process three times longer than other series.
Afterward, it is treated with the original blended oil, achieving smooth knob rotation.
This enhances the “winding sensitivity” of the reel.

- 740 (7mm-4mm-2.5mm) Open
- 850 (8mm-5mm-2mm) Open

“Non-Rotating” *Low-Speed Model

Based on the self-rotating model, this type undergoes a break-in process soaked in medium-high viscosity oil to reduce noise further. Contrary to the self-rotating model, it barely rotates. This model minimizes knob rotation noise and is ideal for big bait and reel games.

- 740 (7mm-4mm-2.5mm) Open
- 850 (8mm-5mm-2mm) Open

“Micro-Rotating” *Saltwater-Compatible Model

Selected anti-rust base bearings are repeatedly broken in and coated, followed by treatment with medium-viscosity anti-rust oil.
This model is suitable for a wide range of saltwater uses, including Red Seabream Fishing (TAI RUBBER), Seabass, Chinning (Black Bream Fishing), and Rockfish.
It provides smooth winding and reduces the load on the winding mechanism, greatly enhancing the amount of information conveyed by the reel.

Installation and Maintenance of TAKUMI Bearings

TAKUMI Bearings are oil-treated at the time of shipment and can be used as is.
To maximize performance, please check the following instructions.


1. Open the package, wipe off excess oil with a tissue or paper, and install it as is.

2. Rotate the handle and check for any abnormal noises.

3. Remove the spool again, wipe off any scattered oil, and reassemble.


1. Use the recommended grease oil indicated on the package or oil of a similar viscosity.

2. For regular maintenance, add more oil. If dirt or debris causes rotation issues, use a parts cleaner to degrease, dry thoroughly, and reapply oil.

(Rest assured that cleaning with an ultrasonic cleaner will not remove the coating.)

3. Avoid applying grease, as it may significantly reduce performance.

*Resistance is minimized for long-distance models compared to other models, which may result in noticeable noise. In such cases, lightly apply low-viscosity oil to the bearing contact area using a fine brush. Be careful not to apply too much, which may impair the original rotation performance.
