5 Steps to Clean Roro Spool Bearings for Baitcasting Reel


If you want a bait finesse special which emphasizes lightweight and response, use Roro spool Bearings for your baitcasting reel.

All bearings need to demonstrate low friction, guidance with minimum runout or play, quiet running, low lubricant requirements, little wear and a long service life. In addition to all of these factors, different industries have their own special requirements based on special operating environments.

Roro bearings are deep groove ball bearings with semi open type. One side is stainless steel cover with shield structure, the other is open type with ball bearings (ceramic ball / stainless steel ball).

In a ball bearings, the load is transmitted from the outer race to the ball, and from the ball to the inner race. Since the ball is a sphere, it only contacts the inner and outer race at a very small point, which helps it spin very smoothly. But it also means that there is not very much contact area holding that load, so if the bearing is overloaded, the balls can deform or squish, ruining the bearing.
