How to spool a baitcasting reel? Lightweight precision Roro Spool is your best choice.
How to select the right BFS Roro X Spool?
Q1: How do I determine which size of BFS spool to buy?
A: Determine the spool diameter of your stock reel. In most baitcasting reels, spool diameters are in the range of 28mm to 34mm. You can check your spool diameter using a ruler.
Q2: Can I use a Roro X Spool with the same spool diameter as my reel, but not on the applicable model list?
A: The spools on the applicable model list have been tested and guaranteed for quality. We cannot promise the same performance for other reels with the same size spools.
Q3: There are two Roro X spools with the same size, which one should I buy?
A: Some models can be applied to different scenarios, such as RX30 and X27. Both spools have a 34mm diameter, but are for different scenarios. RX30 is for ultra BFS casting with bait weights from 0.8 grams to 6.0 grams, while X27 is for bait weights from 1.8 grams to 15 grams. Choose the one that fits your casting needs.
Q4: Does the Roro X Spool come with a spool bearing? Do I need to buy one separately?
A: Yes, our Roro X Spool comes with one Roro stainless steel bearing, which is a micro BFS bearing.
Q5: Do you recommend replacing the stock Roro X Spool stainless steel bearing with a Hybrid Ceramic ball SIC bearing?
A: Our Roro stainless steel bearings perform well, but if you want a perfect bait finesse special emphasizing lightweight and response, we suggest using the Roro SIC Ceramic Ball Spool Bearings.
Q6: Do I need to replace the side plate bearing of my stock factory reel?
A: No, you can install our Roro X Spool without changing anything. However, you can strive for perfection in two scenarios:
1) Roro X Spool with BFS stainless steel bearing + Roro stainless steel bearing for side plate,
or 2) Roro X Spool with BFS Roro SIC bearing + Roro SIC bearing for side plate.
Q7: There are two inductors for the Roro X Spool, which one should I choose?
A: The thicken model is for casting ultra-lightweight rigs with more comfort and less attention to the brake. The standard model is for advanced anglers who may use their thumbs to add casting distance. Check out our article "Roro Spool two Brake System for Baitcasting Reel" for more details.
