Fishing Reel Bearings

NPB® Bearings has been an industry leader in fishing reel bearing replacement for over 10 years. Reducing rolling resistance and conserving energy has been our hallmark. We have developed a full range of aftermarket fishing reel bearings for all the leading reel manufacturers including Shimano, Daiwa, Penn, Abu Garcia and many more.

Standard & Ceramic Hybrid, Stainless Steel fishing reel bearings are available in ABEC 5 & ABEC 7 for all of the popular fishing reels. Ceramic by its nature is lighter than steel by about 2/3 the wieght, it is harder than steel when it is in ball form and it is virtually frictionless because it is non-porous. A ceramic hybrid bearing has steel races with ceramic balls. The balls will never corrode or rust.

We are able to supply you with High Precision, Stainless Steel, Ceramic, ABEC 7 fishing ball bearing┬áthat are equal to or superior to the manufacturer’s recommendations. We can supply these fishing bearings with your specified lubrication or ship them dry, ready for you to apply your own special lubricant; and we can do all this at an affordable price.

To make things easier for you we have compiled bearing kits and listed them according to the manufacturer and model of the fishing reels that the bearings will fit. We list bearing sizes for most major brands of fishing reels. All of our fishing reel bearings are rated at ABEC #5 or #7. If you cannot find your particular model listed, you can search by dimension or send your old bearings directly to us and we’ll find what you need.
