I upgraded my Citica with BOCA bearings. They cost less than 10 bucks shipped. GREAT bearings and I notice a HUGE difference.
Ohh son!! That's a 4, 5 ,7 8, 12 punder son!!

You can add a bearing to the drive shaft. The drag washer material in the Curado is the same as what we use in the Citica. Change the spool support bearings to ABEC 5 and add the drive shaft bearing. This will make the reel cast better and feel smoother.

Get them from Bocabearings. They are number one in bearings they make them for high RPM rc cars and airplanes and such.

Like stated before get Abec5 bearings sevens are made for extremley high RPM. Just overkills for the reel.
