Double Bearing Levelwind
Levelwinds help the angler lay the line evenly onto the spool without having to use their thumb, however, there is a drawback - standard levelwinds significantly reduce casting distances! When you cast the reel, the spool not only has to spin itself but the entire levelwind train - the cog, wormshaft etc... and it thereby meets a lot of resistance. By installing this you will be changing the levelwind from one (or none) to two ball bearings and it will also add a ball bearing to the cog wheel thereby reducing friction.
Included in this kit:
- Worm gear
