Re: bearings, bearings, bearings!
Very interesting thread.
I'm curious Alan if you have heard of ceramic bearings? My neighbor owns a bearing manufacturing company and provides bearings to all the major reel companies. He is in the final stages of designing a completely ceramic bearing that will outlast even stainless steel bearings with zero corrosion of the ceramic materials used. Yes, they will be expensive but could revolutionize salt water bearings for a variety of applications.
Just curious if you have heard of the ceramic bearings and if so what your thoughts are about them...
