I have a couple of these. They have fished longer and harder than anything else I have owned . I catch a lot of fish and I'm very hard on reels. I can and do kill a lot of them in a season or two. These two lx's are simply bulletproof. I'd like to get a set of bearings for one of them but don't know the sizes. boca doesn't have reels this old listed . I've asked on avets website twice about this and a handle for one of these reels, crickets, both times. Maybe I'll have better luck here? Are bearings and a handle available for these reels ?
