After putting Boca bearings in two C3s and a C4, and cleaning them up, I still could not get them to spin freely. Thinking that I may have done something wrong in the reassembly, I sent them to Dads Ole Tackle in Conroe to be checked out and some more bearing related parts. I heard back from them today and the guy I spoke with(Eddie?) told me that after going through them, he couldn't get them to spin right either. He finally discovered that the spool tension cap on all three were the wrong ones. He said he has seen this before and that they are coming from the Abu plant wit these caps. He replaced them and said they all worked fine now. I asked him to send me the caps with the reels so I could see the difference. When I get them, I'll post a pic on here of the incorrect ones so everyone will know what's going on. Just wanted to let you guys know, if you are having problems getting an Abu to run right, that may be the cause.
