A precision engineered Speed Bush for the ABU dome sided 5000, 5500, 6000 and 6500 reels (including the left hand wind 6501C3) that have a free-floating Ultracast spool but are fitted with the older type side plate with either a bearing or nylon bush fitted. It replaces the nylon cog on the spool, locating (after removal of the bearing or nylon bush) in the bearing cup in your left-hand side plate. The other end of speed bush locates on the inner race of the spool bearing, thus greatly reducing friction and the windmill effect of the original cog.
A speed bush is an essential part of any CT Conversion. The reduction in
friction and removal of the windmill effect caused by the nylon cog will
increase spool speed and allow increased casting distances to be achieved.
Please note: this bush is not for use on fixed spindle reel models.
