I currently have an islander steelheader with the stock bearings. It's definitely one of the best reels I've used due to the amazing startup

 

Just looking for some opinions on whether the the abec 7 bearing factory upgrade is worth it

I’ve heard mixed reviews in the past. It seemed weird how the abec 7 upgrade was so expensive

Anyways, thanks for your replies and saving me some money
