Bearings for Lews Speed Spool lfs

I have a couple of The lfs speed spools, and I’m wanting to upgrade the bearings. I’ve had some recommend using unshielded bearings. Anyone have any recommendations on a site to order from. I’ve read some about the Sapporo (?) bearings being good for the price, but can’t find much info anywhere. Thanks in advance.

Thank you all for the replies. I see a lot of people use Bocas, but I’ve read for the money you can get better bearings. I’m new to all this so I’m going off of opinions. I’m looking for a site where I can order bearing kits other than just Bocas website.

Get on Boca's mailing list. They run specials fairly often. I use the Abec-5 bearings.

im waiting for my hedgehog studios to come in for the lews lite. I can let u know if I think $50 bearings are worth it. iv had boca in the past I never had a problem with them other than the noise but some people will swear they are horrible bearings.

Let me know what you think of them. I was initially going to order Bocas, but I’ve had a few people say they didn’t like them.

I spend over $1000 a year with Boca and I never have any complaints. Their customer service is outstanding, I receive most orders in 3-4 days and they run specials quite often. Any ceramic bearing run dry will make some noise, but that is not how any fishing reel bearing should be used.
