Greetings everyone! Some of you will remember me as the previous owner of RCBearings.

We are very sorry to announce that the USPS has dramatically increased the cost of small packet shipping to our international customers. The lowest rate used to be around $7.00. It is now nearly $13.00. We have no choice but to raise our shipping charge to match the increases from the USPS. We hope that you will understand and continue to appreciate our high quality at low prices.Paul McIntoshRCBearings.

Buenos Dias! When you create your profile on our system, please note that the USPS requires shipments made to Puerto Rico to have a USA address.

We are expanding our line of stainless steel fishing reel bearings to include hybrid ceramics. Most of these are sealed bearings to prevent sand and water from getting to the rolling elements. These high-precision bearings are all ABEC-5 tolerance class! If you repair fishing reels or own a charter business, let us know! We would love to hear from you!
