Mine is getting loose and have been thinking about replacing mine. Never even thought about an aftermarket replacement, so it will be interesting to read what comes along.

Wife put a Redhead in her RCLB a coupla years ago. Night and day, esp. combined with a Flaming River shaft and real u-joints instead of that glorified rag-joint down at the box. They say they have a stock of recirculating balls of sizes very closely spaced, and they measure the races of each core they get in, and precisely match the recirc balls to the specific races.
