Really not needed. I didn't notice any difference. as long as the TT is straight, and the 2 bearings are spaced properly, that's really all you need

Hell... I can fix that.
Uh oh..
Nope.
It's ***ked!!!
RE-KIT!!!!!

3rd bearing is not needed. But if you do, you dont want even spacing. It creates are harmonic resonance that could creat problems.

600 uses a single bearing, 700 uses 2. really nothing to be gained, the torque tube has a lot of support at both ends of the boom.

save your money 2 isn't even needed , I did a bunch of different test with the tt on the 600 and more than 1 bearing makes no difference .

If you're not living on the edge you're just taking up space !

If it did make a difference, then your TT was not straight to begin with. (not totally uncommon to get a bad one.) Just make sure yours is very true and straight

I have never had any problems with using just one bearing. I don't see a need to spend more money if its not needed

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
