Any lockup issues with this one? Does it work with the original main gears?

One of the guys at our club was having OWB lock up all the time. Put the new design in and hasn't had any problems since. I don't have a 550/600 size though so I don't have first hand experience but I do help him out with his and it was a real problem. He's a sport flyer so wasn't beating on it hard but would lock up regularly. I don't remember needing a different main gear, I think it's the same bolt pattern as the old OWB housing.

Four Stroker is right on. As for it preventing lock ups, I'm guessing that's hit or miss as many seem to report. Everyone seems to have "fixes" for the bearing lock up issue and some folks never experience it. Knock on wood, mine is still spinning nice and free and I'm using the stock bearing with the grease sprayed out and Tri Flow put in.
