Great Bearing for the money
Jeff Harper (California) 12/31/2016 1:08 AM
This Bearing is being reviewed in 8mm. Each rolling assembly sports 8x 1/8 steel balls in stead of 7x 5/32 balls. The bearing races are most likely chromium steel as well as the balls. 52100 would be my best guess. The ball retainers are most likely nylon or some kind of other plastic. The groves inside the bearing races are well polished and deep. The dust covers are thin and soft steel so be careful not to bend them when cleaning and re lubing the bearing. I love that they are greased not lightly oiled to impress 10 year olds free spinning the wheels with no load and bragging how fast their bearings are. A greased bearing will roll faster under load. Meaning that it will roll faster with a 100+ pound human being on them after some break in. A lightly oiled bearing can heat up burning away what little protection is there, causing the bearing to gull and burn. Not only slowing you down but permanently damaging the bearings. Grease will spread out over the whole bearing after a few hours skating,as the grease gets heated it will thin. So give them a good run in. They are very smooth, fast and should last along time with reasonable care and a little maintenance.
More smooth than fast

I have had my 8-balls for about 5 months and I can definitely say that my china bones are faster than these by a little, but there may not be a bearing on the PLANET that is a smoother roll. It honestly seems like the extra ball requires slightly more effort to push them, but there is absolutely no vibration when they spin, which is important with dancing and jam skating. WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!

WOW, after they are broke in watch out, these things roll faster than anything I expected. Worth every cent and will buy more for sure.

At First They Felt Kinda Rough. Once I Started Skating On Them More I Broke them In. Now When I Corner I Feel The Support From The Extra Bearing. Its Nice To Know I Can Turn Harder As I Roll Faster. Give Them a Real 2 to 3 week break in period and you'll Be Satisfied

At first I wasn't very satisfied with these bearings. I got them to replace my usual Bones Reds. They seemed sluggish and I felt slowed down. After about two weeks, however, they seemed to loosen up and break in a bit and now they roll just fine and I feel like I'm back at my normal speed. I'm not sure what the deal was with that. So yeah... after the initial break-in period I'm happy with them. Plus, I just like the black bearings. The dust shields seem to be good quality. Not bad for the price. Take that for what it's worth.
