    Default Abec 7 Reds China?

    I just ordered a heist of stoked (love it so far) and I ordered a pack of bones reds and figured I would keep whatever bad bearings that came with it for backup. When I was taking off the stock bearings, they say "Abec 7 Reds China" on the seals. Are these the same bearings? Which are better? It was supposed to come with element thriftwood abec 5... I'm a little confused...

    reds, are a great bearing. keep them, they are made in china. but so is just about every other non-swiss bearing, if you are worried, take it up with whoever sent them to you

    Bones Reds bearings are not ABEC rated. If there's an ABEC rating on the seal(s), then it's not a Bones bearing.

    Well the bones the came in the separate package look just like every other bones, maybe a picture would help. The seals on the stock ones have red seals and say reds china abec 7... I've never heard of these, and I'm just wondering how they are. i'm definitely keeping the real bones i recieved in the package, just trying to find out what came with the board. This site has a picture. http://www.soulboards.com/product_de...?id=CHINAABEC7

    Those are REDS know-offs i believe. but use them until they fail. they wont be any slower than real REDS
