    So are these ABEC 1? Every manufacturer of bearings rates them, so I am assuming since there is no rating, they must be Abec 1 or Abec 3. Can someone please clarify?

    you realize the abec rating means **** all for longboards? and does not affect speed?

    When you compare bearings by abec rating that's like comparing wheels by size. There are more important things to consider.

    Well...uh...technically...a 56mm 78a wheel is gonna feel a helluva lot different than a 66mm or 76mm of the same duro...

    I get that. These sound cool. I'm just going to assume since no one is coming out and saying these are Abec _ that they are 1. That's cool man. I will probably give them a whirl. I know you guys know, so you should just say 1 or whatever. Just saying.

    They're freaking fantastic. I think my bearings are starting to get a little dry but they're certainly not dirty!

    Also, lol at the abec 1 comments. If I was in this for a quick buck selling cheap-ass bearings they'd have been in stores 6 months ago and wouldn't be NEARLY as good as they are now. I love that you're skeptical and questioning, but you're not getting an abec rating from me and that's the way it's gonna stay. I bet bones ceramics are abec 1 too. Those darn not-abec-rated bearings are so crappy.

    Asking people to comprehend that properly lubricated bearings can handle twice of anything skateboarding can throw at it (And thats a shitty bearing) is sorta hard with today's marketing and stupidity.

    Also have you ridden in the rain at all during this testing and still kept gunk out? Not that it matters because these already sound magical.

    I got rained on over the weekend and they're no slower. I have faith in the seals but they're not perfect; just really, really good.

    Abec ratings only make a difference at speeds no longboard would ever reach, so as Book'o'worms was saying "There are more important things to consider"

    and for under $10 why would anyone complain.

    ??? any chance these would ever come with built in spacers at a good deal too?

    I have all kinds of ideas I want to implement. First thing I need to find is a great source of consistent, beefy, slightly oversize bearing spacers. I need to have custom tooling made to bring any special bearings to market but I'm trying to gather some investment capital to jump that gap more quickly.
