Good day all...
Does anyone have experiance with the Bont Samarai bearings? They have a 14
ball configuration as opposed to 7,8, or 9, or their 11 ball baby bonts.
They come in ABEC 5 and Ceramic, are 50 percent lighter than 608s and will
fit in any 608 wheel or frame, unlike 688. Unfortunetly they are over 200
I was interested in them, but am unsure about their worth. I am currently
using a Verducci frame that will not accept 688 bearings due to the hubs on
the frame. However, I don't mind shaving then down. I was originally going
to buy the Bont 688 Ceramic 11-ball Baby Bonts for about 130 US dollars.
Another bearings I was interested in was the SINSystems Gold Ceramic, which
are about 60 US dollars. However, I have heard some negative things about
these bearings concerning lockups. The price is very appealing though.
I skate in ideal indoor skating conditions, on a polished hardwood floor.
Please share your input.
Thanks a lot.
