So I got a Yelets with a 10 ball. Out of the box it ran silent – like stealth silent. Then maybe an hour later, without banging it on anything, the bearing became very loud. There was no noticeable change in playability.
I dropped in some yyj thin lube and went to sleep and then to work and when I got home – It is silent and plays like magic. But it’s a little slower than it looks but still awesome. You don’t always have to be fast. ;D
