So I picked up one of the new CLYW Arctic Circle 2s from the store and it has quickly become one of my favorites.
Out of the box played great and I simply have no complaints. Read about the AC1 and how some people think it’s better… (it’s all opinion), so I picked one up on the BST. Pretty sure it came with the old CLYW 8 ball bearing.
Both throws have amazing built quality and feel, both are now on my list of “grab” throws when leaving the house. I won’t pick one over the other, they are both solid throws and both are winners IMHO.
My question, I actually really like the 8 ball bearing, it’s a little noisier than the new one, but overall, it performs really well. I have a pack of upgrade bearings for throws with subpar performing bearings, but this one really nails it so I left the original there. Did I luck out with the bearings? I’ve read posts about CLYW bearings being subpar, but my experience is 2 for 2 great one.
