General-Yo AIGR Bearing vs. 10-Ball Bearing (Large Size)


#1

ok im going to buy a new bearing for my axiom and i was wondering which bearing should i get, i’ve heard good reviews of the 10 bearing but whats the AIGR bearing?


#2

theyre both awesome bearings, i like them both equally so its really a toss up


#3

Well if you know you’re going to get one of those two, it wouldn’t hurt to try one that you haven’t tried before.


#4

i dont think he has. he said he heard good reviews.

but personally i like 10 balls, but others would argue.
you really could not go wrong with either.
for me it is a 10 ball


#5

whats makes the AIGR bearing special like how the 10 ball bearing has 10 balls


#6

I would definitely go with an AIGR bearing. Just think about this: They use them in aircraft such as F-16’s. Its probably going to be able to withstand a lot of play.


#7

I’ve never had the opportunity to try an AIGR, but the 10 ball is exceptional! And a bit cheaper, i believe. It spins and spins and then spins some more. To call it “smooth” doesn’t do it justice.


#8

Sorry, but you can’t really compare the two if you’ve never tried one of them. Also, it’s a whole 50 cents more. I would personally go with the AIGR because of what Samad and I have said: it’s used in aircraft and it’s something different.


#9

Well what do you prefer samad, because i’ve heard you talk about the 10-ball, i was wondering if you have played with the AIGR


#10

I own two AIGR :wink:

Super smooth bearings. 10balls are smooth, but I have found AIGR’s to be smoother. Also, it is amazingly quiet. However, if you run it dry it can be pretty loud (and smooth too) but I like to keep a little lube in both of mine.


#11

ive found that the 10 balls can be a bit finicky, i would probably go with the aigr because of that


#12

I just received both of them in the mail and they are both exceptional bearings. You cannot go wrong with either, but if I had to choose one it would be the AIGR. Like Samad said, it is ridiculously smooth and also a bit quieter then the 10ball.


#13

alrighty thanks for the help everyone


#14

I’ve had better expiriece with 10-Balls than AIGRs.


#15

Yeah, after awhile, my AIGR isn’t spinning so well anymore.


#16

I’ve tried both. 10 balls are my favorite bearing. Most of the AIGR bearings I’ve had have been bad, and so far I haven’t had any as good as my 10 balls. I’m still breaking in one of my AIGRs in right now and it’s a good one. But, I had to go through too many bad ones.


#17

Could you point out where i “compared” the 2? I plainly stated I’ve never used the AIGR and just gave my opinion on the 10-ball. Sorry, but you can’t really say i compared the two when i didin’t.


#18

Both are great. You can’t go wrong with either.

If you’re looking for quiet, go with a 10ball.

If you’re looking purely for performance, I’d personally say AIGR.

You’re pretty much guarantee’d to be happy with either of these though.
