There is NO WAY to discern which one is which! The little baggies that they came in both say, “Crucial grooved bearing size C Packaged by Yoyo Expert” However, one the word CRUCIAL highlighted in orange. Is the highlighted one ceramic? I can’t tell the difference between the bearings on a throw (which should be a warning about going ceramic in and of itself!)
Let me shake it up a bit now by saying that I actually purchased FOUR bearings, two of each. They came on the same day and I took them out of each envelope and threw them in a pile without looking at them because I figured that the pieces of paper inside would tell me which was which. I accidentally ordered twice and I plan to send one order back for a refund. Naturally, I want to keep one ceramic and one steel because that’s what I intended to pay for. Both orders have one highlighted (the one I didn’t mention is in green).
Now that I think about it, how do I know that YYE knows which one is which? How do I KNOW that I actually got two ceramic bearings and two steel? What if they made a mistake? I don’t want to take the shields off…
