So I thought my Konkave Ceramic was the best as it can get for smooth play and quietness. I gave my 10-ball a try and been playing with it for hours.
I have got to say the 10-ball is the flat version of a Konkave Ceramic which is concave. Not only that, but you can get your hands on a One Drop 10-ball for less than 8 bucks if I can remember, whilst the Konkave Ceramic is 30 bucks.
Wow does this play smooth and quiet after breaking it in. I will probably keep the 10-ball in my Gradient and will probably do the same for my Benchmark W and Code 1 once they arrive tomorrow. If I wanted concave play sometime again, I will probably swap it back to the Konkave Ceramic, and vice versa in wanting to play flat.
One Drop is easily becoming one of my favorite companies as they have a side effect which I solely like for in case you strip your threading or axle (Which probably won’t happen as I heard they use 7075 aluminum). Now I have another reason to like them, 8 dollar high performance bearings.
