I’ve heard a lot of great things about this bearing. I noticed on the store page for it, it says there is a break in period for these. About how long would you say it takes to break in one of these one drop bearings?
Won’t take that long, do some gyros or clean the bearing.
They first go loud and responsive within half an hour for me. I continue to play them for a little while just to work through whatever it is (and I have NO idea what it is that causes this) and then I clean them. Tiny drop of V4M after and I generally get good performance for a good long time.
Mine usually take a good few hours to really start spinning unhindered by lube.
It depends on how much you throw a day but like people have said do some gyros throw some really fast combos any thing to break in the lube
