Hey guys, just stating something I’ve noticed lately, and maybe somebody can help me.
I am a big One Drop fan, and because of that, I purchased some of their 10-ball bearings. I really like how quiet and smooth they are; they are definately a high-quality bearing. However, over the last couple months I have aquired some other bearings, specifically 3 Crucial V2’s. The V2’s come stock in a lot of RecRev yoyos, so I have a couple around. I really really like them. However, when doing a direct comparison of the two, I find that on a flick, on average, my V2 bearings will spin around 23-24 seconds, while my OD 10-ball bearings spin around 6-7 seconds.
I do not have any lube in either, the OD bearings have been cleaned, as well as my V2’s. This isn’t with just 1 10-ball bearing, it is with all 5 I have. They all are consistently slower than my V2’s.
Does anybody know why this happens, even a solution to fix the problem? I really want to keep supporting One Drop, but if there isn’t a solution, I may need to start getting some V2’s.
Also, I don’t want to start a bearing argument. I am just staing my findings as of late, and want to see if they are similar to other people’s findings.
