Fjh (John) was very kind to send me a Drytreated WingCut 10 ball bearing. I have the Terrapin X dry lube, and love it. I have heard great things about his bearings, and was thinking about purchasing a couple. After trying this one, I will for sure!
This bearing has a very small groove in the middle, it’s barely visible. This groove, while not apparent, is very helpful. On almost every throw, the string was dead in the middle. This keeps the string away from the response, like a CT, while still playing like a flat. IMO, it’s the best of both worlds.
John has come up with an amazing formula, Drylube. It is a powder that is applied to a bearing. It increases spin time, without the cons of being dry or lubed with wet lube. I love the stuff, I’ve even applied it to my RC bearings. The bearing is not super quiet, like a brand new OD 10 ball. Nor is it loud, like a dry CT. It is in the middle, not too loud or silent. Some associate loud with gritty, which is false. This bearing, while it is louder than I would like, is super smooth.
Overall, this bearing is amazing. While it isn’t silent, this bearing was made for a player. You won’t care how quiet your bearing is when you’re rocking it on the stage.
Thanks for reading, I would appreciate some constructive critisism.
