Thanks David Feher… John
Well, where shall I start… When it arrived int he small envelope, nobody could tell, that I’m so fortunate, that I can have two from these insane things. It comes from John in a small nylon case, and there are points, that you can tell if it’s Steel or Steel/Ceramic. The „S” and the „S/C” are shiny, and for my surprise, you can’t find the small groove in the middle.
Yeah, everything fine, put in my Enigma the Steel one, and the S/C into my New Breed. First throw: pure amazement… The Enigma comes with a very very good bearing from the ILYY guys, but this thing is even better. Not so noisy, and believe me, spins forever. I don’t really have a trick or even a combo, what can’t be don from one throw. As I said, no noise, no need to lube i tor clean, it comes dry, and John advices not to clean it, or just in distilled water, or just blow it with compressed air.
After weeks of playing, no sign of being worse or noisier than when I got it. It spins for so long time, just needs to be broken in.
So, I’m pleased to use the Steel, but hey! I have an S/C too… First throw with my New Breed was amazing. It’s a bit noisy because the ceramic balls in it, but guys… Don’t tell me that you mind it if it spins forever…In my opinion it just needs a bit longer time to be broken in.
So after all, there is a small groove int he middle of every single piece made with a CNC machine. You can’t really see or feel it, but trust me, in use, you will feel the difference. I counted it, and from 10, 9 times the string was int he middle of the bearing.
Don’t really know what type of magical things are used by John, to make these things, but he makes it very well. If I’m right, he does some chemical black art treatments on them, that’s why he doesn’t recommend cleaning.
They are tested on very high speed, so you can’t go wrong with them. I can just advise John, and his little babies. Once again I’m really pleased to use it. Can’t find an other bearing like it. I really love them.
