A-men! I even took the time last night to calculate how much i actually spent on bearings in the past (on dollar bearings) as i never understood the reasoning on spending the extra coin on some good bearings.

considering i would change them out after every outing, i was chucking about 4 bucks a week. I brought a pack of 10 of those special TKO clutch bearings, and im still on the original set after 3 weeks of racing. i take them out before the main and they still feel the same as when they were new. I have no idea whats in them, but they are awesome. Its hard to explain over the net, its just something you have to try yourself.

I recently started using those TKO special bearings and they have been giving me great life, they are very good bearings and will last a lot longer than any $1 bearing. Before I started using the TKO special bearings I used some of the TKO cheapy clutch bearings (10 for $8) and they worked very good for me too, they arnt as good as the special bearings of course but they worked better than Protek or Avid 1$ bearings.
