Default where to buy bearings?

I found some from Boca 8x16x5 for 8.99 per 10 pack. Anybody find a better deal? I will be ordering 10 8x16x5, 10 clutch bearings, and 20 3/16x3/8x1/8 iirc.
Thanks

Boca Bearing is excellent quality and have been around before any of these "other" companies. They also have free regular shipping if you don't mind the wait.

I have given up on the Avids. they used to be of a much higher quality than they are now. They are still good, but they used to be heaps better

I've started using these bearings
http://www.plaig.com.au/store/index....111d83fd2c2b86
they are lasting longer than the Avids and they are so much cheaper. Its all in Australian dollars and he ships all over the world. 1 Aussie dollar is about 83 US cents at the moment

Instead of looking for the lowest price, check out the best value.
