Default Acer or Boca?

I am looking to buy Ceramic bearings?
Seems like these two companies are the only ones that make them.
Which one is better?
Any feedback will be appreciated.

I have ordered from both. I order a ceramic bearing kit for my Novarossi .12 from Boca and a Team Magic G4 ceramic bearing kit from Acer. The front bearing from my .12 lost the seal the first weekend of racing - go figure. Boca shipped me one out a replacement USPS Priority. I was able to reach them using both phone and emails (even when they had hurricanes in Florida). So far no problems with my Acer bearings. The Acer customer support was slower, but I only tried emails (as per their web site). I asked alot of questions before I ordered from Acer, just to be on the safe side. They were very helpful, but not as fast and professional as Boca.

Also, the Acer shipping was very slow, it took at least a week to get my stuff.

You get what you pay for!
