I vote boca.. who the hell charges 5 bucks to ship 10 bearings.. AVID

who is free Boca.

is avid better? no.. is boca better? no.. same ABEC rating,

I've used avids and used boca.. and boca has better quality seals.

I may try that ebay ABEC 3 bearing from austrailia, 60 bucks for 100 bearings I think?

TKO!!! I bought (2) 10 packs (inner and outer= 10 pairs) of the special CB bearings for my 8ight 2.0 at the beginning of March. I race every weekend, maintaining clutch and bearings during the weeks... and I still have 3 sets remaining. These bearings are visibly more stout and rigid than any of the other bearings I've used. The races are really wide making for a quality product. When it comes to racing and bearings I'd stick with quality over quantity. I've seen too many "cheap" "$.99" bearings let people down in the heat of the moment.

My vote goes to BOCA. You can get the "economy" pack of 10 for $8.99 and like stated free shipping if you don't mind waiting 2-3 days longer. If you want you can always "upgrade" to stainless, ceramic or whatever at good prices as well. The economy bearings are great however. I busted bearing in my Nue brushless motor 2 weeks after i got it. Replaced with Boca's and lasted until I took apart to clean it. The only reason I changed it then was I had the motor apart and the bearings are $0.89/ea , why not?

I'd have to say Avid, I've used them for a while now, the quality is consistent from one bearing to the other.
