Default anyone try these?

I usually run avid or boca bearings for my clutch at 1.00 each and I change them out every "race" day...but these would cost like .50 each and when I am only using them for one day anyways could save some money...like $60.00for every 100 bearings lol...

anyways just seeing if anyone has used these and your opnion please.

Same here. I am sure the bearings would be just fine and they look like a great deal. If you do decide to get them let us know how they are shipment wise and such.

I never order anything from overseas either. A cheap bearing can take out a clutch bell and spur, then how much did you save? Personally the best clutch bearing out there is the Tko radial thrust bearing. I'm getting 4 times the life out of them compared to the $1.00 bearings.

i have been running avids now for a while, if you put a drop of 3in1 oil in between race days they will easily last a gallon a set. i take off the bell and de-burr the shoes (if necessary) 1 drop on the rear bearing, then put on the bell and the front bearing. 1 drop on the front bearing then spin it a few times. aahh, like new again. i did buy a set of teflon coated bearings on ebay but hey did not even last a tank before they exploded.
