And metal shields allow more dirt and debris to get inside the bearing...

I prefer rubber sealed, just because they are easier to clean.

Hey,

Yap I know where Maple Ridge is. I shop at Golden Horizons and online mostly.

A new shop called RC Pro Shop has just opened too. You may want to check that out.

I've had teflon sealed and they were hard to maintain. The teflon became soft and was impossible to put back on. It was like doing surgery on a thin piece of paper. I prefer rubber shielded. Metal lets alot of dirt in which sometimes could be hard to clean all out.
