I can tell the difference between clean bearings and dirty bearings. I can also tell the difference between high end / ceramic bearings and low cost bearings like bones reds.

However the difference is so small that I ignore it.

There are so many other features on a skate that that require attention and tweaking that the bearing difference is almost irrelevant until you sort out the other details. I've been playing with skates for the past 18 months. I'm up to 7 pairs of skates with a bunch of parts lying around and still haven't found the ideal boot or plate size and mount location (but I keep getting closer). Once I finally settle on a setup I'll start looking again at bearings and wheel spacers.

There are only 2 micro bearing manufacturer's in Switzerland. One in which Bones has the exclusive rights to use and anther called Jessa. At this point in time I only think Bont is utilizing their manufacturer leaving all these other "Swiss" bearings as phonies. Anyone can buy an , lets say ABEC and change the shield to say whatever you want unfortunately, this market isn't regulated so much...

Just FYI:

Do you have a link to the time machine you currently use?

No offense Gary, just time traveling.

Why not compare like for like...bones ceramics with qube ceramics?
