Guide Review - Bearings - Bones Super Swiss 6
But, it is important to note that Bones Super Swiss 6 are a pretty new idea. They've done great so far, and everyone seems to be happy with them, but some people are uncomfortable with change. The sweet thing is that they don't cost much more than Bones Swiss! So, if you are a little slow to try out something new, the next time you go to buy Bones Swiss, just try out a set of Super Swiss 6 instead. You'll be glad you did.
When you do try them out, they will roll fairly fast right at the beginning, but then they sort of "break in", and then they roll REALLY fast. So look forward to that, and don't judge them right away. Also, remember to take good care of your bearings. Just because they are tough, doesn't mean you want to get them all dirty and then leave them that way. Take good care of 'em, and you'll be able to ride them long after your friend's have had to replace their cheaper bearings.
Bottom line - Bones Super Swiss 6 look like the next big ticket. Give them a try, and you won't be disappointed.
