What happened to "Abec 3, 7, 9..." and whatnot? I fell for that shit hard when I was a kid. I have a set of Swiss Super 6s that have lasted me 6+ years, granted two of them are Reds now.

They still make them along with ceramic bearings.
Nothing I do deserves more than an iphone camera.

So, has anyone tried them yet?
Got A set beginning of June, still just as fast and have no plans of trying another bearing any time soon.

Nice can you keep us updated on their progress?
How are these holding up?
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

I'd love to know as well.  A friend went from Swiss (or maybe Super Swiss, I don't remember) to these & was plenty happy with them, but I'd love to hear more feedback from folks who've actually personally ridden both.  I'm personally biased towards the Swiss bearings vs. Chinese, but I also don't want to write them off simply b/c they NHS or b/c they're Chinese. . .

Guessing Bronson bearings are better than indy bearings. They look good.

First set if Indy bearings I had (the abec5's) all the shields fell off within a week. The nylon bearing cage on several of them also cracked over time. Set up a new set over the summer and those ones seem okay so far.

it doesn't apply to skateboarding because the ABEC system was designed and dedicated to measure things that are spinning at a faster RPM than skateboard wheels.

They did slow down a little, put a drop of speed cream in and still fast as they were.
No breaks but I had a shield or two pop off.

Been wanting to try something nicer than Reds, was hoping to get more info on the Bronson's, but there just doesn't seem to be a lot of real info/first-hand experience yet. Snagged a set of regular Swiss today instead & so far love them. Buttery smooth, can't wait to break them in!!!

These are fantastic bearings. I've had mine for a few months and they feel just as good as Swiss, but $15 cheaper. You can't go wrong.

I might give these a try after my Indy Blacks run out. The Indy's are by far the best bearings I've ever had though, and I don't plan on switching anytime soon.

What major bearing manufacturer makes these? From my understanding, bearings are like decks in that a few major manufacturers actually make them and various brands put their branding on them and sell them.

Funny but I always rode Mini-Logo 10 fucken $ bearings set and I never had one bearing to break on me.
Except I got my board stolen 2 weeks ago and went to ultimate dist and got Swiss for the first time
Im just upgrading to these now, after 10 years of reds, than mini-logo
So I guess that new Bronson shit is gonna have to wait at least 3 years for me lol.

New Bronson G2s. Looks like they are priced to compete with Reds.

I've been really impressed with Indy Blacks. Are the Bronson's worth the extra $5 or so?

Of course, if you've got the money, its hard to beat Bones 6....

Fuck Bronsons.  I got a set of bronsons like 2 weeks after a set of indy blacks and the bronsons started going before the blacks.

The best and longest lasting cheap bearings you can buy are Reds, period. If you want to spend any extra money, buy the Super Swiss 6 Ball bearings. Worth the money and will last a very long time. I can feel the difference in the smoothness of my ride, my speed is doubled, and they're nearly silent from beginning to end.

Bronson is another gimmick, fact.

The name sucks. They don't have any pro or am backing their shit. Would never buy. The logo is even terrible.

some dudes that stand out are:

Pedro Barros, Elijah Berle, Josh Borden, Blake Carpenter, Cody Chapman, David Gravette, Jaws, Cyril Jackson, Willis Kimbel, Jeremy Leabres, Dan Lu, Luan, Ben Raemers and Raybourn, Leo, K-Walks, Clint Walker.
Check out the team page, seem to have plenty of rippers
