Has anyone heard about this brand of bearings?

Looks like Tampa doesn't have anymore in stock and Tactics has the cheaper ones on sale (if anyone wanted to pick them up)

They break in nicely and are fast but, then they broke

Donít do it!

The only cheap bearings worth a try are from trusted brands and word of slappers like maybe those 11:11 bearings

From my experience rush have only been good once and it was some 7ís or whatever theyíre called cause they were actually some what quality not the best but they worked pretty well, bombers are the worse

Itís best to go with either mini logos, Indy gp, or the fast but fragile spitfire cheapshots
yes

You may have gotten a set from our very first batch that we had some issues with! We've moved to a new factory and are super happy with the quality since. Just sent you a DM, would love to send you a replacement set to try out

I just got a set of Indy Blacks in the mail last night.  It's freezing cold so it'll probably be a couple days before I can try them out.  I'm running Bronson G3's right now.  I haven't had any issues with them and they felt fairly fast to me, but all the hate has made me paranoid.  The love the blacks have had recently (and the price) made it a safe bet for me to try them.
I was addicted to the Hokey Pokey, but then I turned myself around.

had the hard luck ceramics for a year, still as fast as in the beginning. no complaints here.
Yeah. I've got two sets of Hard Luck ceramics and I fucking love them. I had the first set of 6balls they released too but the shields completely fell apart so I was basically skating shield-less bearings since everything up to the metal part of the shield just shredded but they were still pretty good bearings.
