Oh god, this is so bad. How come Dill didn't tell them this is a really, really bad idea, and a really really poor taste.

i like how they add free nuts to the bearings though, that's pretty cool

True, but with all the added cost of the packaging and stuff, you know the bearings must be bad in order to keep the margins. Unless their first batch is top quality in order to make people think it's good shit.

I am curious with how they will be, The non pro ones that are 15 and 20 don't come with the extra nuts and shields. So for another $10 to $15 you get nuts, extra shields and maybe a better bearing
edit: last time I paid for axle nuts I think the full set was $1 or less

Shield popping tool, extra shields, extra nuts, cool flames on the shields, no spacers. LOL. What a fucking joke.

Am I the only one who doesn't understand what's so bad about these? I wouldn't buy them but I don't get the hate?

I think it comes down to them throwing a bunch of unnecessary shit to justify you buying their product, when the actually performance of the bearings is about the equivalent of a set of Bronson G2s. lol

No spacers gets me every time. I swear I got a set of swiss 6 for $36 last year stacking codes on skatewarehouse.
