Comments: So Gordon (I think) from IWH suggested these bearings when I complained about the ABEC5 and ILQ7, saying I'll get a longer, smoother glide on each lunge. Boy was he right: A longer glide and then some. Love the new experience - just finished a 10 mile roll.
Anyone wanting a free set of ABEC5 or ILQ7, send me a self addresses, postage prepaid envelope.

Comments: Great price for an amazing product! Keep up with cleaning and maintenance and these things can spin smoothly forever it seems! Will definitely continue using reds!
From: Monarch, CA
Comments: Insane value for fast as poo bearings! cant go wrong for $30. Recently cleaned and lubed them, and theyre spinning like new. Definately faster and more durable than other ABEC 5s or 7s Ive had.
From: Chadd, CA
Comments: Easily, hands down, the best bearings for the money. They last about 1 to 2 years (playing once or twice a week) and as long as you clean 'em every now and then, they'll keep rolling and rolling and rolling. Don't waste your money on ABEC-9s.
From: Peter, MA
Comments: My son has been rolling on the Bones Red's for about three weeks. About 4 hours a week. He loves them. He is 9 and is about 60 pounds. I don't think he is that must faster then before. Coming from stock Mission ABEC 5 that come with his skates. But I do see him skating harder & faster (No Pun intended) for longer. With the old Mission ABEC 5 I could tell when he needed to go for a rest. So I would give the a 4 1/2 out of 5. And not a five because I thought he might got a little more speed out of them. But the price is hard to beat. I would buy again.

Comments: Bones Reds are a MUST. For $30 you cannot go wrong. I upgraded my stock Mission Inhaler AC5 ABEC 7's with these and I tripled my spin time straight out of the box (not broken in). I paired these with some Rink Rat Hot Shot XXX 2012 Editions and I am impressed. Please do yourself a favor, if you have some stock ABEC 7's on your skates, buy these.
Comments: Not just best bearings for the money, but best bearings period! Bones doesn't use abec ratings because abec ratings weren't made to rate bearings for inline skates and skateboards. Instead Bones makes their bearings to withstand the abuse of inline skaters and skateboards alike. And they roll forever with little to no break in period. You take care of them, they'll take care of you.
Comments: best bearings ive skated in over 15 years of skating no need to spend more on anything else
Comments: Very smooth and effortless speed. Don't waste your time or
money with abec7 or abec9 bearings. REDS are the way to go.
From: Gabriel, PA
Comments: These bearings are incredible. They spin, easily, for a good minute or two with a kick. Definitely worth the money, and they last forever. I had my last set for almost 5 years before i just decided to replace them. These definitely compete with higher priced bearings.
From: Tim, CA
Comments: Probably the best set of bearings for the price!!! I wouldn't consider anything else.
From: Chris, NY
Comments: Crazy fast bearings. Using them on my outdoor setup on a pair of alkali CA5s with labeda grippers, unbeatable. Wont buy anything else..
Comments: these bearings blow away abec-9s. forget any other bearing company and go with bones. especially for the money!
Comments:IW set me up with these bearings and some new wheels and they made such a difference. What a fast, smooth, ride. Actually made me feel a little lighter on my feet. Very nice!
From: Tambra, Morro Bay
