    New ceramic bearings??

    Just wondering how the new ceramic bearings are holding up and what are your experiences with the new ones vs the older type ceramic bearings.

    From a post I made not too long ago the consensus on the new style has been they are pretty good.

    I have put a few hours on the new set I had installed and have had no problems at all yet.

    I've got about 20 hours on my set and they are no problem at all. They sound a little different than metal balls but run smooth and true.

    Noticed when you spun the charger when off the ski?

    Yes, you won't hear them with the supercharger installed in the ski.

    The only time you will hear a ball bearing in the supercharger is right before it grenades on you, and they will be last of your worries. I have only read a couple of threads about ceramic bearings going bad, but that was the old style of bearing.
