what are skateboarding bearings are better, rush abec 7 or rush bombers?

are rush abec 7 bearings better or rush bombers? they are both 10 dollars at my local skate shop and i was wondering which are better.

Update:

i already know abec ratings dont matter, dont mention abec ratings are useless

Update 2:

i have also had bone reds, im not getting them though since im too lazy to spend 20 dollars haha.

    ABEC is a rating that tells you how smooth the bearing rides(fast) actually, abec 5s are the best bearings because the higher the ABEC rating, the lower the durability is. if you get the sevens, they will fall apart in like 4 months. the bombers are probably the best deal, but the best bearing deal ever is Bones Reds. They are 17 dollars, and they are just as good as Bones Swiss. (ive had them both)

    Abec 7 Bearings Review

    I had a few sets of rush bombers, they roll really good for a few months but they are basically disposable bearings.

    As for the 7s, no idea, but as a rough guide the higher the ABEC rating the more damage they will take from hand landings and drops. Although as you said, abec ratings are rarely accurate.

    Rush bearings are sikkkk, if had them for 2 years now, no rust. you have to get the "all-weather" ones those are the best.
