Big difference between ABEC 3 and 5 skateboard bearings?
Is there really a big difference between them? Cuz I'm gonna buy this skateboard that comes with bearings and they are ABEC 3 but there is another one that come with 5 but I really want the one that comes with 3.

ABEC 3 has three little balls in the bearing, the ABEC 5s have 5. ABEC 5s are stronger and faster. I would just get bones reds
