    The difference is that you are asking which is better a Ford or a truck.

    608 is the standard industrial size spec for bearings used in skates and boards.

    Z indicates a shield.

    All bearings that will fit your board are 608.

    ABEC 3 is an industrial standard for tolerances in the bearing. Higher numbers indicate smaller tolerances and less vibration at high speeds (industrial speeds that are equivalent to a couple hundred miles per hour on your board.

    ABEC numbers are basically meaningless for skates and boards. There is more difference in quality between makers than in ABEC 1 and ABEC 7. The lubricant used in the bearing will have more effect on speed than different ABEC ratings.
