Bevo 608 ABEC 9, or labeda Swiss lite bearings?
i just bought vapor XR3 inline hockey skates, and the bearings slow down the wheels more than i would like, so i was wondering which of these is smoother with less friction. keep in mind that the shop that i am going to has all ABEC rated labedas + swiss lite, and only up to ABEC 9 for bevo.

Swiss bearings are much faster and smoother for skating. When my brother upgraded from the bevo abec 9s to the labeda swiss elite bearings, I noticed a significant change in his game.

The ABEC scale isn't very accurate for measuring how fast a board can go, hopefully we will one day get a scale that is accurate. You're Bone Swiss bearings probably do go faster, when you're riding your board, challenge him to a race, either you'll win or you got ripped off.
