True statement assuming it's 1982. There are indeed better bearings made. The Qube 8 ball is a pretty good knockoff of the Fafnir. Hard to beat Bones Swiss. There are others.

Fafnirs wear. I have a set that will no longer bear my weight well. They're worn and slow. And I took above average care of them.
