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.

Very true.
Find some roller derby girls. Don't try to romance them! That don't end well. okie 10/12/2011
