The new bearing compatibility list is now live, check it out here!
Cage bearings that allow more balls to be placed around the knife pivot than standard cage bearings. Which provides more support for the blade and decreasing stress on each ball. The ceramic balls are captured in the disc but are still free floating to prevent binding.
Includes Grade 5 ceramic bearings pre-installed.
- 22% increased blade support over caged bearings of same size
- Improved ball pathing around pivot
- Less pivot screw tightening required
- CNC machined from solid phosphor bronze
- One set equals two individual cage bearings
..and that word is... YES!!! These things are absolutely freaking fantastic. It's bad when I look at the compatibility list for Skiff bearings before I buy a knife!
These bearings make my Hinderers feel like a completely different knife.
Bearings fit perfect with no issues. I was actually surprised at how much better these made my XM 18 3.0. Being that it is a smaller blade I did not think it would ever be a "fall shut" kind of knife. But these bearings made the actions insanely good! I think I'll be putting skiff's in every knife I have with bearings.
Makes my xm18 fly open and drop shut better than original bearings when tuned just right. Feels smoother also.
I put these in 4 of my favorite Hinderers (3 XM-18s and an Eklipse), and they smooth out what is already outstanding action on Hinderer knives and make it even better. Best upgrade you can do for a great price! I will buy a lot more of these in the future!
