DEEP SPACE - SHIELDED - 10 BALLS - Si3N4 - HYBRID CERAMIC - R188ZZ
Notice: All the characteristics described below, (except for "specs") are based on our personal opinions only. Features such as "speed" or "sound" may vary drastically, depending on which spinner you are spinning and on each person. Please, keep that in mind once you read the characteristics below :)
The Deep Space is our first offering of a R188ZZ type of bearing which has a protection on both sides (shields) which covers the races, cage and balls helping reduce the chances of dust or lint falling inside. The good thing is that if that ever happens, it can still be cleaned successfully with a compressed air can (duster) too. It has a very satisfying whir, with a nice touch of a satisfying "metallic" low sound, and a very nice haptic feedback. Tolerance is excellent.
* Feedback: Unique and very satisfying haptic.
* Sound: Nice and low "ceramic sound" with a touch of a sweet "metallic" like sound.
* Speed: Feels fast.
* Tolerance: "5" in a scale from 0 - 5, being 0 loose, and 5 tight)
* R188ZZ - Shielded both sides with SS.
* 10 Balls - Ceramic Silicon Nitride (Si3N4 aka Black Balls)
* Hybrid Ceramic (SS+Ceramic)
* SS Dual Ribbon Cage
Notice 2: Please notice that we do a sample test of a few bearings for each type of bearing offered in our shop once we receive them from the manufacturer, although it is unfeasible for us to fully test all bearings from our inventory. However we do visually check every single one of them before they ship as well as test them for tolerance and give them a quick spin too.
Some bearings may be a bit dusty or gritty once you receive them, or sometimes they may present small marks or tiny dings on the edges of the races (specially for full ceramic ones due to the brittleness of the material), but they should not have any mechanical faults.
For bearings that you may feel that are "dusty", please use a compressed air can on the bearing while holding it with a straw. Make sure to make the bearing spin as fast as possible for around 5 seconds. That should be enough to get rid of any tiny particles, dust or lint that may be sitting between the bearing balls and cage. We do not recommend the use of liquids or soap for any bearings.
If you encounter small marks like nicks and dings around the edges of the races, please know that we consider that as normal since it should not affect the performance of the bearing in any way.
At this time, we do NOT offer refunds for bearings (unless there is clear mechanical or manufacturing fault upon receiving them) and all orders are final. If you have any questions please email us or visit our “Refund & Return Policy" page.
