The Gold Eagle is a titanium coated chrome steel bearing with 10 gold chrome balls and steel retainer.
Do not confuse this bearing with other cheaper gold bearings found on Ebay!
This bearing has strong feedback and above average spin time. Unique feels are delivered upon changing of axis. The Golden Eagle creates a very pleasant "ringing" sound especially in a Ti spinner. Tolerances are comparable to a shielded bearing but have a feel all of their own. Not only does it spin great but it also has a classy high end look!
This bearing works in most press/slip fit spinners with loc tite....
*May not fit Woosah R188 spinners easily. This Golden Eagle is a fraction of a millimeter taller than most common R188s. I was able to to fit it in the Woosah but the O ring really had to be shoved into the slot.
**This bearing does NOT fit the Trillium spinner***
I just got a report from Spin Fam of a Golden Eagle getting stuck in a Woosah Ohana spinner which resulted in damage to the bearing retention lip when trying to remove it with a bearing tool. We initially put just a warning in the description because a few from the community were able to use this bearing in their Woosah spinners, but due to this incident we do NOT recommend the Golden Eagle for the Woosah brand spinner. If looking for feedback for your Woosah we recommend the FZ Manhattan hybrid or a Full ceramic R188 from our line up. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED IF THIS MESSAGE IS DISREGARDED.
Cleaning: This bearing can be cleaned in high ISO. An immediate and thorough drying with a hair dryer on cool is highly recommended.
