Date Reviewed: September 22, 2010

Strengths:    heavy duty, good price

Weaknesses:    caged bearing spider sometimes drops ball bearings which is like pretty stupid

Bottom Line:   
the regular 1-1/8 Pig has bigger ball bearings and wont drop any ball bearings (most of the time) This one does. Its annoying. The caged ball bearings are NOWHERE the size of his lil bro, the 1-1/8.

Save up some MONEY and buy the FSA ORBIT XTREME PRO 1.5. Its a lot like the PIG PRO. It has the cartridge bearings which will last longer.
