The Vesconite bearings are tested to out-last the traditional bearings (when properly aligned) up to 10X. There had to have been a serious alignment issue there. The one thing that the Vesconite does not show you (unlike the rubber bearings) is that when the alignment is off you can still turn the propeller quite freely due to the minimal friction.
