I have a set of both and I am switching back and forth to see if I can say, definatively, weather or not there is an increase in distance. The steel set has yellow oil (it's about 40 to 52 degrees here now, or I'd be using red oil) and the ceramic bearings have a wisper and I mean a wisper of tournament oil in them. I am initially trying to see if I can, for sure, come off the magnets more with the Steel bearings on the initial setting. So far in two days testing, with a tail wind they are about the same. Is anyone else experimenting?
