Just got a spintastics spinabolo pro one way bearing diabolo today and when i used it it tends to go against the one way on the orbit acceleration and a lot of other tricks and makes kind of a raspy sound is this normal just want to make sure its okay so i can send it back with the diabolo bag if it is broken

bearings normally make the saw sound dont worry.
yeah thats the idea of the name "on way" - it spins to only 1 direction.
also its nearly impossible to do the elevator with bearings.

In addition to increasing spin time, they also have a much different feel to them.  Doing things like antisuns or changing the direction of satellites has been easier for me with a bearing diabolo, due to the decreased friction-- you don't have a diabolo trying to undo everything you're doing.
