I just got these pedals today:
Eclat Slash CNC Alloy Pedals

I have yet to put them on my bike but when I spin them with my hand I feel like the bearings are very rough and are grinding as I turn them, when I try to spin them around I get maybe half a rotation
Is this normal with new pedals, or did I get a bad set of bearings?

the bearings aren't sealed according to what he webpage says. so your pedals bearings must have gotten something inside of them beforehand. you should be fine

This is common with unsealed pedals. They aren't worn in yet and theyre very tight. They will loosen up in a few weeks and then need to be tightened again.
