they are pretty much all the same thing; shell, bearings, axle and bolts
if you want somerhing durable for grinds get gsport, odyssey or shadow

I like my demolition bulimia. It's been holding up well. I actually learned smiths on it. It's a regular male axle, but it's heat treated, and it's lighter than pretty much anything else on the market. Also it's only like $40 and has hub guards you can get for it.

Just buy a new axel. Be sure it is a grade 8 or 9. Unless you 100% destroyed the hub you are learning and still have a hub. Replacement axel will run you $10-15 new hub $50+ and then you have to get spokes unless yours are fine (and the right length) and then lace it. You can also go to a machine shop and they can set you up with a female axel for around $25. I have done both and the female was the best choice.

I like my Gsport Roloway so far, held up to some grinds, some hang 5 attempts. So far it is solid.

Knee is tight and swollen internally, so I am out for a bit, but once I am back I will hit it hard and let you know with a review.

Gsport hubs have super strong axles but they roll like shit. Get the animal hub, it will hold up to grinding and roll better than a gsport.
