Re: Decisions Decisions; Supreme Turbo 33 or SFR Raptor 76

I was surprised to see that you initially asked this question on a forum like SLF. The fact that you've posted your question again on here suggests that you're still looking for answers, so I'll throw in my tuppence worth. Firstly, comfort is in the foot of the beholder :mrgreen: so no one can reall...

Re: Why skate backwards?

I skate backwards up hills all the time (including very steep ones). Strangely, I find it less tiring than going up forwards. I've taught a few other people how to do it too (after they saw me doing it at speed). The key to my particular technique (on quads, naturally) is having a strong enough cros...

Re: Where to find Jam Plugs in the UK?

It's a great web site Stan, and a much needed service because it has been pretty much impossible to get 5/16" threaded plugs in this country (and importing from the US is so expensive). For those of you who don't already know, there's also a Fronts Jamplugs Facebook group, where you can ask que...

Re: Eastbourne Extreme: 14 - 15 July 2012

I don't know whether it's just me but, compared to last year, Extreme seems to be really low-key with very little promotion taking place. Perhaps people are not bothering because they're expecting the worst (having seen last year's appalling weather render the 2011 event a total washout). The main E...

What's the grip like on the Radar Energy?

The wheel has all the attributes that I happen to look for, so it would be perfect for me if it also had serious grip.

Re: Hyper rollo vs new SIMS indoor grip and offset

Does the radius of the outer shoulder affect the grip wheels provide? Only in as much as it alters the contact surface area between wheel and floor. A lot of wheels that are specifically designed for grip use a lip (rather than a radiused edge) in order to maximise floor contact. However, the natur...

Re: Newbe- Hi and Which Skates?

There's little difference between the boots performance-wise. Ventro uses slightly stiffer material for the shell than the Supremes, so they offer more support and are possibly a little more durable than the Supremes. However, the firmer shell can be more restrictive (especially if you lace them all...

Re: Quad skaters - soft v hard wheels for indoors?

I have only skated quads once before I started last October, when I was about 15, and I didn't get on with it. Ah, I see. When you said to me that you'd skated when you were 15, I thought it was more than just one time. I only get to rink it once a week, sometimes twice. I usually only skate 3 time...

Re: Quad skaters - soft v hard wheels for indoors?

Actually I've heard the opposite - that the twisters become even slippier when the grooves are worn off. That's what I've heard too (about several brands of grooved wheel). I've also read comments online about people getting their wheels re-grooved (after they've worn down) in order to re-instate g...
