  1. All aboard! Jumping on the konixx pure train here. I’ve owned a number of other wheels, mostly labeda, and their performance is better then all those. Also very noteable, they do not crack for me anywhere near as easy as other wheels have, so they’ve lasted longer.
  2. I don’t know your skates very well, but I’d assume it’s an easy convert. the main differences between an ice boot and a roller boot typically are that an inline boot will have more ventilation (toe cap etc) and many times better wear resistance on the sides due to the abrasion roller skates will take. The rest of the recommendations will likely depend on what your end goal is for these skates and usage, but they should be good as long as you like how they fit
  3. I’m ok with the format. The league was quite bunched up for the last playoff spots, especially when you count the uneven amount of games played by teams. The only team that is part of this bracket that I don’t believe had a real legitimate shot of making the playoffs in a full season was Montreal, and Chicago would’ve had a hard path as well. I think a better system in my opinion would’ve been 11 teams, with 5 guaranteed slots and 6 teams playing in the play in round.
  4. I’ve been using their one piece sticks for a while now. Impressed for the price, currently my go to for roller hockey as I love the customization options and that I can get them already to size
  5. Hello Petter! do you know if True is going to offer the marsblade on their custom boots by any chance? Looking to try that combo out!
  6. The main negative is the footbed isn’t quite as comfortable. I think it’s probably because of the overall rigidity of the chassis and pushing in to the foot. I can wear my ice version all day with no discomfort, the inline there’s a slight bit (still better than my previous skates). The boot itself also feels more rigid but it’s probably more just how bottom heavy they are, common of most inline skates. that said, worth the purchase to me, especially given how few retail boots there are and that I haven’t found a fit amongst them that I’m comfortable with yet.
  7. Yeah that’s the FMT skates. The shop I’ve bought my true skates from said that True has made with the mars blade roller chassis before, but that also could’ve been when you can send in a chassis for them to mount before they had their own thing, so he’s clarifying through True for me
  8. My original hesitation was I am looking In to wether they will be available as an option for True inline skates. I think the original mars blade was offered by true. I was just gonna get them for that price though in case I like them so much and want to convert my existing inline skates over so that I can have the same off-road and on road experience maybe @Marsblade knows?
  9. I have both ice and inline trues. I like the inline ones a lot! But not as much as I love the ice ones, but it’s also harder to find stock inline skates that fit well due to less options available.
  10. Damn! What was it at before? Meant to check out a few days ago and totally got side tracked. Still may check it out, not interested in the wheels and bearings as I prefer my konixx and bones.
  11. no, this is the one i was thinking about. theres a few other smaller threads too. probably a bit to sift through since its a pretty general thread, but maybe you will find something.
  12. Base has its own thread you can search for. Ton of info on there
  13. Love the pouch, have one, but the shift steel has a part that sticks up taller than the zipper so it cannot he zipped shut. Could potentially look into replacing the zipper with some other closure system, but I also work around lots of nice 3D printers and foam so making my own wouldn’t be too hard either.
  14. Anyone know a good steel holder that fits the shift steel? Thinking about 3D printing one if nothing easy enough exists on the market
  15. Have the same issue with my a6.0 stick as well as a shaft I have of theirs. Both super gummy.
  16. I think the confusion is stemming from you possibly quoting the wrong post. He’s talking about the difference between p90t and p90tm, so showing pictures of p28, p29 and p90t isn’t going to show that difference
  17. Personally im a bit nervous on the pure-x since I love the pure so much that I’d hate for them to change considerably, but will be holding out for them instead of stocking up, hoping their “new and improved” means just that. They haven’t let me down yet so we will see
  18. Not sure I agree here. With these smaller companies first impression is often everything, perhaps they are just waiting to make sure the product is solid before releasing it to the masses
  19. There’s some advantage to roller players too who eat through the bottom of blades quicker than normal
  20. For my entire life ages 7-35 I taped the whole top because up until 25 I almost solely used wood or aluminum sticks without grip coating, plus it was what the pros did, and for the next ten years I just taped it out of habit. Then Two years ago I saw some pro players with just their top knob portion taped, and decided to give it a try. It’s been much easier on the hands, and just made more sense to me to just cut out the extra work and use the stick’s grip coating.
  21. Yes. The rx3 is from the surgeon 500 and the hpr is from the stallion 500 (I think that was black and yellow). I wasn’t much of a fan of the original surgeon 500, in terms of comfort, but love the rx3. I don’t think the two lines look very similar, outside some of the basic construction materials, as the HPR is much more beefed up protection wise. If you want the highest mobility I’d go with RX3.
  22. The hpr line is not now the RX3, they are two separate lines (surgeon line on rx3, stallion HPR) HPR is their more protective (think tacks/supreme protective) and RX3 is their “more mobility” line with lighter weight (vapor/rbz)
  23. I’m not in the industry, but I’m assuming retailers would like to know what kind of floor space they are going to need for displays/how they will display the product ahead if time. It even says that the artwork etc is not final, so even if you had that inclination, at this point you’re just potentially spreading misinformation, like what happened here. if you value your relationship with a supplier, you should also value their confidentiality, plain and simple. Just because there are some shady dealers out there doesn’t have to mean you hamstring valuable information to the whole.
