  1. I dug my 1997 Bauer "Breakout 50s" out from the back of a closet a few weeks ago. They're actually not bad, although I have nothing to compare them to. The wheel setup (that I don't remember doing) is 76-76-76-72, which felt OK, but kind of like skis compared ice runners...and they feel like they weigh about 10 lbs, each. Got some wheels in various sizes and changed to 72-76-76-72, which feels better and allows tighter turns. All the wheels I bought are 78A, because that seems like a good match on the rough-but-sealed concrete deck where I skate. Slightly softer could work well too, but I definitely wouldn't want anything harder with any less grip. (I'm 185 lbs.) I don't plan on playing roller hockey...just want to continue skating until the rinks open up again and keeping my mechanics as close to skating on ice as possible. The deck I skate on is roughly the dimensions of half an ice-rink neutral zone (split in half lengthwise...so blue line to blue line and boards to center face-off dot). I can do some drills, but I already run out of space quickly, so not looking for faster wheels...thinking that 68-72-72-68 might be optimal for my situation. Both boots are quickly developing cracks after sitting in a closet for 20+ years, so I ordered a couple of pairs of skates in case I decide to put the Marsblades I ordered on one of them instead of on one of my old Lange boots. One of them is Bauer RS and the other is Alkali 2, (only because every place I looked was already out of lower-end models and the seller upgraded me to the A2s after notifying me that the Tour Code 3.ones I actually ordered first were sold out). The Bauers come with (harder 82A) 72-72-68-68 and the Alkali come with 80-80-76-76 Konixx Tachyon (+0) "Indoor" wheels...both have Hi-Lo frames. I can't find any reference to what KT +0 corresponds to on the traditional durometer scale, but I'm assuming they're something like 76A or 74A. Questions: 1. Can I rocker Hi-Lo frames with 68-72-72-68 or 72-76-76-72? Any reason for me to stick with the Hi-Lo setup, instead? 2. The stock 80-80-76-76 will be faster and less maneuverable than the stock 72-72-68-68, right? 3. 76-80-80-76 will be a little slower but less stable than both of those rockered setups, right? 4. Probably 68-72-72-68 would be best for my needs, based on the info above, right? 5. How do the Marsblade FMT Ones compare with the Alkali R2s in case I decide to skate on the Bauers and have the MB put on the AR2s? 6. For you other dinosaurs, do you think Lange boots will support roller frames? Because it seems like roller frames put a lot more stress on the soles than ice holders (because the ice-steel load on the boot is distributed much wider and with less torque than the load from roller frames even though the ice steel itself is much thinner) and the Lange soles seem to be much thinner and much less reinforced than even the soles on my 1997 Bauer inlines. @pettererlandsson I know you said we can ask you anything about MB, but you've probably never seen Langes, right? Any other advice and/or suggestions (other than "just try them all out and see") would be welcome. Thanks in advance.
  2. Let me know if you've heard of @ByonicSkateBlades and your thoughts on skate blades in general. Check us out www.bbyonic.com.
  3. Hi guys, On my APX2 skates, i have changed all wheels, because they are totally used. Have you tips for prepare wheels for hockey ? I know they will hook the floor, and I will can't brake fastly for a moment. Thanks for your answers.
  4. I fancy trying some rink rat wheels out. The identity theft are around the same price as the grippers which I have found to be OK. Only other rink rat I have used have been the hot shot that came on my old AC4 skates and they actually lasted without splitting. All Labeda and revision wheels I have ever used have split very early into their life. Anybody used the theft and grippers can comment? I would love to be able to rotate a wheel without it splitting/chunking away before it actually starts showing signs of wear. I play a mix of tile and wood floor and have a set of addiction signatures which I only use on the tiles but I want a more all round wheel that is more hard wearing for wood floor indoor only use. Anybody used bith? The theft and gripper?
  5. Hey guys, first post here. I play on a fairly small rink (the JCC in Michigan), which means I'm turning more often and lose speed on the turns. I'm currently skating on Hornet Splits. What wheels do you reccommend I switch to, in order to maintain speed on fast turns? Thanks
  6. Hey there everyone, I recently got Labeda Addiction (orange) wheels from someone and the previous owner has really ruffed them up. Perhaps, they were used on a rough hard surface - your about to see the aftermath. My question is will I be putting myself at risk rolling on these wheels to just pop off the hub/chunk/or split? I mean the damage looks to be minor in a way but I've never had a wheel that looked like this... I primarily skate indoors on smooth surfaces. I don't think there would be much of a risk if I used them for indoor rink skating? or would there? Thanks guys!!
  7. PIC 1 PIC 2 I just bought a brand new pair of Bauer XR3s and my wheels started falling apart (as pictured) the first time I rolled on them. I weigh 165 pounds. What the hell?! I emailed Bauer 4 days ago, no response yet.
  8. Height/Weight: 6'1/175 Age:17 Level: Gold Bantam, Playing up in Midgets, D4 Mens Overview: This is my first wheel review, so bear with me! I skate around 4 times a week, including a practice with a lot of hard skating. I am not the best skater for my level, I mostly rely on my stickahndling and shot more than speed and agility. I have skated on Labeda Millenniums in both soft and x-soft and am Skating them on Mission T8 boots with a Magnesium Hi-Lo chassis and BSB Swiss bearings Fit: I thought I should include this, since it seems to be a problem to me with Milleniums. The bearing doesnt sit flush in the hub of them, which causes rubbing on the chassis during hard turns. These wheels don't have this problem, and fit around the bearing perfectly. Aesthetics: I love the look personally. Some people think they are flashy, and I understand that. The Black and white wheels are somewhat flashy. I had black/whites, but am now on the LE yellow/whites. They are much less flashy and match my skates, which adds to the aesthetics for me. 10/10 Grip: Just what I expect on a high end wheel. Some people cannot, but I can tell a huge difference between wheels. These have a flex to them, and you can feel it during a really hard cutting turn. I lose my grip and slide out very rarely compared to skating on the Millenniums. They also slide out when I want them to, allowing me to get sideways for a hard stop, while still gripping when engaging hard pressure again. Definitely a great aspect of the wheel. 10/10 Durability: Awesome. I havent skated on Addictions, but at this point, I don't really want to. These wheels last 3 months without even showing many large cracks or splits. I get the same amount of wear in a month if im lucky with soft millenniums. With the grip they provide its surprising how long they last. After they start to wear, though, they do lose grip somewhat quickly. 10/10 Overall: Amazing wheels! I feel that they justify the price, though that may depend on the persons budget. Definitely a noticeable jump in performance and durability from Millenniums. Awesome looking wheel, awesome performance, awesome durability. 10/10
