Quad 1 - Deke

Recommended Posts

Profile: Quad 1, with all 20mm of built-in pitch/offset removed

Steel: Step Steel in Mako CXN holder

Hollow: FBV 90/75

About me: In my 60's and have played since high school. Good skater playing 3 to 4 drop-ins per week during the the winter months only.

Baseline: CXN Steel with unknown "speed" Quad from well known shop. Short radius at toe, very long radius at the heel. Very (over) pitched. They were stable but not remarkably fast. Mobility was limited and acceleration was poor.

Quad 1 Review: I needed just a little bit of time to adjust to the neutral profile after coming from the overly pitched baseline profile. The result for the Quad 1 is quick off the line, excellent mobility, with good speed and stability. Top speed can be limited unless you delay the toe-off. Great all around profile! Wow! I could stop right here but I am going to try the Quad 2 and see where that goes.

Edit: Backward feels great on these. I would probably give the same ratings below for both forward and back.

Acceleration: 4

Mobility: 5

Speed: 4

Stability 4
