I think the yellow grippers are around 78a; so maybe too soft for a bigger, harder skating player with Sprungs. I think a set of Labeda Asphalts that haven't been used outside may be worth a shot on wood and possibly on the polished concrete (and if they're not grippy enough on the concrete you could always try the 83a Asphalts), but the World Cups aren't a bad idea either. 

Just wanted to post it here for the record, that yellow grippers are officially rated at 80a. (Since lot of people read this stuff for into, just wanted to make it easily accessible).

Freestyle dual pours are faster, grippier & much longer lasting than the pures.

Curiosity got the best of me so I ordered a set of MPC Freestyle wheels. Having never experienced dual pour wheels, the variation from wheel to wheel is very strange. For example, 3 of the 4 80mm wheels looks the same. One is slightly lighter in color, but not dramatically so. However, with the 76mm wheels, 2 of the 4 are noticeably lighter with one looking practically clear as though there’s no second material. Is this a manufacturing defect? 

Here’s a photo with the 2 lighter 76mm wheels on the top left and the 1 lighter 80mm wheel on the bottom left

I’ve never gone wheel crazy, but am looking forward to the R1’s arriving even more now! Will have my standard Labeda setup, the RR Tricksters, and the MPC Freestyle to try out

A  Rinkrat official told me that the unpigmentet soft PU is clear and the harder one is milky/misty/opaque. Do they differ in hardness? The pictures of resellers are looking like the left wheel in the upper row.

I did reach out to the manufacturer who advised me they were likely from two different batches which is why there may be a difference in color. Also assuring me that there is zero chance they are not perfect quality. Dubious claims as I find it hard to believe any QC would allow this much variance in the look of a product, but we’ll see once I start using them.

He did also state that harder PU is milky/cloudy like you mentioned. These wheels are all supposed to be the exact same except for size. It would make sense for the larger wheels with a larger core to appear darker. It does not make sense that wheels of the exact same specs would look so different. Regarding reseller photos, I seem to always come across these two:

Are you in the US? If so, where'd you pick those up?

Very nice purchase!

Mine were like that as well new but I just assumed it was how I held them under the light as they appeared light and dark in certain settings.

I never had an issue with quality or defects, in fact I’m still punishing my set and they’ve had no visible loss of grip.

When I first bought them I tested them with my A scale for fun anf each wheel was consistently around the 84A mark with nothing standing out.

its funny cause when I first got them I did coffee table test on them and they felt slippery.

I hesitated putting them on but when I did oh man it was awesome!

Im very excited to hear how they go for you, all my buddies that have bought these at my recommendation have had huge success too.
