It not that black & white in reality. It is much like cushions, some like them really soft and some hard for the same kind of skating. Then there are those that never try a different cushion or worse just follow the stupid weight charts. Over time those who never experiment will never know what works best for them.

My hats off to those who understand there are few hard rules when it comes to plates, cushions and wheels. Anyway you look at it the SKATER is
a HUGE unmeasurable factor at what he or she can do with their hardware.

I have a friend in Houston that had a setup built by Doc, she loves the way they work and recently asked about upgrading parts on the skates,but not the skates themselves. She has had them for 5 or 6 years

So, netplaceus was quoting larryoracing and ferocious somehow attributed doc as larryoracing, doc wasn't in the conversation, if netplaces wants to change arrogant to ornery, fine, but let's not label doc ornery when he's
A-not in the conversation
B-not dissing others

Just lack of comprehension.
