Yes, going softer on cushions is smart, but won't help unless you also, more importantly, go firmer on the wheel duro.

The Avenger plates should still maintain adequate grip for you using decent wheels in the low 90's duro range, and even with their keeping wheels down on floor more, they should be able to break free from the floor enough to do the plow stops with some chatter.

I have some yellow cushions, will switch those out.

In some ways it just feels counter-intuitive to use harder (i.e. slicker) wheels when all I'm already doing is sliding during my plows, no?

I will take the suggestion though and borrow some wheels from a friend and go skate around tonight to see how it feels.
