3) I also had misadjusted pivot pins

I donít use the synders anymore and my spins suffer. Have not got use to the new skates yet.

But I will say this, the new skates are easier on my knees. I think the truck action is less stressful on the joints.

I might go back to the synders but for now Iím sticking with my new skates. I just need to get some boots that fit right. I think I need to measure my feet and get the exact size needed for them, instead of guessing on the size and width.

u want to make sure all your adjustments are right, especially the pivot pin that will break or bend any king pin on any plate if out of adjustment. good luck with the new plates
