These are not my plates, a kid at my rink broke these trucks, I bought him new ones.

I skate an Arius plate that has been modified a fair bit. Cut cushions, different axles, shims for the baseplate, press fit axis pin sleeves made of oilite(bronze) and removed the stabilization pins. While some people like to rag on that plate, I'm happy with it in the modified state I have it's super light weight very rigid and offers the most floor feedback. On the downside, it's very rough outdoors
