The overall range of tuning blows anything else away. 30 degree and true 45 degree plates have so much tuning ability to play with. My skates are still evolving. Looking at tall cones from Khiro now to setup in a new set of plates for my R4 boots. The standard SG cones are 1/2" tall and the barrels are app .550. The Khiro talls are .650 and the shorter Khiros are .450 advertised length dimensions. So changing the cushion base height is no biggie, just raise the cutter or try it on another old plate. Then mill out the final plates sets after testing.
