Hey Curtis,

Reading this reply of yours

OK It sounds like you and I do this similar me with a softer wheel. Usually I don't skate bat out of hell when it is crowded with weak skaters yet you might skate faster. Anyway I almost never do a Hard T-Stop-SlowDown. I do a T-Slow Down half hard then I might do a Lateral to the Inside or a Sideways to get around the obstacle.

About the same yet I would put it at 130 to 140. I have played with tipping up the skate and using the outside edges.
