I was also a rink kid in the 70s/80s. Wheel hardness depends a lot on the floor conditions. To me, I like a fair amount of grip. I used the Goldie Locks method from 88a to 98a, and settled with 94a RBTs (until I found Aussie 95a). I'm sure I could do better slides and spins with a harder wheel, but if I feel the wheels break free, I get uneasy. I have my comfort level, and it's all about having fun skating. If you like the 96a, feel free to stick with them and enjoy! (while saving up for some Aussie Scotts)
