*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Ask DocSk8 (Expert Indoor Skate Building Advice) This forum is different then the other SkateLog forums in that it is not a discussion forum, but rather a place you can ask skate building expert Fred "DocSk8" Benjamin about building and repairing indoor speed, derby, and jamskate quad roller skates. Please start a new thread for each new question.

Question Youth / Jr Plate sizing issues

These are on their way to CHSC Floor Guard's little guy Charlie who is already quite the sk8r.
What was the size on this plate?

I ask because I'm contemplating a new build for my size J13 spawn. I know that I want to use a Bont Jr Hybrid boot, but am still trying to figure out what plate/truck I want to use.

This is what my research has unearthed so far:
My build constraints are that they need to fit a fairly small boot (obviously), but I also want them to be super-light (without resorting to chopping down a $300 Laser plate).

At this point I'm considering any of the less-than-$50 nylon/fiberglass/plastic plates that might accept Sure-Grip's generic nylon replacement trucks ( https://www.skates.com/Generic-Nylon...ars-p/gnsh.htm or https://www.skates.com/Sure-Grip-Nyl...s-p/sgnrst.htm , though I can't honestly wrap my head around wjhat the difference between these two is ) , which limits me to the Bont Ignite and the PowerDyne Thrust - though I'm nervous about geometry/action-angle incompatibilities.

Do you happen to know if the 95 and/or 105 Ignites actually exist, and if so, would their 16 degree angle be too far out-of-whack for SG's nylon trucks?

Those look awesome!

That said, she's not yet confident enough for an NTS skate. I hadn't looked into Boens though... I really need to be looking for current production products .

105mm.

The sk8s in the pic are a 13J.

This is what my research has unearthed so far:
My build constraints are that they need to fit a fairly small boot (obviously), but I also want them to be super-light (without resorting to chopping down a $300 Laser plate).

The difference is one is a set of 4 with axle nuts and the other is a a bare truck with no axle nuts...at least that is what I can interpret from their listings. I sure as heck don't think they fit in the Power Dyne stuff properly however. Big difference between going on and fitting properly.

Do you happen to know if the 95 and/or 105 Ignites actually exist, and if so, would their 16 degree angle be too far out-of-whack for SG's nylon trucks?

Just get the whole Ignite plate. No reason to goof with alternate trucks. Just specify the soft cushions.
