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.

Default Durable outdoor build similar to indoor build?

Hello DocSk8!

I really need some help here. Iíve had my dream skates for a few years now (Riedell 195 Redline, Labeda Proline, Rollerbones Turbo 88a, Bones Ceramic) and simply love them. Theyíre a dream on the maple floor, although I still havenít found quite the ideal insole yet (Superfeet so far, but thatís another issue...). Hereís a link to them if youíre curious, Iím still proud of them! Jam'N'Speed West built them.

Anyway, the issue I have now is that my boys have discovered scooting at the skate park, and today I took my quads with me. I had an absolute blast and was surprised how quickly I got used to going up and down the hills. I would have been more daring, but my Proline has a mirror finish on it, my boot has no scuffs on it, and Iíd like to keep it that way.

I want to get a ďskate parkĒ skate thatís really geometrically similar to my 195/Redline skates. Iím open to any boot as long as it doesnít have a heal (I know youíre fond of Bont boots, Iíve been team Riedell my whole life but am game to trying something new). Iíve also skated on a Reactor or Proline for a lot of years, but am not averse to a nylon plate as long as itís not 45 degrees.

Iíd like to spend the minimum to get me to the geometry Iím used to, and have a secret hope that youíll recommend something that I end up liking even more!

TLDR: Need a boot/plate recommendation for something that can take a beating, similar to 195/Proline.

I really appreciate the time you take to help us!
