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

Default Recommended plates / kingpin angles?

I used to shuffle/dance skate, but have been out of action for awhile, and my skates no longer fit due to a bunion. I'm having new skates built, and am wondering...

What plates do people recommend? What kingpin angle?

Yes, I've read a number of threads on here about 10 vs 20 vs 45 degree action, mainly in the derby forum, and none of it recent. I used to skate on Snyders, so I'm guessing those were 10 degrees. I have a friend recommending 20 degrees, as he thinks 45 would be too unstable for me. I do have a tendon injury in one leg, so I'm likely to have less stability than I used to have.
