Default How can you tell the difference between Roll Line Matrix steel vs Titanium?

No I won't have a scale with me.
I'm looking to buy someone's Roll Line Matrix off the internet, going to meet with them next week to look at the setup and maybe buy. I know they're selling a Matrix but I don't know if it's steel or titanium. How will I know just by looking at it? Or do I need to ask?

the steel only refers to axles I think,,,,,usually steel ones are a silvery color, titanium should be a blue or darker green or something if I remember. good luck, also ask and look at others. also can be kingpins

The Titanium has "Titanium" written on the trucks.

Titanium is non magnetic.(well paramagnetic)

Get yourself a magnet. If the magnet sticks to axles they're steel.

The plate will be ergal aluminum
The truck and axle and axle nuts will be titanium, dark grey, Mort's correct, a neodymium magnet shouldn't be attracted, good luck.

I think the nuts are still steel, but it would be cool if they were Ti!
