Good luck.
That's right fellow.
Hans Brinker did have no problems with it, neither his girlfriend !
And one has to be careful with any one's culture!
Seems perfect for rollersoccer tough ,always dry and warm ,and one can really kick an ass
I'm gone try it with real Swiss bones bearings , and skate on the outdoor rink next to Ajax Amsterdam (Can only break some wood)

Hi Kev,,,,he has a 3loop but no fluz or flip,,,,working them but not ready for worlds of competition,,,,,,,,,he is going to worlds,,,,he took 2nd at our nationals behind Josh Rhoads,,,,,3rd place man Henry fell a bit or might have won.

my son Derick also skates world class mens singles but had to withdraw from nationals with a bad ankle sprain,,,landing foot,,,,,i think he would have made the team if he hadnt been injured,,,,he does 3 lutz, 3flip,,,3loop, 3 mapes, 3 toe walley and a 2 axle. also a good spinner, especially the heel.

yeah yeah, bunch of show offs, go ahead rub it in...

I'm to embarrassed to show my beaten up RB Lightning TF's

BTW how did you get them? Did you have to buy all of the components separate, or does someone have a package deal? I have the money, and I needs skates, but I don't know what to do!


One kid has cute dimples.

mark, baby, what's with the ounces?
This is an international forum.

My simmons/trurev/stargrips/minis weighs in at <ahem> 40 oz.

My focus on weight changed recently when I put blue matters on my indoor skates. It was like night and day. I'd be interested to hear what Leroy's weighs with the Matters. 6.7 oz is nothing to sneeze at, but it's a trade off too. The one thing I like about the 4x110 is you can still do the 100s or 104/105s and I think that is going to give a lot of people a lot of flexibility.

here ya go

46.5 oz = 1 318.25 grams
39.8 oz = 1 128.31 grams
40.0 oz = 1 133.98 grams

I'll weigh the boots and frames by themselves later today.

Other than the increased deck height from the frames (actually not any different to my Powerslide 4x100 Visions, but much higher than my TruRevs)

I'll have to weigh my skates. I do know that the Matter wheels weigh 20 grams less than the MPC wheels. 138g to 158g. If Mark put Matters on, his skates would weigh 80 grams (2.88 oz.) less or around 1238 grams. Only about 100g more than the 5x90 TR/SG/mini bearing setup.

For half my life football == soccer. It is really hard to break that mental link.

Some pretty large bubble holes in each of those wheels, there Mark. For $13 each, I'd expect damn-near perfect wheels.

Hey, they worked nice at the rink All the kids who tried it felt that they were slipping. One even said that 110s were too much.
