Default Laser Skate Plate vs Suregrip Avenger Plate

I wanted to make this post for future skaters, since I would have loved to find such a post when I was doing my google searching.

I got back into skating in the summer of 2017 after some 25 years. Like many, I wanted to build my old setup, so I went with all the old school goodies including a Laser SA setup. The only things different were I didn't have Fafnir bearings and my Labeda Turbo's..

After months of trying every hard to find OEM cushion and adjustment I could muster, I finally got my skates to roll in a manner I felt confident on. But I never had the level of confidence or agility I remember having.

Yesterday, I built me a second set of skates. Pretty much same everything, except this time I went with a Suregrip Avenger DA45 plate, the lighter mag one. I only had to adjust the skates one time after hitting the floor.

The difference between the two plates is like comparing the suspension of a 1970 VW Bug to that of a 2019 Porsche 911 GT3. Seriously. It's like my whole skating experience has changed.

So if you stumble across this post, do yourself a favor. Ditch the nostalgia and get a modern setup..
