Question SEBA Rockered frame?

I've been doing some wheel rockering and overall it feels good for me.
Been thinking about the Seba rockered frame (or similar), so I could switch the wheels using the standard scheme.

I wonder if any of you have experience with the frame and could comment on this vs wheel rockered setup.

For me the difference seems to be minimal. I prefer the rockered frame. Not enough to buy one at full price, but enough to justify the price difference. When getting new skates you can negotiate for the shop to swap a flat frame for a rockered one. Many places charge just the price difference.

I usually skate with 76-80-80-76 on the deluxe rockered frame (doubling the effect). I also have the flat version and use the same nominal wheel sizes on it (but I do look for the most worn ones in my drawer for the front/back axles). I never skate with a flat configuration, thus the flat frame offers no advantage to me. But it isn't much of an inconvenience either.

With time you will have more wheels. The more wheels you have, the less important it is to follow strict rotation schemes.

It's all personal preference.

Prerockered frames are SLIGHTLY longer than flat frames. For myself, I'm around 172cm tall and skate a size 40EU shoe. I usually use the 76-80-80-76 configuration, but the 243 prerockered is far too long for me (80-80-80-80). The 231 prerockered is OK, but I went with a flat slalom frame of 238mm in the end.

1+ KevO, it's all personal preference. I find the pre-rockered frame eliminates a lot of wheel hassles. I wear a size 39 skate but prefer a size 231 frame. I also have a pair of size 40 skates, but I find the size 243 frame is way to long for tricks (especially toe tricks). I think it's just what you get used to.

What size boot do you wear?
