Do they roll like 93 or faster. I have a set of the powerplus which are 93 and think they roll pretty decent for that soft

Why either of them ?

I don't trust older hubs at all. Newer shaman hubs are very precise, so I vote them if that's the only option.

There's bigger and better stuff out there

Well in that case,going off of the info from (fierocous1)the green shamans might be best for you depending on your floor conditions.

I agree with this, but not because of the hubs. Urethane changes over time and usually only a NOS or grind will get them back. Since NOS wheels are usually in the price range of a set of Scott's wheels. I'd opt for the newer and better engineered Scott's.

My $.02.

Default New Cannibals working

I really like the Shamans my wife found for me at a thrift store, that I think are the old version Greens, they seem fairly hard. I need harder wheels, but I didn't want to spring for a set of White Shamans yet, for my "good" pair of speed skates. I weigh 190.

So I just got some Orange Cannibals for Christmas. I'm really liking them, they don't slide, unless I really make them. I'm one of the faster speed skaters at my session, and these are the wheels I was hoping for.

Someone (doc?) said the Orange Cannibals are basically White Shaman's that have been dyed. If that's the case and maybe that's why the OP asked about the same hardness in the Shaman and Cannibal line, I'd just go with the cheaper. Unless color is your goal, then you'll pay $30 more for Green. Are they or aren't they the same wheels, with different graphics on them and different dye urethane?

I am really liking the Red Demirojo from Faster Wheels 92/96A combo. I am alot heavier then I used to be (like 230-40) but this wheel gives me good stiffness and grip. I have alot of confidence when I plant my foot it will stay if I want it to stay or slide if I want it to slide.

And they look cool, reminds me of my old Labeda Fanjets!

I have a set of Black Zombies 92 but haven't tried them as replacements to my Black Power Plus 93a. I spun the hub on the power plus's but really loved those wheels. Before the Black PP+ I was only using Red the were extremely grippy on terrazo and some wood sheet floor, both were typical rink coat blue.

I love my Green Shamans. They grip to almost all floors I skate on. Lufkin is iffy when it's cold. Looking into White Shamans for the grippy floors. Right now, Champions is newly coated and the White Shamans would be awesome.
