Default Orange Hyper Cannibals or Ruby Red Labeda Stilletos?

180 lbs. Coated concrete floor. Used to have a pair of the Stilletos, but hesitant on the Canns. And yes, I should be getting some Anabolix or Aussie Scott's instead, but looking for an opinion on the Canns vs Stilletos.

So, you post up on the evening of a US holiday and expect answers in just a few short hours?

I have never skated the Stillettos, but have skated the original green and orange Cannibals. Im not a fan of skating older wheels, even those that are still sealed in the package, as age is a factor on the urethane. Id say to go w/the Labedas, since theyre a newer wheel and at 180 pounds, the softer of the two compounds or maybe a mix of the two.

My rink floor worked great with Orange Cannibals for about a year. I weigh 185. Then the floor started getting more slick, as did the wheels which now have very worn grooves. But they were very fast and rolled long. About 6 months ago they started sliding too much when I speed skated, several seconds of 8 Wheel drift at each corner.

So I switched to Labeda Stilletos. Those took a while to break in, I let my daughter use them for about 6-8 sessions. When I put them back on, they were about perfect. Just the tiniest slide in speed, almost as fast as the Orange Cannibals. But I can tell they are a tad slower. I just needed their grip.

Wheels aren't that expensive, I'd get a pair of the Orange Cannibals and try them out. They are the most popular at my rink with the good skaters, several of us use them when the floor allows. Like most things, getting the most expensive, best available gives diminishing returns. If you get a $200 set of wheels, like a $200,000 Ferrari, it's just going to be a little bit better than something that costs much less.

Not even in the same league. Or at least the Orange Cannibals I had, Italian? with loose bearing bores.

Until I got Scotts the Stilettos were my favorite. I couldn't skate them in the winter. When the floor got cold they got slippery. Now the Scotts handle pretty much anything.

I once carried some Redline copies into Cascade in ATL since their floor is coated for slide. Figured I might need the extra traction. Wrong, the 97 Super Ds did great!
