Default Well now.

I build a lot of derby sk8s. I would put a 140mm (Size 1) Avenger on that size boot, but I actually would not go with that boot. I have seen a lot of soles wrap around the plates @ the front. The Falcon + is right decent but last I looked the cushion selection was not that great.

I typically build Bonts w/ Avengers. Have not seen much need to change.

The Falcon + is OK. Dig around in the Quad forum, I review them when they first came out..

I am no fan of the Antic Boot. Heavy and like I said, I have soles wrap around the plates in the front.

No problem.... The sole starts to sag over time and rolls over the outer edge of the plate. Now, I will admit not all I have seen have done that. Quite frankly any leather sole boot could do that.

If that does not help, I'll try again.
