Likely, but I'd put normal pigment effect in the same category as bearings. Unless you go to extremes I'm not sure you can or will notice a difference.

I have two sets of Super Ds. One is natural and one fluro red. I can feel no noticeable difference between the sets. That doesn't mean there isn't one but just like human sensory perception there is a Just Noticeable Difference threshold that must be exceeded for reliable differentiation.

Maybe it's just me but...

Are you referring to the Race compound Shamans?? Those are natural, no pigment. The White Scotts I have are just that dyed white.

IT does, depend on the floor. If the floor is marginal, the pigment can make a difference apparent. The floors performance and wheel chemical makeup go hand in hand.
A friend sent me two sets of Scotts years ago, one set red, the other a grey color. Both were supposed to be same hardness but the grip was very different. The greys had almost no grip, the reds did fine. The greys would only grip on areas that had been low traffic, back corner areas. The reds hooked up everywhere.
Both had good roll. This test was done back to back within an hour and I switched back and forth during the session.

White Shaman 97a. I like naturals, the Tire is also naturals afaik. I am thinking that a lot of the skate floors where you and a lot of others skate are better kept than most floors I skate. Champions in Spring is going to do a complete sanding and recoat next week so it will be in great shape soon. And it is the best floor I skate on.

Champions is doing a much better job since the spring. I see the art teem sweep the floor every week. I've noticed my traction improve since they started sweeping it.
