Default Should I have regrets? American Patriots.

Just ordered some American Patriot indoor wheels just in case the outdoor season passes me by while my burn heals (just happened last week. is on my leg where my skates lace up: figure skating boots).

Did I make an error? Are there floors I should avoid?

Thank you for any input on the topic you might have, and I welcome advice on other beginner-friendly wheel brands.

Why of course you should have regrets. I mean, living in Canada and buying American Patriot wheels. Never mind, we are allies.

I've never heard of these, but a 97 on the hardness scale should be just fine for the average wood floor. For a plastic coated floor, they may feel a bit slippery.

Keep us informed. I'd be interested in the performance of a less expensive wheel.

I will do my best to come back and make a full report when able. Thank you for adding to my knowledge.

I was tempted by their colour selection. Clear blue with glitter? Yes please.

Thumbs up an ignoramus' review

Well, I haven't anything to compare them to but they seem to be acceptable, at least to this noob and her instructor. Yes I am taking lessons at a rink. Summer was tragic and I never made it to outside but it might be for the best. As far as I can tell there's reasonable grip on the terrazzo - they feel 'sticky,' and this may be unrelated but I tried to brake for the first time today and went splat.

When I searched, I only found the Riedell Sonar Patriot. Is that the one?

Love the MAGA looks of the Sonar, but once you go Aussie, there's no turning back mate.

I wouldn't know from MAGA, friend, I'm from Canada, which is where I sourced the wheels. Like so:

AP is a brand, those other lot were a Style. EDIT: <------ WRONG

AP is a style itself. the wheels are Dominion brand. I'm sorry I lied to you.
