Default How can I tell the size of our Avenger DA 45 Magnesium Plates?

My girlfriend recently bought a pair of Brass Knuckle Vanilla Blackouts and it came with Avenger DA 45 Magnesium plates mounted. She's trying to sell them and has a couple of interested buyers but we don't know how to tell the size since it is not clearly marked on any part of the plate. (unless it is on top of the plate between the boot and plate) She's clocked maybe 5 hrs on them, no bouts, and just doesn't like the feel.

These plates:

Found this:

But not sure how to tell which way it is mounted. I'm new to the gear side of skating so any help is greatly appreciated.

Measure from the center of the front axle to the center of the rear axle, irregardless of the size the company says the plate is the axle measurement is what people want to know.

This chart gives the plate size with it's corresponding wheelbase (distance between axles). Hope that helps.

The combined info posted here should give you what you need.

On the bad feel, are you sure the pivot pins are set correctly? Here is a thread to help you check them.


The Avenger will not feel right unless the pins are set right. This may change the skaters' perception of the plate. Or not. Just something to check.

One annoying feature of the Avenger is that the size is stamped (or stickered?) on the top rather than the bottom. They should have put it in that little compartment or something.

But yeah, measure the axle span (distance between the centers of the axles) and consult the document on the Sure-Grip site.
