If you want traction use multiple platforms natively.

Facebook is the AOL of the early 21st century, only not as cute.

Putting a FB link here assures that I won't see it or care about it. As a matter of fact I already have a negative opinion...

Roller bones lost me when they decided to forget about wide speed wheels and only produce "derby" wheels several years ago.

you can rotate right to left. It's purely aesthetic, even if you derogate the fins will all match spinning the same way.

FYI:

AS a long lasting wheel, the White Shamans have served me very well. I can get a year of skating out of the tread from them. Anabolix the tire, I could only get about 6 to 8 weeks of tread life from them. Quite a difference. I just can't see spending $400 dollars on a set designer wheels when Shamans last so long.

Because of the designer wheels I expect some formulas to change for longer wear soon. The production companies are beginning to lose customers over this but there is still stock to be had for now. Also the production companies are capable of producing wheels along the same lines of designer wheels characteristics. I like a zero pigment wheel but it costs me more to get that unless I buy Shamans.

Just buy scotties.
Its not logical to keep buying wheels that wear that fast.
The old shaman formula was ok.But this new one just doesnt last.

Ordering Scotts my way is not feasible. Way too many projects eating right now. The tread would have to last at least 4 to 5 years for me to recover the costs. I like them, just cannot go that route.
