FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

There are other wheels that gain grip when the grooves go but the only others I can think of off the top of my head are Belair Hockeys...
The floor I skate on generally has great grip. And I'm hard on wheels. So they tend to loose there grooves pretty quick. In a week or 2 time at least one wheel is normally bald. But they still grip so I really don't care. I do think scott will get my money though. There is a lot of good feedback about his wheels. And anyone who has paid that kind of money for wheels has probably used a lot of other expensive wheels to compare them too.

You`ll be hard pressed to find another wheel to match the roll, grip and speed that the Scotts will give you. I`ve skated ALOT, not all but alot, of different wheels over the last 100 years lol, okay 30 years lol and I don`t want to skate any other wheel now. I have Ultimate Weapons which is awesomely fast but the grip can be questionable. I have Anabolix "The Tire" which grips great even with worn grooves and fair amount of roll but they wear quick. I have Anabolix Atomic Reigns which is the closest I have to the Scotts, right now. We`ll see how they hold up after a year of skating. I`ve had my Scotts a year now and still have the grooves. I don`t abuse the wheels but I don`t baby them either.
