Default Unorthodox Setup Advice

I've been drilling on Rollerblade Twisters with Seba prerockered frames for a couple months and I'm looking to invest in the FR1.

Since I already have the flat 243mm stock frames from my Twisters, and the Seba 243 rockered, I was thinking of getting the 84mm or 90mm frame option with my FR1s (when I get around to ordering them).

Either way, I'm sold, but the question I have is: Is it worth experimenting with full rocker over 80mm middle wheel size? I've fallen in love with the control and freedom I have on full rockers and don't significantly enjoy front rocker setups. I plan to use the Twisters for my urban commutes and the FR for dedicated Slalom, but I'd like the option to play around even when I don't have my slalom skates with me.

Personally, I don't like bigger than 80mm wheels on my "fun" skates.

However, I do think Canadian aggro/freestyle/mushroom blader Leon Basin sometimes rides a 90mm rocker (on ramps no less) with success.

Not sure if Seba carries a 273mm pre-rockered frame though, so you might have to work out some odd 90mm/84mm combo.

That sounds like it could be fun and worth trying. I do see that zerodrag currently offers 82mm wheels, though, but I'm not sure how I feel about a 4mm difference from one frame to the other, now that I think about it.

If nothing else, I can just go front rocker 90mm frames with the odd 84mm wheel if I don't like full 6mm rockers.

Although if anyone knows where I can find 86-88mm wheel sizes with 85a+ hardness I'd be ecstatic. I'll be keeping my eye out for em and will follow up if I find anything good.

Don't know if these rollerblade wheels are any good, but shop-task has them in 84mm it appears.
