Cool And right after that, the UPS man came...



I had just pulled Frank off the Bonts so as soon as I got the Nike shoes mounted I put these plates on the lonesome Bonts.



My initial impression of the build quality is 5 stars... as in 5 out of 5.. After I sk8 'em a while I'll pull 'em down and show everyone the pieces like I did on the Crazy Venus, and give ya my 2 cents worth..

Oh, the sk8 is a shade over 1600 gms..

Looking good.
I'll be interested to hear how they compare to Roll Lines, and Crazy's Venus plates.

The ankle cuff on the Bonts look really high. Higher than usual, or is that an optical illusion?

Default a question

is there a reason why you don't use the front mounting holes?

Apart from that they match very nicely to the Bonts.

My guess.....skate them first and adjust fore and aft to get the placement right. Then lock them down with the front screws. At least that's what I'd do.

Default Very Pretty!

They do look "Tuff" in all black... Now, AC/DC will be playing in my head all day...

I, too, am curious to know how they sk8.

Exactly.. If you have slots, you can move the plates. That is why Frank has 6, just like the Power Trac.

This is set up like a Pro Line. 4 slots, 2 holes. I may chuck them up in the the mill and slot the last 2 holes.. Or not...... Depends on how they sk8 once I'm done playing..

That is a all business setup, but I am a bit surprised at weight with that bont boot and rbt's, my skates are in the 1600 gram range, all be it closer to 1650, and that is with not so light 911's in size 11

Intrested to here your impressions after rolling them, by the looks of the geometry, seems like they should be pretty smooth in their handling.

I was surprised as well... when I get done playing I will break these down and see who contributed what...

Hopefully, I will have more to report after Wednesday session.. I have a right decent mental picture of what they should do, so I'm very interested to see If I'm right..

Digging that look!! Gotta feeling thats as far forward as the Bonts are gonna go. Any further and the stop will be past the end of the boot and somehow I don`t think Doc is gonna play like that ... could be wrong but ...

Was thinking the same thing. Doc likes his mounts to look classy as well as functional.

Default Well now..

They are as far back as the current mount will allow... They can only go forward.. We will see where they wind up..
