Boen has become nothing but a piece of wall art/nostalgia.

Nope, sure isn't. This isn't me speaking of arius plates either. I know several people who will disagree with you sir, and they have skated boens.

Lol.
Your funny.
I bet they are all Americans who skate skateboards and use stoppers.
Proline and Ultimates are all better if you put Boen trucks on them.
Your probably right though Mort.
Only the Italians, koreans and Australians that love Boens.

Not American made. Not Americans who skate on them, save maybe 1? Ask Hebegb. ^.^ its his plates I am speaking of. Everyone that compares them to boens now look at them as near insignificant.

Boen= over rated.

I have skated Hebes skates.
Great for his big wheel.
My opinion of them is they skate like a boen.
Nice. But still not as good.
Only thing wrong with a boen is its ground clearance.
Were Hebes is built for clearance.
I dare say that if anything will take over it will be them or another Aussies plate.

Well they are the only plates that I could never acquire due to what people were asking for them. As much as I skate now outdoors not sure they are worth what you Aussie's are willing to pay.

Price is dictated by demand from the Koreans, Aussies and Europeans. There is plenty of competition in the Toe stop skates but only a few new NTS plates are being made as good as the ones from the past.

For outdoors, long distance skating, e.g. marathons, still the best plates.

Seen NOS Boens in a box sell for 1.5 x $ NTS titanium royals, rarity dictates the price.
