*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

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

Default Questions about modifying/customizing twister 80 skates

What's up guys and gals I was just wondering if there is any cost effective way to set up my twisters with an anti rocker set up as well as adding a soul plate to the skates. If it doesn't make sense financially or if anybody has any input on some decent aggressive skates that would be great. I've been skating again for about a month and I have progressed to the point where I'm ready to start at the park. Ramps and jumps are fun but I really want to start grinding. Thanks in advance for any input!

I would call RB on that and see if the soulplates from the Solos will work--I know they will with the fusion boot, but I'm not sure about the twister.

Beyond that... I can't really give you much advice on what to do without a lot more information, for instance... do you like the twisters? What do you like and not like about them? What do you primarily want to grind? Short rails? Concrete ledges? What is your budget for this setup? Would you like to keep the speed and maneuverability of your skates, or do you want something that'll be ideal for grinding, and won't mind going slower & losing maneuverability?

Heck you can get a cheap pair of Razor Gen's for about a 150 bucks if you look for deals at Rollerwarehouse or Inlinewarehouse (dot coms)

On a budget there is the Blade Trade Outpost on Facebook. You can get some cheap used skates on there.

Also, Blade Tech on facebook can help you further. Someone there put UFS souls and frames on a pair of Aeons!

An early-morning skate is a blessing for the whole day.

Sorry for posting to such an old thread but this info might be helpful in the future.

The twister boot has a raised heel, so a standard frame is not compatible (there will be a gap between frame and boot).
