Hello and thanks for accepting me to the fourms.
I have recently 2 months ago taken up quad skating. I've taken interest due to the excerise and fun. I'm also recovering from cancer.
I skate every weekend I'm a volunteer at my local indoor rink.
My first skates where Labeda V3.
I quickly upgraded to Zombie Max 88A wheels, and now upgrading boots & plates.

My question is if theses skates and plates will bolt up with no issues, and opions on these two.
Vanilla Brass Knuckles Blackout Derby Boot - Size 10
Sure-Grip Avenger Black Aluminum Plates

I already have great wheels and don't want to buy any other kind. Thanks for any and all help.

Congrats on Skating. Hope if you fall and you fall often, IT the fall, like Cancer will not Stop you from Skating. Skate hard enough you might kill the cancer via the way the body works by accelerating processes.

I am not really a Skate Set up person, like many on the list. I search for what I like and then want it. More into the Music, the atmosphere, and the Skate moves.

Anyway the Avenger sounds OK, since I know many that like it. I myself have junky skates yet am probably going to buy a Roll Line top of the Line plate. The Avenger might be another of my choices.

I can skate on boots with Duct Tape, and make it look like magic.

Many like Vanilla, and they look really good. V gets them from Riedell yet must have some upgrade specifications.

For Wheels you have soft stuff, which is OK if you like to soft dance. Dances like the Electric Slide https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DYDIsZwA54
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97OtsR8L1NY are easier on Softer Wheels. Always had a hard time doing that song with faster wheels.

Yet if you like speed and stuff there are other wheels to use.


Yours in Skating, MA/NY Skating Dave
