Boots.
1) Labeda 37x Taiwan
2) Riedell Kangaroo 3/5/695s
3) Any Prostyle
4) Labeda 37X USA
5) Riedell 911
*) Soft leather 122s
*) Bont QBW
*) Mitre Soccer shoe.... Yeah it's a contender....

Plates.
1) Roll Line..But have to be set up properly.
2) Snyder Imperial action (Lite versions only) NOT for everyone...
3) Boen / Pro Line / Reactor.. (Pretty much the same to me)
4) Ultimate I / II
5) Ultimate III / IV / Dominator
*) Galaxy
*) ATLAS AE2000 (figure plate. sorry if I got the model # wrong...)
*) Paioli Dance

Wheels
1) Crossfires / Glow Sn8ks (Sn8ks have plastic hubs)
2) Velocity / Fusions (Both plastic hubs)
3) Purple Vipers / Orange R-Tecs
4) Ultimate Weapons (as appropriate for floor conditions)
5) Black Vanillas / Grey Sn8ks
*) Natural Rockets

Based on the original premis I am cheating but this is as close as I care to break it down..

Obviously I am not always looking for what a lot of other sk8rs are looking for...

UPDATE 12/28/08 As it stands today...

Boots.
1) Bont Carbon Quad Racer
2) Labeda 37x Taiwan OR 8 Wheels 895
3) Bont QBW
4) Riedell Early 2/3/5/695s
5) Any Prostyle

Plates.
1) Roll Line RING..But have to be set up properly.
2) Snyder Imperial action (Lite versions only) OR Ultimate Imperial.
3) Ultimate Boen (UIII with Boen king pins and action) Lots of machine work required
4) Boen / Pro Line / Reactor.. (Pretty much the same to me)
5) Ultimate I / II

Wheels
1) Crossfires / Glow Sn8ks (Sn8ks have plastic hubs)
2) Velocity / Fusions (Both plastic hubs)
3) Maroon Vipers / Orange R-Tecs / ATOM Fusions NOTE On my home floor the Vipers rule
4) Ultimate Weapons (as appropriate for floor conditions)
5) Black Vanillas / Grey Sn8ks / Natural Rockets
Updates to follow as necessary....
UPDATE 1/12/11... As it stands today...

Boots. (no change here)
1) Bont Carbon Quad Racer
2) Labeda 37x Taiwan OR 8 Wheels 895
3) Bont QBW
4) Riedell Early 2/3/5/695s
5) Any Prostyle

Plates. (Changes Changes... The stiff Bont boot has impacted the plate selection)
1)
Snyder Imperial action (Lite versions only) OR Ultimate Imperial.
2) DA45 Cyclone NTS. I don't use stops and it is the lightest of the bunch..

3) 2 way tie. Ultimate Boen (UIII with Boen king pins and action) P Trac Suspension Lots of machine work require or Super Nova (Nova on a Bont w/ ti king pins P trac suspension
4) Boen / Pro Line / Reactor.. (Pretty much the same to me) I'll take the Boen over the other 2 due to weight.
5)
Roll Line RING..But have to be set up properly.

Wheels


1) 3 way tie. Blue Roos. (Aussie prototypes.. Nothing faster and awesome grip for how hard they are.) Red Vipers are so close it's hard to call.. Purple Vipers... There is just something about these Sims... These 3 wheels are about immune to floor conditions where I sk8..
2)
Maroon Vipers / Ultimate Weapons (as appropriate for floor conditions) 3) Ruby Red Stilettos
4)
Orange R-Tecs / ATOM Strokers, Dubs or Fusions
5) Black Vanillas / Grey Sn8ks / Natural Rockets

Updates to follow as necessary....if i remember or get reminded..
Just thought I'd bump this thread and give you a "reminder." It's been about 2 yrs since your last update. Anything favorites changed?

Everyone else, please post your updates as well... I'm curious to see how all the new gear offerings are holding up against the old favorites.

Default Top Five List-Boots-Plates-Wheels-Bearings

Skate Boots

6. Stomp Factor One (very stiff but fairly comfortable for a cheaper boot)
5. Riedell 595 OS
4. Riedell 395 (A bit to narrow for my foot as all Riedell's have been for me)
3. Riedell 695 OS
2. Oberhamer 351
1. Oberhamer 351

Wheels

5. Sims Red, White, Blue (OS) multipurpose wheel
4. Fan Jet's
3. Labeda Interceptor Turbo's Orange OS
2. Van-Beda's OS
1. Labeda Stilleto Slims

Plates

5. Snyder Advantage (My next purchase, haven't skated on one yet, but if it's anything like the Royal, this will move to #1)
4. Pro Octane 7000 Elite (This plate is unbelievably light and has the action of a Proline)
3. Laser/Nycon (Only reason I rated this #3 is because of the difficulty adjusting the trucks for my skating style)
2. Labeda ProLine
1. Snyder Royal

Bearings

5. Bones Super Red (all purpose bearing)
4. Qube 8's (Fafnir's revised, once you get them broke in man do they roll)

2. Qube Swiss
1. Super Fafnir's (What I would do for a new set of these)
