Re: Knee pads

I have just ordered some of the 187 pro derby after using scabs since fresh meat (pads are very boring and I don't like spending money on them). I can let you know how they compare.

Re: Tell me about your plates?

This totally sums up my plate dilemma. I love the lateral movement of my avenger plates, I can change direction really easily and do really sharp lateral cuts. Manoeuvrability is a really important part of my game, and I have this in bucket loads! However, they are really difficult to generate any k...

toe stops

Talk to me about toe stops! I have only ever had gumballs and my current set are down to the metal. There seems to be a trend towards (what look to be) giant toestops, and a lot of people have the crazy bounce ones. What toe stops do you have, and would you recommend them?

Re: Why don't my wheels screech?

The thing about the pressure on the floor is interesting, as I am pretty sure lack of pressure is why I struggle with left sided hockey stops. I have to really fight to keep my foot on the floor as my brain is screaming for me to lift it. I wonder if your set up is effecting the pressure you can exe...

Re: Wheel change - testing required!

Yay for turbos! I carry my 88's and 92's with me in my kit bag so you're welcome to try them. I think they're bringing out some 94 or 95's soon too if like me you find the 97's a bit too hard.

Re: Skates Wanted

You can have my size 6 riedell wickeds which I don't think I will ever get round to selling. Who shall I give them too? They have no wheels by the way.

juke alloy wheels for sale

Does anybody want to buy my juke alloys? I have a full set of 88’s and 4 93’s. They are in very good condition and great wheels that a lot of the league use. They are 38mm x 59mm so narrow and short, great for agility and acceleration. They retail at about £55 for a set of 4 new – I am hoping to sel...

Re: Looking for a new mouthguard - Protech

Yes!! I turned my white mouthguard pink by putting it in with a pink denture tablet. It was quite a nice shade of pink though :D

Re: What player numbers are taken/available?

It's the name of a roller derby league though!! http://thedireskates.com/

Luckily they're a women's team in Indiana, so you are unlikely to play against them..

Re: HELP ME

You can get Riedells in different widths - my 495's are B/AA which are super narrow. You can get them in all sorts of colours too but this will probably mean they take as long as the bonts/antiks. Delta skates on an avenger plate now, but she did have roll lines so will be able to tell you about the...

Re: Spacers and Speedrings

Just bog standard axle nuts - my wheel came off the first session I wore the wheels with spacers, since I have taken them out (4 or 5 months ago?) I haven't even had to adjust the nuts. I always used to use washers, I just always lose them so decided not to use them at all rather than on half my whe...
