Where to buy cushions/bushings

I made the decision to buy new cushions for my skates and decided that I wanted the orange powerdyne magic cushions. HOWEVER,

my problem was that I couldn't find them for a decent price! I didn't really want to compromise and go with the sure-grip super cushions even though they were a lot cheaper. The only place I could find them was Skate Attack where they were £14.99 + £7.15 (p+p) which seems incredibly excessive for what you're actually getting. I couldn't find any on ebay or any on any other UK derby suppliers. I was trawling the LRG forum, to see if there was any news, anything interesting, or anything good for sale. When someone reccommended this irish site for gear: http://shop.wreckless.ie/index.php

And I was happy to find the powerdyne magic cushions for pretty much the same price (after I'd converted it from euros). BUT the p+p, even though it's technically international shipping, was only €1.50! So the total order came to €19.50 which was just over £16. Excellent! Anyone else who stubbornly doesn't want any sure-grip products to touch their riedells - go there! :mrgreen:

I'm pretty sure the Suregrip ones are identical to the riedell magic cushions, it's just marketing ploy I tell you! I have the suregrip ones, and remember they are just bits of plastic!

Suregrip didn't do the hardness I wanted either :( but ohs well. I'm happy with my purchase! Haha.

Everglides sells em, and free shipping and derby girl discount too, that's where I got my orange magic bushings :)
