I wanted somewhere to record the conversation AJ and Master Blaster had with someone yesterday about wheels (which I eavesdropped on like a creepy stalker).

Basically AJ said she always skates on all 4 wheels the same because she wants them all to react the same way. Master Blaster has her inside edges the same, outside different (so looking down at her feet, the 4 wheels - 2 on each skate - which are on the inside of her skates are the same).

They agreed that this is important to them for edging and lateral work because if you mix duro on an edge then the wheels grip differently and therefore pull your feet in different directions which means you're not as agile because you have to counteract that.
