    Curious what kind of wheel configurations you guys run. Might consider including wheel diameter, compound, and the surface you play on.

    Thanks

    72mm front
    80mm rear

    72A

    play on every surface.

    lots of grip on asphalt, decent on rink surfaces.

    I guess it would be nice if I shared what I run as well.

    I play on sport court, and I run a three wheel setup with 76's in the fronts, 78's in the middle and an 80 in the rear.

    I do this because the soft fronts give me exceptional acceleration, the 78 centers don't slow me down and also help my turning, and the 80 rear helps my stopping.

    i use 72, 74, 78, 80 front to back...i just got new skates and they came set up 74, 72, 80, 78 which made it feel like i just started skating, they quickly got changed to my regular setup

    i also use z-rated wheels on sport court, and they have the best grip of any wheels ive used on that surface but it sacrifices speed
