_Ryan_I have 7.2's and i haven't found problems with them besides bearings, and thats not a big deal. Pretty fun skates, big soul plates, not too heavy.
those USD's are good too
and yeah bearings that roll well make it or break it
In my exp alot of skate bearings dont spin for shit when you crank them down on blades. Fkds suck, bones REALLY SUCK, but flip hkds dont rub and spin for at least 30 seconds when you hand spin test them. I just get flip hkd abec 5s but im sure the 7s work great as well.
Its funny- roller warehouse has an entire page of tgeir catalog dedicated to bones even tho BONES DO NOT WORK ON INLINE SKATES!
Pretty funny what some people will try to get away with these days.
But i agree, your bearings rolling well is of tantamount importance. Nothing is worse than losing speed all over tge park.
Flip fkds are not only the best inline bearings ive ever tried, but they are also ranked above everything else in skateboard forums all over the place
