Mixed hardness bushings
: : Yes. I used to have the harder bushings against my base plate and the medium hardness bushings on top. That was when I used to play hockey.
: Did you also use it in the ramps? How did they feel?

I\\\'m sure that I must have used them in the ramps at one point. It was the skating of ramps that caused me to go with harder bushings. I found myself tightening my trucks down too much in order to het more control on ramps. So, I ended up going with harder and harder bushings. In fact, I went skating just last night with my new bushings, and I had to tighten my trucks down even more, as they felt a bit to loose. But, they are not over tightened, like when I had softer bushings on them.
