:I have to admit, however, that I prefer inlines for hockey use.
I know we're digressing a bit from ramp talk here, but if you wore your roller skates setup like this picture you may prefer them to inlines for hockey. They belong to my friend Dean who plays roller hockey against inline skaters and has no problem skating circles around them. I wear my skates mounted like this now and after a couple sessions getting used to them, you don't ever want to go back to conventional mounting. Your stability, maneuverability and smoothness of ride is dramatically improved, even on rough pavement.
