I'm nuts.....
Claudine, you are addicted! lol You may need an intervention. How many skates do you now have? I have never known much about skate equipment and wonder how much it really matters? I am curious to know from all of you how much a plate really impacts your skating? I do like the flat bottom of those plates, but wonder how much difference it actually makes. I used to have no problem doing plate stahls on my old Chicago plates. I have decided what I like when doing plate stahls is having my the king pin part of the trucks hit the coping so that I can push off. I still don't know what I am going to do about my grind plates. I took them off to see if I could attach them at the bottom of the bushings, but the holes don't match up. I may just get a weak jump bar, which usually bends to the bottom of the plate with in a week.

: I won tracker plates for myself on ebay, OUCH. I just went crazy on the last sec. on the bidding and it went to the full price, wow. But the boots are sold already, along with the plates if they are slightly big to the awesome dude that sold me my first ones. But mine are the same size it seems. OK, I'm really, really broke now. :-( But now I'm set for life in vert plates!! I dont have options to have plates machined and serious doubts I could cut one myself. After getting the trackers I dont want to ride in anything else and never plan on giving this up til my ticket is called. So whats the scoop on copers?
