Back in the late '80s-early '90s when I was speedskating competitively, I used what is now known as the Sure Grip Gripper toe stops (my rink sold them as "speed skate stops"; I have no idea who the mfr. was back then). I ran the trucks on my Prolines fairly loose, so I had to take my Dremel tool to each new pair of stops and relief-cut them in the rear corners, so I didn't get wheel bite while cross-stepping in the turns.

SG also has a Mini Gripper stop, which are probably a bit lighter than the regular Grippers since they're smaller. I used a set of them when I built my wife's quads last year.
Currently rolling: OG Riedell 395 Redline, Boen Speed 6, Wicked Scotts, Bones Swiss
Coming soon: NTS Royal, Oberhamer 351
