Not scary at all. Well except for thinking I was going to break them getting that locknut undone.

Better rebound? I'm 74kg, so about 163 pounds, so I'm thinking the greys. Most of the competitors at our rink are on these plates and boots, so I am going to pick some brains this weekend on who is on what, we have some other 6ft blokes on them.

They were the Crazy Arts, 2015. They were on an Apollo plate. It was the boot that failed, completely parted company with the plate. Returned for 100% refund, and then some serious exploration happened for something at a considerably higher price point, but something that I would be far more comfortable in, and would last me a lot longer. Definitely an example of you get what you pay for.
