And he has a nice set of bended crazy steel kingpins too.

Well, I never said it was impossible. On the other hand, I have seen more expensive plates break doing Derby.

Now, what contributes to all the bendy breaky crap?? Hard cushions sure do not help. The are happy to transmit lots of force to the plates. It's why I advocate softer cushions... that and I don't much like my sk8s holding me upright, or not steering where I want them to go without spraining an ankle.
