To some extent, however as one of the US Olympic speed skaters said, you can be the best skater in the world but if your gear isn't completely in tune with what you need, you'll never perform to your full potential.

Yeah, though I notice the lack of a toe-flick on skinnies which hurts my speed ... and you can have too much of a good thing - Roll Lines don't work for me 'cause they're just too damn skinny!
I havnt tried the roll line slims yet....I kinda stick to to 36-38 mm slims if I go skinnies. I guess not that much different to wides and not sure I would want to go as slim as the roll lines if it will hurt my speed. Thanks for answering a question I had about the roll line slims

Yeah, I can rock my ~86a Diamonds on the derby track no problem (or any variety of ~40mm wheels, loving my 3rd hand Mojos right now) but I just can't get Roll Lines to do what I want
