I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

Arrow Flat and Banana Rocker Set up

I have been using flat set up for my hockey skates for some time I think. I can't tell if the wheels are exactly flat set up because it feels like some of them may have been run down. So, they are sort of like a banana rocker set up now I guess, since my friend and I switched wheels around.

I believe I know most about the flat set up, since it has the best stability among the rest of the wheel set ups but I don't know much about the banana rocker set up. I have been trying to search for pictures of rockered wheels but I haven't been able to find them. Even using Google images, I've found it very difficult to find a single picture of it. I know there are 2 smaller wheels on the outside with 2 larger in the inside, but I can't scale it in my mind because I don't know the sizes.

Basically, I would like to know the pros/cons of flat set up and banana rocker set up from you guys. As in, the best places for them and if they can help or render your abilities.

I do know rocker set up is better for slalom, or at least most recommended. But for Hawaii there are many hills here and there it's safer to go with the flat set up. I can always just buy a separate set of 76mm or 80mm (4) to test both out. But with some background information available, it would be a lot easier not only for me, but for those with the same question. (I think I sound like I'm demanding for answers.. but I am sort of desperate since the resources to this kind of information is limited to only forums that I can understand aka English.).

Thanks

Edit: I've browsed around yesterday and found this article on wheel set up. But sadly, they only have drawings of them it. fml...
