Well i know for a fact labeda does not have over stock in plates. I talked with tony at the plant in china where the proline and reactor are being machined right now.

here is my proof..asked tony to send pic of new labedas

I can tell you TWO without a doubt in my mind, 1)those plates are made in California AND 2) your 'buddy' is full of sh!t. Just got off the phone with Curt LABEDA, as I talk to him almost daily. Prolines are made at a local (to him) machine shop, the same place that, for now, makes the hubs for his EVOLUTION inline wheels.

Most of the shops in China DO NOT make 1/2 the stuff they say they make, they just want your business. Case in point: I got an email from a shop staying they made skate frames.....and sent me a pic of MY OWN FRIGGIN' FRAMES!!!!! I also have gotten pics of Simmons boots that shops say they make. Those emails get FWD to Dave and Jennifer....

BTW: the material Labeda is using NOW is from when they made plate in the past....

Default Any Updates?

With all the vendors here, does anyone know when these items will be ready in October for sale, early or late?


Cheers, THOM

Default Pro Lines

The new ones look like the old ones. John Matejec who was showing them @ SeSS indicated they have 7 and 8mm axles available. He also said they will be engraving the Pro Line logo shortly, ditching the sticker.

The Stiletto wheels are on what appear to be Interceptor hubs. See http://www.skatelogforum.com/forums/...ad.php?t=23069

The new wheels and Prolines are available now but stock is VERY limited on wheels and plates are only available in a few sizes.
