Ask DocSk8 (Expert Indoor Skate Building Advice) This forum is different then the other SkateLog forums in that it is not a discussion forum, but rather a place you can ask skate building expert Fred "DocSk8" Benjamin about building and repairing indoor speed, derby, and jamskate quad roller skates. Please start a new thread for each new question.

Default Nylon trucks and axel molded as a unit

I'm not sure molded is correct for nylon, I don't know the process.

But the rink I work was selling new skates like these. Not just the plate but the axel and truck is nylon as well. I don't trust these skates for anything. You could even see fill issues in the nylon. That's got to cause a weak spot even if the flaw is small. They are all for looks and the price is too high for junk.

What's you opinion doc? Is the nylon really that sturdy?

Molded is as good as any other term for the process.

Depends on the plate design, the quality of the material and where / when it was made. What plate specifically??
