*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. 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.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

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 Changes in manufacturing quality?

I'm looking to purchase some Royals for a much needed upgrade to my skates, but after reading through several forum posts about how the Royal came to be in the first place (like Eve from the Imperial's rib, now with curves!) I started to wonder:

Since the production of the Royal changed to allow more plates to be made faster, has the production quality dipped? And for that matter, since all these plates came out in the 70s, has the drop forging process or the aluminum quality changed?

Basically, can I expect to order a plate made this year and get the same quality and durability that earned the imperial a good reputation in the 70s?
