Default Whats the difference ...

... between a green Vanguard Jumbo Jet and a green Vanguard Graphic Speed? Are these 2 wheels virtually the same wheel and changed their name to protect the innocent (lol)? Or differing duros and urethanes?

Early or late Jumbo Jet? I have never seen a green one.. Only black and orange... Green Graphic Speed, I have never sk8ed a set..

Now, I have a question.. Does it really matter?? It's not like you are standing at the counter with the option to buy either set of wheels new in the wrap.... and can only afford one.... If you actually have an opportunity to choose, and both are in good shape, buy 'em both and then you can tell us.

In a way, yes it does. If they`re close to the same in every way, function and form I can use the Graphic Speeds as a replacement wheel, 1 by 1, for the JJ`s

So true, I am not at the counter BUT, I do have both.

My GS`s are in need of regrooving as is the JJ`s but only 6 of the GS`s are worth fooling with. Reason for me asking was, as I already stated, was for replacements only. Should I ever wear out a Jumbo Jet I could then pop on a Graphic Speed and be done with. I`m not one to ride 2 different wheels if I can help it. Call it what ya want but thats how I am. Thanks for your help

Well, they look different.. Put 4 Graphics on one sk8 and 4 Jumbos on the other.. That should give a much clearer picture..

Default Green jumbo jets

Skated them today and they performed very well think I like them couple more sessions and I will know if they will replace my Hyper Canibals or not if they was red or orange I would say yes already lol it's the green thing I guess but honestly I have no complaints on the JJ's other than the color (Green)

My Green Graphic Speeds are around 98A..... All of the Jumbo Jets that I have owned which were Black, Yellow and Orange were around 95A to 96A. Never had a set of Green ones.
