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 Resin plate technology

Are the plastic plates getting any stiffer? Anything new that is very stiff compared to what had been the norm? Kicken Edge had CF but I could not get length I wanted.

The box beam style plates using 30% density fiberglass filled nylon is your best bet. The SG Nova plates, though not new, have this design, and I know there is at least one other similar design out there.

However if you are using an inline boot, the areas of contact between the inline boot's "sole" and the deck of a Nova plate would not be so good I expect, especially if ventilation holes cut into "sole "of an inline boot.

If in addition to the mount screws, you add an aggressive adhesive like Shoe Goo between the boot and the Nova plate, the end result will be more than adequately stiff for most (even heavier) skaters.

Doc Sez... C'mon Richard, you know better. However, since this is a reasonable answer, I'll let it slide. Please look before you type...
