That blue is awesome! My blue 195s are way drab in comparison ... more school-uniform blue than 'royal' blue like yours look. Sweet skates

very nice skates and if used for derby and no toe guards, they will be scuffed with character in no time. At least the plate is so far forward it should help with the toe dragging the ground when doing slides.

Exclamation THERE JUST LOVELY!!! But hoping your 225lbs++++++

If you are a lite weight person and skate on ANY floor that is not grippy.

You are going to be slipp-in and slide-in!!!!!!!

This is SPEED ONLY or fast sessions Wheel for a "BIG HEAVY" person. You must squash them into the floor to make them grip in the turns.

They are FAST,just behind the Bravo Orange Cannibals,and grip less than those. I love them,on my 3rd set. They only last 6 months,after that they have lost a lot of there orginal performance.

I do not want to rain on your parade! Please. I just want to make sure you are aware that it is not a bad wheel! But it will seem like one if it is used for the WRONG venue,application.

BEST ALL AROUND "ATOM" WHEEL FOR DERBY is the "Low boy"! Slim if your a blocker,wide if your a Jammer.. They work just about everwhere.

Okie - Don't worry about raining on my parade - I'm still learning so I'll always listen to advice. I took the dubz out for a spin one session on my old skates and they seemed ok but I didn't go as crazy as I would playing. I'm small, about 120lbs, so maybe these won't work? At 93A I thought they would be similar to my g-rods and thought I could try the lowboys (a fellow teammate has them) if these were too grippy. Is the urethane on the dubz that different? Thanks in advance for the help!

I've skated on loads of G-rods and a set of all the dubz flavors (100a wide, 100a narrow, 93a narrow). I loved my G-Rods and fell even deeper in love with the 93a narrow Dubz. I believe the only difference in the urethane is the dye. I believe you will be fine.

I respectfully submit that perhaps Okie is thinking of the 100a Dubz.

Those are freaking sweet skates, too.

Thumbs up Your right kataya! 93A Should be just right! @ 120lbs

I only use the 100A's so I never even considered she had purchased the softer ones. Where I skate all the locals weigh 150+ we always go for the biggest A number. And all the floors here are real grippy.

All the info for weight and floor type vs wheels and A numbers are in the Atom catalog.

Sorry for the shock inducement. I was Blonde at one time. And skinny to.
