These:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VANGUARD-Boome...item563bbee012 (mine aren't pink, though, and they won't get many votes here, because hardly anyone knows them)
If you don't want to spend too much, these

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/KRYPTONICS-TRU...item33588c6645 are amazing too (you'd need two sets, obviously, if you bought the ones in this link). My boyfriend has them and I tried them out the other day - really comfy on rough ground and easily go over pebbles ... They're a bit wide (40mm), but that didn't bother me.
I was also much faster than with the 62mm Kryptonics Routes I've been using recently.
While 62mm wheels are okay outdoors, I'd recommend larger wheels for comfort and speed.

For longer distances the ABEC11 Flywheels 76mm, 81A. Skateboard wheels, shaped on a lathe by Johannes.



To have fun outdoors: Kryptonics Impulse 58mm, 78A. Very narrow wheels, ideally for dancing and spinning.

I too think the 70mm Twisters (Velocity race) are the best that I have owned or used. I have three sets of the twisters, but I have not used the velocity race although I have heard that they are the same. Have you or anyone else noticed any difference between the Twisters and velocity race? Also how does the boomerangs compare to them?

sorry for the stuopid question, but:
Are those boomerang wheels discontinued? if they are (wich i figured they probably are by the link posted) are they hard to come by? because i have lots of stuff to pay for right now, but i am reading some threads here in the outdoor session and they look like really good wheels from the few that mention them, they seem to love them. so i just wanted to know if i should jump at the opportunity of buying a set as soon as i can find it, or if they arent really rare

They were discontinued in the late 80s. So if you have a good opportunity to buy them for a reasonable price, - and you want them - you should jump at the chance.
