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.

Default laser size question

I have a size 12 boot and I am looking at a laser plate that is 7 inches from axle to axle. Would this plate be a little too short or just right? Thanks for your time.

Well.... that depends on you!

I know several people who love a 7" wheelbase and they are on 11.5 so it would not be a stretch to rock one on a 12. I say go for it!
