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.

I have run 6" plates similar to a Pro Line on my 9s with no issues.. The only way you will find out is try it..

Front axle at the front of the ball of the foot and centered there across the boot, NOT at the widest part of the boot. Back end of the plate centered on the center of the back of the heel..
