Hearing all the hype about these wheels I decided to give them a try even before my dynasty's needed replacement. I bought a set of 76MM Hornet soft (I would have gotten xxsoft but they were not available at Johnny Macs) for my rocker chasis skates. I skate both roller and ice and from what I read these seemed like the better choice over thte Hot Shots.These were replacing the extra xxsoft red dynastys. The experience was disappointing and part may be due to going with a wheel that was less sticky then what I was using. The first problem was that the wheel in the second position from the toe did not fit properly i.e. it rubbed. So, I put a dynasty in that position. The feel was much less grippy and didn't like it. I then put two dynasty in the first two positions with the RRW in the back. This set up is not as good as my previous all dynasty set up but I will go with it until I wear out the RR wheels. As I said maybe if I was able to purchase the xxsoft it would have been a better experience but I would still have the fit problem. These just don't work for me or on the rocker chasis.
