How do the Factory Z-rated wheels stack up against the hornets? Anyone have any input for me?

Yea I have them and I had hornets once. Factory blows them away. They are mad light and dont wear.
There are some different points of view from other sites....but I will reserve judgement because we have not had the chance to try them...I find it pretty hard to believe that the Z- rated wheels "blow them away" referring to the Hornets, as they are a "pretty good wheel"...How long have you used them?, how many times a week? On what surface? what hardness? what's your weight? level of play?....Give us details. How long did your Hornet's last?

Ok. I don't know hardness, but I know I played on all surfaces with my hornets, and they lasted dos months. As for the "They blow hornets away" quote, I was referring to the weight. Peace
That's why I asked....they (Hornets) are intended for Sport floors only, not asphalt, wood, concrete etc. Many see at least 4 months on sport court.
And the Z-rated? How long, and at what level? rec., competitive, elite? Only because it makes a difference in how hard you are on the wheels.
Not really trying to bust you here...it's just that there are a lot of pretty knowledgable and elite inline players who post on here, and who pay attention to new products, but they like specifics, not just "well they're great".

Z-Rated-2 months long, but aren't showing as much wear as the hornets did after they flamed out after two months. Honestly, I think I bought a flawed set, because my friend's hornets lasted a lot longer. I'll probably give them another shot. Then I'll give you the details.

I was unimpressed with the wheels that came with my new Missions. I played in them 2 games before I switched them back out for my hornets. They felt a lot less grippy than the hornets.
