I play in a parking lot. What are some blade options? So far the only decent blade I have found is the Easton Z-ABS. What else is out there for playing on street? Thanks.

If you have average Hammer-Time (foot size) you will probably want to be cool like the other kids and check out into Mission. They seem to own the market. www.missionrh.com
Also Bauer, CCM, Tour make quality skates. I've been told to stay away from the fancy (and pricey) carb boots.

Hey, I actually ment stick blades, not roller blades. Hope I can get some suggestions.

Woops! Well, the Yzerman blade seems famous with the slapshot crow. A lot of the Easton blades are popular. You can check the Top 10 list Easton has in their pamphlets or website.

Any of the ABS blades will probably be your best bet. Also, the Mission PRT(Perimeter Reinforcement Technology) blade is good too...its a wooden blade, with with the perimeter re-inforced(duh ;) with ABS plastic. Wooden blades actually hold up very well on smoother concrete and tennis courts, but do NOT, and i repeat do NOT use a Kevlar blade outdoors. Its actually just a styrofoam core surrounded by Kevlar....once you wear down the bottom, it falls apart.

i've found that some of the bauer sticks with plastic blades have worked well like the breakouts and impacts.
