Hey guys I know you have talked about Rink Rat wheels before but I just want to confirm that they are the BEST wheels ever. I have tried everything from formula g to dynasty and nothing compares to these. The next closest wheel is the millenium gripper orange and still there nowhere near rats. And im not just saying this I have played in the MPRH, Narch Pro, Torhs Pro Series and every other tourny under the sun. They last 3 times longer than any other wheel and the grip and rebound are unbelievable. I live in Detroit and there's a shop here that carrys them called Get Inline heres the #734-480-3230 tell em Bone sent you and he will hook you up. Ohh by the way Mike Hunt the captain of Rink Rat is a great guy and I defitnalley recomend this product to every serious player out there peace c-ya ps check our website periodically we will cary them soon. Or just post there if you have any questions hyperdetroit.cjb.net

Sweet, thanks for the info. Now if I only had the money... lol

and at just 10.95 per wheel, you can save 36 cents over buying dynastys. I hope this will bring more reviews, though I've only heard good things. Good luck to the Rink Rat guys!

"Just 10.95 per wheel."
Does anyone else find that statement remarkable? lol

"statement remarkable" ? yes lol

On the blurb for Dynastys it says "Yes- it is the most expensive wheel in the world" But its only by 4 cents per wheel right? Is 10.95 the same price as the pro shops that are selling them?

If I feel Dynasty's are worth the money that you pay, I am sure the Rink Rats will be worth it more so.

nope.... and apparently, i dont think everyone is too hapy about that...!?!

They are like 96 for a set at a pro shop if I remember correctly, but remember, you don't pay shipping at your pro shop, and there is an intangible benefit of being able to see the wheels before you buy them, so the difference in cost may just be a corrective measure to keep the price equal between online purchases, and buying local.

It must be a sign of the growth of our beloved sport that manufacturers can fetch 11 dollars for a wheel. I can only wonder what the cave man who invented the wheel would say if he saw a roller hockey game featuring Team Rink Rat. say... 10 players on a team, at $96 per skater for wheels... that's almost $1000 in JUST WHEELS. Oh... and say they were playing a team who was wearing Dynsaties... now you're looking at $2000. And to think... the original wheel was probably made of wood, and was in no way even slightly related to roller hockey. Oh how far we have come.
The cave man would probably think Rink Rat's logo looks like a tasty dinner treat.

I see on epuck there are two different types of RR wheel. From the description I think I would prefer the Hornet (alas epuck only has the hot shot). Has anyone used both? feedback, prefrences?
05-09-2003, 04:23 PM
epuck does have the hornet. Its right above the hotshot on the wheels page
05-09-2003, 11:42 PM
thanks, I missed that. still trying to decide which one would be best, thinking the hornet.
Asked the same question at Center Circle last night of their hockey director - which Rink Rat wheels are guys using? Lol told me that it doesn't seem to matter on their surface and most are using two of each. (maybe because of the dust -guys were sliding a lot there on anything and everything lol)
