Re: Closest inline hockey skates to ice hockey skates...
The Sprungs are head and shoulders above the old Tuuk Rocker chassis. The Rocker chassis was just a middle rocker arm on a pin, so it slammed back and forth freely. The Sprungs have two pairs of rocker arms with each set holding a urethane bushing between them, providing suspension.
I'm primarily an inline guy, so matching an ice blade wasn't key for me, and the Sprungs I got are my second choice of chassis. That being said, they are the closest, Joe Noris (former NHL'er, current Team USA inline coach) was Keith's first big prospect for the Sprungs and has said they are about a 70% match for ice. Not bad considering the alternatives for ya
One of God's own prototypes, a high-powered mutant of some kind, never considered for mass production
