if they are the same as octagon's were then i don't recommend them. those wheels became their namesake after about 3 skates.

I normally skate Spitfire, but i skated some Blueprints, they felt pretty plasticie, really fucking hard, flatspotted and i wasn't really into them, but i might have had a bad set, shit loads of my mates swear by them.

Basically it's personal choice, i prefer wheel company wheels not some bone shakers, but they are cheap so maybe check some out

what spitfires you've had? cause they've got a pretty wide range of different durometer wheels..

Normally i skate the classics in a 54mm think they're 101A, i've been skating the "hardline" lately, which i think have a softer inner core, don't really notice any difference to be honest, i've got some classic aircores or some shit to skate next, i had pair before, they feel a bit lighter when you're holding them in your hand but bar that couldnt' tell any difference.

Dunno, just found Spitfires good, i don't really like Blueprint or Cliches wheels, they're to plastically and have some wierd hard thing going on, perfer actually urethane to them
