Iíve skated them a few times already, got the conical 99s 52. They feel fine, slide decent, grip good so far on black top. After I skate a smooth park Iíll come back with more thoughts.

Not even joking, Iíd skate them and get a flatspot, ride them until it fixed itself, and then repeat

I would think they are similar to spitfire classic formula from back in the day

Idk if their formula has changed since this past summer but I just copped a pair of 53mm 99a conicals and they've suited my needs for the tail end of winter here in Boston. No flat spots yet

I had a set of the 55s and they were good to me. I skated them for about 6 months and they wore down normally, no flat spots.

Just started skating some and really like them. Came from formula fours, and before that only prize fighters. I'd say these are directly in between those two so they're perfectttttttttt

Super interested in Dialtone.

I see that some people have flatspotted them. Which isnít a big deal for me, personally. But I see that theyíre like $35 for a set.

Spitfire F4ís are only a couple dollars more and donít flatspot. Why do Dialtones have that price point? What am I missing?

Just threw the conicals I got from their mystery box on a set up and theyíre pretty nice.

Slide is normal, no flatspots yet. I felt like I was getting good slides on shitty ground sooner than I did with my last set of f4ís.

Iíd get another set.

This is the most accurate comment I've read in a long time.

I'm currently riding Easy Streets and I fucking LOVED my Zune.

 Not sure if youíre asking anyone specifically, but they have some cool shapes, and I like the team.

None of the local shops around me carry them, but I would be interested in trying some out. But the price point is whatís throwing me off.

If theyíre the same as Spitfire Classic formula, I donít see the reason in spending the extra $10, when Iím currently pretty loyal to Spitfire.
