Thinking of picking up some 97a conical fulls for indoor park skating this winter. Are they worth it, how much of a difference do they make?

i wont skate anything but 97a for concrete parks they feel hard like wheel but have a little give for when you hit bumps and dont slow you down. i can slide the spitfire 97a just fine but the oj nomad 95a are little grippier. but for wood i think id go with something harder like the bones spf, i have a set of spf and  they are super hard but i dont have any wood parks or ramps to skate around me.

95 & 97 are the best! It blows my mind there are so few options.

 i know right! i have been on the hunt for all makers of 95a-97a wheels in 52mm-56mm probably have a list of about 10 different wheels but ive been emailing companies and telling them to make them. so far SML and Snot have said they are working on it.

I really wish the 97a classics came in 52. But I donít think that would be a winning proposition for dlx:

Yeah, I smaller softer wheels aren't going to last that long. I can imagine a 52mm/97a classics coning and wearing out pretty quick and not mashing through rough terrain that well. You might just get a sluggish F4... Might be fun in super slippery environments...

My 54s turned into 51.5s faster than any other wheel Iíve skated.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

Ok

Well sheeeeit this is good news for me then.
Iíll just run that early 2000s dill/Ave setup where it looks like they were using 54s with 5.0 loís 😆
