    Default pool wheels for newbie

    i was wandering would a newbie want a really hard wheel in a spf duro or would a bit more grip from a 98A duro be a better for learning to skate bowls? about to invest in my first pool board:

    8.5" mini logo deck with indy 149 trucks. trying to decide between rainskate yellow jackets single conical (62mm 98A duro) and bones skullz (62mm spf duro).

    thanks in advance for any help

    Personal opinion without much science behind it:

    As long as it's harder than 92a you should be okay...

    SPFs have an amazing amount of grip, at times too much. 98a Rainskates are slick compared to SPFs. I can't find any use for mine. Don't over think it

    SPF's are always a good choice for crete. They can be a bit slick on wood but, that teaches you to use finesse.

    I ride Autobahn Enduros, started off with that same setup. I've only ridden SPF's on crete and they were zippy, but I've heard their grip is pretty meh on wood or masonite. Enduros grip errthang well and are mega comfy, I recommend 'em to start off with. You won't be disappoint

    That setup is money. Learned a lot on it, and it was mega cheap. I still suck dong at anything park, but I have a hell of a lot of fun doing it and I can make my way around the park and not eat **** all the time now.

    ive been skating bowls for about 6 months now. got an 8.5 creature with indy 149s and ride em really loose. i got into skating bowls after surfing for about 10 years and moving to an area i dont get to surf much. anyways, i started riding spitfire classics ( 56.5mm 98a's i think) they wore down pretty fast, ive been skating A LOT too tho. i just got the rainskate rs-57 yellows which are also 98a. compared to the spitfires the have a lot more grip and are a bit wider wheel, but dont feel too soft and are super fast. they dont feel as hard as the spitfires of the same durometer either. i really like the rainskate rs57s so far, skated two bowls with them tonight for a few hours and was getting a lot of speed without having to pump as much as i had to with my worn out spitfires. anyways....im really not sure whether i prefer the spitfires or rainskates yet, but i like em both. basically the spitfires feel harder, slide easier, and have a smaller contact patch than the rainskates.

    Son, whatever drugs you're on, they're not helping... 90a is entirely too soft for even a really rough pool
