If you use low end wheels, you are missing out on a lot of speed, accelleration, and grip. Try some high end wheels out. You won't believe you're the same player out there.
+1...when I got my Mission Lieutenants they came with Hornets...I used to use cheap Mission wheels ($3 per, I believe) and I'd rotate them every 5 games or so and they'd wear out after around 20-25 games. I rotated my Hornets for the first time and it's been 20 games or so, and they were barely showing any wear.
I feel faster and more confident with my hard turns and stops, though the new skates may have factored into that as well...
