3. I bake my own skates and did my inlines and it was worth the price and it actually was effective
4. if you notice any difference it'll be slight, but new 9's will spin much better than dirty 3's
in regards to number 3.
from what i understand you are making the skate mold to your footshape more? is this practice best used when the skate is a little too big or a little too small?
for number 4. right now i have to put a lot into my strides to maintain decent speed, im guessing the 9s wont take as much work?
