Roller Hockey Questions

Okay... I've been playing roller hockey for almost 3 months now. I was playing on outdoor asphalt (parking lots). I purchased these wheels . They are very hard 83a.

Now I'm playing on a smooter concrete but I don't have very good traction. I can't really change direction like some of the other players even though I know I can skate better. What can I do? Is the only solution buying softer wheels?

Also, can someone recommend a good stick that wont wear down?

I think the only way to improve traction is to get softer wheels.

As for a stick that doesn't wear down much, try looking for sticks that are composed of ABS like this

i havent played roller hockey in like 3-4 years but i played it for about 10-11 years and you just need softer wheels, try and go into the low 70's.

Are you playing on the smooth concrete that's indoors? If so, do look into wheels in the low 70A's. If it's the kind of smooth concrete that's outdoors, something more gradual in the mid-high 70A's will do.

And as previously mentioned, any stick blade with ABS will do MUCH better than a wood or composite blade.
