Wheel Hardness Question

For a lighter guy (145 Lbs), is 76a soft enough for an indoor surface (sport court-ish)? I understand that this is under the category of "indoor wheel" put considering I don't weigh that much, I wondered if it would still be the right wheel durometer.

76a should be fine. Realistically, harder wheels can have their advantages too. Every durometer has its advantages and "the softer the better" isn't necessarily a universal rule.

Im 155 and use 76a and I have no problem getting grip. I'd actually prefer them to be a little less grippy, but I don't want to shell out the $ for a new set of 78s just to gain a little extra slip when I go for stops.
