does anybody know if these are any good?

Apr 30, 2006 AnthoFlex

I cant tell where the concave is....my guess...i dun think they are too good....maybe i'm wrong

Apr 30, 2006 Surfaced

The blue is the concavity. There are sides that allow tweakage, too.

theas plats are not that good

May 18, 2006 Surfaced

An excellent beginners plate I must say. It performed for me, and it got me a good start.

May 18, 2006 chip

are u able to take theas plats off

May 18, 2006 Curtinator

MAYBE!

May 19, 2006 AnthoFlex

no.......

I've got a couple of pairs of shoes with these plates and I've only just started using them. Not much lockon at all to start off with, but once some groove are worn in then they'll be all good

Not entirely sure why Wesker thinks these are incredibly slow; I've found that my Royales are faster on these than on Slo Bros

I never owned a pair of Soap's with these plates. I tried them out pretty much brand new from a friend of mine at the time and they were just too slow for my tastes.

Then again at the time I was using my Scortchers all the time, so maybe the huge difference in the speed spectrum made me think otherwise.

I would like to describe these grindplates for all of you, as the picture may be decieving. Or maybe my protos are.

The Impact plate is a large grindplate, with a small arch (that can be worn in over time), but from the start it is better than the Slipknot. Also, it is similar to the slipknot in the way that the edges are angled a lot for tweaked grinds like royales to be pulled easily. The picture shows that there are two colors on this grindplate, and this is true, infact they are different materials. The outer part is a rough plastic that feels like soft clay, except it isn't brown and it is plastic. The inner section feels like rubber except it is solid, glossy, and slicker. I haven't tested the plate yet, but from feel I would guess it is slow unless you use wax.

A few notes here,

The production version of the Impact has a wider inner section, and the opposite section probably does not feel anything like clay.

Jul 15, 2006 Mart

Not really sure what you mean by 'rubber' and 'clay', I've got both prototype and production run Impacts and the plates are identical. The rubbery/glossy thing I can understand a bit since new plates always feel funny, once you've worn them down a bit they should be fine

I, for one, can't stand the way the plate sticks out on the outside edge. It kills me on royales, and it'd be fine for farfs and torqueslides if only there was some decent lock-in :\

Jul 15, 2006 Mart

The plates in this picture look like the prototype ones on my Maroon Prabas. All the other shoes I have with Impacts have a much thicker frontside part of the plate (the blue bit in this pic) and there's a small notch on the outside edge of it, presumably for lock-in but it's not really big enough

Jul 15, 2006 Surfaced

Hmm...

I was describing the plate with my Maroon Prabas also, and both of ours came from the same guy. Well at least on my pair the outer section feels rough and has a texture to match that feel.

Jul 16, 2006 Mart

Yeah man, I know it feels rough but I wouldn't say it feels like clay

Aug 3, 2006 Kile

I have a pair of Prabas, they are excellent even though you can't take off the grind-plate. The plate was designed to be concaved so you could have better balance on rails. Yeh it might kill you on royales, but excellent for anything else.

Aug 3, 2006 AnthoFlex

But arent the sides shaped for tweaked grinds?

Sep 24, 2006 Krammit

The praba soaps use these? Are they really any good, despite they cant be removed.
Was told the plate is plastic, I can't imagine it being too durable if its plastic.

Sep 24, 2006 SonicSoaper

All the plates are plastic. They're quite good but certain plates have major diadvantages to them.

Jan 23, 2007 AnthoFlex

WTF? Kyle, u have Prabas? Since when?

Feb 13, 2007 ordnanceflint91

these are good for tweaking tricks but no lock on for frontside/backside....mine are the prototypes so they may be different than the released version i dunno...i love them for royales tho, great tweaking abilities with these plates

Apr 30, 2007 RamenRadio

Is it bad at all for frontsides or backsides?

Apr 30, 2007 Surfaced

No they're fine once used for a while.

Jun 29, 2007 AnthoFlex

There are two kinds of impact plates.

I have given them the names:

Impact Dual and Impact 2

Jun 29, 2007 Megashadow77

What's the difference, do you have pics of each?

Jun 29, 2007 AnthoFlex

Yes....yes i do

Jun 29, 2007 Megashadow77

......can I see pweez?

Jun 29, 2007 AnthoFlex

Ighht, letme put a pic together of both

Jun 29, 2007 AnthoFlex

By the way, the one shown is the one i call Impact Dual.

Now i know what most experienced Soapers are thinking: "Antho, the dual and the SINGLE are the same plate, its just the dual has two dsnsities and more colors than the Single

My response: True, i should just call it the single, BUT, the two plates are a completely different shape, even the grooves and the oval in the middle dont match up.

Jun 29, 2007 AnthoFlex

*thus making them two totally different plates

Jun 29, 2007 Megashadow77

.....Whoa.

Jun 29, 2007 AnthoFlex



Just to let you guys know, both those plates are both from the right shoe. The Duals came from my Maroon Prabas, and the Singles cam from my black Dash.

The obvious differences:

The Dual has bigger tweak edges
The Dual is two colors (for two densities)

The NOT so obvious differences:

-The two are a completely different shape.

-The Dual's hole is near the inside edge of the shoe.

-The Single's hole is in the dead center of the plate

- The single's have very small Tweak edges

- The Dual's have a LOT more concave (round) than the singles.

- The singles are completely FLAT, like the Slipknot's laterals.

-When i think of more, i'll post them


Damn, im good

Jun 29, 2007 Megashadow77

Whoa, that is a big difference....

overall, I'd want the dual. it looks better, and seems like it would preform better.

Jul 24, 2009 failmaster

I'm going 2 sell a pair of white express size 4 shes on ebay

Jul 27, 2009 failmaster

r these good 4 royals?

Dec 25, 2014 Waffle

Are these good? Are the Prabas comfy?

Dec 26, 2014 mcgrinder2011

I've never used the Impact but judging from the opinions, I'd say they're pretty average.

As for the Prabas, you can check the shoe's entry and search the comments for any opinions on comfort.

May 18, 2015 aname

These are probably my favorite plates at the moment. They're a lot faster than the bbks/express and pretty good for royales and other tweaked tricks. Shame the shoes they're featured on are pretty hard to find.

Oct 15, 2015 Brogod12

Tell me about it.

Oct 15, 2015 Waffle

They are cool but rare..
