UHF plates?
May 11, 2008 by RyanSoap

I just ordered some black cleans with uhf's (of course) and I would like to know how the plates and shoes hold up and how long they last for.

They last very long, but if you want to do handrails you want to try and wear them down as much as possible.

Make sure to do tweaked tricks on ledges and curbs (mostly ledges) as much as possible to get nice grooves almost going into the rubber of the shoe.

It's practically like the speedster plate with grooves on the side, only you don't have huge break bars on the side like on the scorchers.

Just make sure to wear them down before grinding on handrails. If you don't have a lot of rails, try not to wear them down so much.

where'd you get black cleans from anyway? you live in the uk?

May 11, 2008RyanSoap

Nah. I live in the U.S.. I am getting them from Rawk.com.

Oh, i personally think UHF's suck big time. But their first gen so what can you expect? Also, you wont be able to get them off of rawk.

so how are the plates on rails?

From my own experience they're really slow on rails. I never even found them to be great ledge plates, but i really wouldn't use them on un-waxed rails unless you wanna go really slow, or not at all
