Even though I've been skating for a half decade I feel like a total newbie when it comes to talking about plates. So here is a laywoman review of my Venus plates. I bought them when I purchased a pair of Crazy Skate DNAs in 2014. I've put a lot of hours on them since then and while I love my new skates as a whole, these plates are pretty amazing. The first practice I had with them I experienced a few minutes of what can't be described as anything other than panic that I was completely out of control, it was like I has wild stallions under my feet. After a few laps I got the hang of it and I couldn't imagine it any different now. These plates are incredibly responsive, lightweight (compared to what I've used previously) and divine to skate with.

I am a relatively new skater and these are the first plates I have purchased other than the plastic ones that came with my first skates. They are responsive and took a little getting used to but I love them. The really great part however is the customer service. I called the store and asked a bunch of dumb questions and still came out with the right selection for my size and skill level. Highly recommend Crazy products and anything Rollergirl recommends.

I'm a bit of a gearhead, and when I started looking into these plates, I had to know more. There are technical descriptions of these plates all over the web, so I won't recap what's already out there. I'm an older guy who's skated on lots of plates over the years: ACS, Sure Grips, and Dominions. Those plates were all 10-15 degree trucks. These 20 degree Venus plates along with the 3 sets of included cushions offer a lot of mobility and tuning. I didn't want to go to a 45 degree plate with the extra truck adjustment nut. For me, simple is good. I like the Delrin truck pivot insert. The CNC machine work is pure art. I got the 252mm plates that offer a 6.38" wheelbase. They are a touch shorter than the 6.5" wheelbase I usually use. Super responsive, stable, and just plain fun. Good value. Check them out if you are in the market for new plates.

I bought these plates as an upgrade to a basic aluminum plate I'd acquired when purchasing a second hand boot. I had completed fresh meat and had been skating with my house team for about five months. I found a difference in my maneuverability and agility immediately and am a huge fan of these plates (significant coming from someone who was skeptical of the ability of gear to improve skating). I am glad a waited to be more confident on my skates before purchasing them. If find that in areas of skating where I still have less confidence (e.g. skating backwards), they can sometimes help my skates to have a mind of their own and not be where I intended them to be. But this is about my need to develop my skills, not a fault of the skates. Love them and have recommended them to others more than once since getting them!
