    alum 1.5 soft rolls v comp soft rolls- huge difference

    ok so my comp 4x1.5 softrolls cracked so i replaced w/ alum version[newest ver] from froglegs direct.......wow, like night and day. i never really like the comp ver because they felt slow and spongey and didnt turn well. the alum version are great, all those dislikes are solved w/ these.
    seems like theres more rim and less rubber on the alum. anyway, fyi-spend the xtra couple bucks

    No. At present TiLite uses their own, pricier, 1" wide two-piece aluminum hub soft rolls. They only sell the 1.5"W composite version as their "poly" caster.
