    Don't be afraid of Marathons. I think it may have been a fluke or an issue with early production runs. I'm putting mine back on soon and others have reported recent successes with them.

    Marathons are heavier because they have flat protection built in and even roll when down on pressure. I'd stay with them.
    My other comment is that you list "Surge" handrims. I want to warn you that they come in two sizes, 1 1/2" and 1 1/8". The smaller 1 1/8" is called Surge LT. These handrims are the same as the "Natural Fits" but have the added rubber thing. I have both sizes and prefer the smaller size. In fact the larger size is often offered up in the used market, but I do not recall the LT ever being resold. At any rate, if you can you should try the LT size before finalizing your order.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    Thank you for your feedback everyone! I can't believe I pulled the trigger on this! I asked about LT's Nonoise, I tried them both and originally asked for flexrims, I think my DME just choose the least expensive option.

    I think you have good reasons for ordering this kind of footplate.
    But I was looking at your 4" casters, and also reading you were living in the desert with rough terrain.
    With this footplate you'll never be able to use a FreeWheel if you want to go offroad a little bit, and these small casters will not help.
    Maybe it is something you may consider. I have a angle-adjustable footplate on my 8 years old ZRA, and it doesn't fit with the FreeWheel too… And I'm looking for a welded footplate to buy. If someone has a used one to sell…

    That's a great point. I couldn't do without a Freewheel.
