I play on polished concrete (arena) and practice on sealed concrete (warehouse). The warehouse venue is slick because it gets really dusty and dirty, otherwise it's ideal. I love it! Some of our girls wear a full set of super-grippy wheels such as Poisons or Sugars. I couldn't do it. LOL
For a slick surface, I generally do a 50/50 split of 2 grippy (think 88 or lower) and 2 92's (or above). Sometimes I'll just throw one grippy wheel on each skate. In our practice space I wear old, bald wheels because it's so gross in there. I will put my baldest wheel on my back right side for hockey stops.
It's just a matter of personal preference. The scale is just a loose guideline. I find that I love hard wheels. I like a bit of slide. I have skated on 97's quite a few times. It depends on the floor.
