Roll-line is 18-21 degrees, and there are lot's of roll-line knock off's, roll-line plates like roll-line wheels, and roll-line makes great outdoor and indoor wheels, and....the wheels fit on and make less of a footprint, exactly what spins require.
The Snyder Advantage plate is a Roll-Line Killer, it's less expensive and made in the USA according to the Boss.(Bruce)
Full Disclosure, I only skate outdoors, I'm on Magnesium D/A45's with Roll-Line Helium wheels.
My boots are low cut though I do tie them securely. I haven't felt a need for more ankle stability for spins since I rely on balance more than strength for spins. I like having ankle room for moves like the coffin and just general comfort. Might have to get a tall boot when I start jumping.

I wasn't aware that roll line made outdoor wheels but since trying my Rollerbones I've gotten attached to the feel of the thin wheel and have only been able to find that on indoor wheels. Do they have a compromise between the 15 and the 45? Like a 30?
