Seems like the group needs more info.

What is your current skill level?
What is your budget?
Are you willing to upgrade in 6 months? 1 year?

I agree you need quality equipment. But you also need to to know the correct boot size, boot shape, wheel hardness, wheel size, turning comfort, cushion setup.
Some of these you can learn from a cheaper or used skate.

That said, I have recommended for starters:
Bont Quadstar
Bont Athena plate setup
Riedell R3 / Sure Grip Rock GT50 (but you must upgrade the cushions.)
Crazy DBX 5

Call Derby Warehouse and talk to them. They are having a sale this month.
