Love your words of wisdom Rufus, thanks :-)
Yep I will suck it up and learn how to use these babies then!
I'm ok skating once I get past the first few pushes, the main fear is not having a toe stop. I'm used to a massive hockey one and didn't realize how much I used it until it wasn't there. I keep swapping between the jam plug and a small suregrip one that I cut down a bit so I could have it high (it doesn't do much, it's more of a security blanket) until I get my head around no toe stop.
I do however still use my hockey skates twice a week for, you know, hockey. So I will just have to learn to adjust between the two...
I'm feeling better about persevering with the reactor pro now though and will start practicing those 180's :-)
