Plates are marketed toward a specific set of discipline, but that is not to say that it can only be used for that discipline.

DA/45 plates like the avenger are marketed for derby, but that doesnt mean that they cant be used for speed or shuffle.

as Ferocious said, its all about how you setup your skates. Granted, you may not be able to get your speed proline plates to turn as tightly as a DA/45, that is due to geometry, but for the average "round and rounder" (frequent session skater) you can get away with pretty much any plate.

What type of skating are you planning on doing, and a budget? lower budget (under $200) the Suregrip Avenger and Avanti plates are very good. Avenger is marketed for derby mostly, and Avanti is more marketed for speed and general session skating.
