Thinking of the 2nd pair of skates to do more artistic/dance/precision type skating.

Not sure I need a second pair of skates. Don't know whether to improve my skills more before trying something different or if skates with more control and turning ability would improve my skating. Decisions, decisions. Wish I could try a pair before purchasing but have not been able to find a way as don't know anybody with the type of skate package I am considering in my size. Everybody I know plays derby and has speed skates.
Here's an example of skates you can find on ebay. This is a very good deal for someone on a budget.
Riedell 336, Roll-Line Mistral, Roll-Line Panthers. Swiss Labyrinth II .
