Testing and trying out different setups "tunes" your preference. Don't follow the cow path.
So true! I have really "nice" skates and the difference in performance from a plain decent skate is tiny in my opinion, mostly weight. Yes, they are stronger, but I'm not doing any serious jumps, so it's wasted on me. I have noticed over the years some (almost all) of the best skaters have old ugly beat up skates!
