All of this is up to the skater and their preferances. Being smooth and predictable is what I expect out of a skate.
Myself, I never cared for blues, they change stack height(thickness) under load on a DA45. On other than DA45, they will just be a softer cushion. My preference is just medium duro cushions.
Yeah, no snapback with inlines. On inlines, you, or I guess a skater, can kind of create it with tightening your turn. It's pretty much ALL I do on an inline. Overturn some, or actually, create an off balance condition, and then fix that off balance condition with a hard turn. I am virtually never in a balanced stride like a speed inline skater striding from one foot to another. I just go from arc to arc to arc.
