idk about the olis, or a7s, but the haffeys are very cumfy and also easy to grind on. its pretty hard to go wrong with remz skates. the only think about remz is that they are heavy, but then again so are most skates these days

Does anyone know which skates are the lightest, but still comfy and skate well? I have Salomon Brandon Campbells. They're 'okay' in the comfy department, but they're really heavy.

well, xjados are the lightest around. and the comfort is based on whatever skins your wearing inside then, which could be anything from converse shoes to the skins liners they come with. i sound like a xjado rep latley sheesh

just so you know, Razor Genesys boots are the same as their pro skaters boot(with a different liner)

I can't find any place that still has them in a 12

if by pro skates you mean the elliot pro's then no.
http://www.aggressivemall.com/Razor-...r-skate-e3.htm


elliot pro's are the same boot as the Cult LE's and i actually like the elliot pro's better than the genesys. so that probably what i'm gonna go with.

I just got the remz 0602 last month and before I had k2 fatty pros. My k2s where lighter but CHEAP so I made my Remz lighter by taking off the cuff and strap on the outside and leaving the one that goes under the liner and replacing the strap with the buckle/ latch. As far as grinding I had never grind before I got my remz and it took me two tries to get a front side. most of the weight is in the frame so I may change those out with something else.

Question does any one know what the diff in bearing are (5,6,7,8,9??) what does that mean?

the abec rating?

I forgot exactly what it means, but I think it's how close the tolerances are when the bearings being made
