Default New Plates


I would like to update my skates. For the last 5 years I've been on DA45 plate, (aluminum for the last 2 years). I'd really like to get something lighter if possible. I understand the Mag is about 15% lighter.

Can someone please tell me if they have used both the Arius platinum and the Roll-line killer and if they preferred one over the other?

For reference, I am 120lbs 5'6'', like to pick my feet up a lot, run on my skates, I do use toe stops to move around- I have them flush and still trip up on them sometimes until they are worn down when skating.

also, I will most likely upgrade my boot-I've had the vanilla brass knuckle for 5 years as well. still very comfy, but not sure how much longer it will last. My guess is I will go with a bont. Looking for light and super comfy. I see that they have a plate as well. If anyone has an opinion they would like to share on the Infinity plate and the bont bearings, I would love to hear that too.

Thank you so much for your help.
