*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Slalom Cone Skating Forum Discussions about slalom cone skating, high-jump, and other freestyle trick skating. (Note that vert, street, and park skating discussions should be posted in our aggressive skating forum.)

Default Seba Fr1 heel mount vs Twister’s

Howdy! I have some Rollerblade Twister Pro’s, and since the frame bolts directly to the plastic boot, there seems to be a bit of flex. My understanding is the Seba’s have aluminum heel mounting blocks. I was wondering if they are noticeably more responsive due to this or not. Anybody have experience with both?

Hi Darthblader. I never had a pair of rollerblade twisters (or pros), but I have had Rollerblades and Sebas.

I can imagine that Seba's would definitely last longer (given the material...aluminum vs plastic). As for responsiveness...I'm going to venture that, yes, aluminum would be just a bit more responsive. Mostly though, I think it may be the hard shell of the boot that makes a slalom skate more responsive.

I still think that the skater is the most important part of the equation.

I can say with 100% certainty that my Seba's have outlasted any other skate I have ever owned. I skate 24/7. If you're thinking about investing, go with the best. Rollerblades are great, Sebas and Powerslide are better for slalom.
