I came up with an answer, last night.

Synder Royal, Titanium. Cost is the same as the Matrix steel.

I want to weigh both combos and see for the price, which is better.

I know I like the Royal action better than the Energy. Now is the weight of the titanium lighter than the steel?

Larry O and thanks for the posts!
good luck, depends on how thick the titanium is i guess lol. just hope the action isnt too quick for freestyle.

Smile The action should be the same as the Imperial.

The Royal is suppose to be the same plate as the Imperial, except it has been machined to reduce as much metal as possible. The trucks have been changed to save more wt. Then they went to the Titanium Axels and King pins.

I grew up skating on Imperials. I recently skated on the Imperial until I got the Dance Plates for Dance. I found the Dance plates made the pain go away doing certain "Weave" dances that skate back and forth across the baseline. Because there is so much action. Too much for Freestyle.

So, I think the Royal with the Concerto boot should be a lite skate with the best action. Also if you look closely the rear axel on the Imperial/Royal is more under the center of the rear heel of the boot. This I think makes spinning a little more easier. By having the axel more back to the rear of the heal of the boot makes it better for Heel Spins where the front wheels are off the ground.


Sincerely,

Larry Otani



P.S. I feel the beauty of Roll Line and Edea Boots skate is the lite wt skate. 7 lbs for my Boots and roll line plates. 10 lbs for the Imperials and traditional/heavier boots. If the Royals are as light as the Energy, they should be the hot ticket. You can always go to titanium Energys, but the cost is 300 dollars more.
