Default New Skate Set Up Review

Hello All,

I just wanted to give a rundown on my new setup: Edea Classica boot w/ Roll Line Dance Plate.

I picked em up yesterday and made it out to the rink in time to test them out. I have to say I didnít expect the setup to roll this good! Itís way lighter than my 220s with the Suregrip Super Deluxe plate and a lot more stable. I skated hard last night but didnít feel fatigued in my legs (That usually happens with my 220 setup when I skate hard). The boot is very comfortable, and it took me no time at all to break them in. As for plate performance, well, letís just say Iím amazed. The response is immediate, and I feel very stable when I play the edges. Performing tricks and spins and such were easy once I got a handle on the plate response. Because I have a bit smaller plate on the boot (size 160 plate, 290mm boot) the front wheels are a little more under the balls of my feet. I'll get used to this in no time. I did notice that while doing one-leg toe spins, I felt more in control then I did with my other skates. Even though the floor at this rink is very slippery, I managed to maintain complete control, as the plates seem to want to stay right up under me. At times, I played around to see if I could force myself to fall and most of the time, I wouldn't come close (I sometimes do this to test the limits of the setup at the time I'm skating).

The next couple of times out, my skating sessions will be geared towards really pushing the plates, learning the edges, practicing and adding more to my routines/moves, and loosening up the trucks a click here and there to see how they perform and what I'm comfortable with.
