firstly, i'm new to this forum. so hello everyone :)

secondly, i need some advice on new skates because ....

2 years ago i bought some anarchy combats ( biking was my main hobby so excuse the 'noob' skates ), just skated around on them on my ramps and stuff, not taking things seriously, just for skating for pure fun. then i started trying things on my mini ramp, nothing extreme, just like small airs, stalls, spine transfers (at local skateparks). i really did enjoy it, more than my biking in fact. so that leads on to the question.

well i was wondering what new beginner/intermediate skates i should get, or if i should get new skates at all.
i was thinking just a step up from my old anarchy's, something a bit more advance.
i have in mind :
Roces Graal Blake Dennis Ufs
Salomon St-originals

thats about it really.
i have a budget of about 100 (i don't want to like blow out on them, they'll only be my second pair)

so, any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

Oli

Seeing you said hi to me in my own thread, lets do the same back in this one.

Hey welcome fellow noob :)

I cant give much advice other than searching the net I have looked at a lot of skates the past few days..I think you would be hard pushed finding those Roces for 100...however you want an upgrade to a UFS system frame....have you considered these Roces Type-R on sale down to 99, nice looking skates....
