So I will stick to my lighter-than-Boen weight plastic plate skates for now, at least until I can test some Boens without actually having to buy them.

I was saying a skater is not going to perform as well on a skate he/she is not comfortable with.

But having said that, I wonder how many World Title holders have used a Slider.

Go and try a set if you like. But geez, if you put your super duper cushion upgrade on them I will cry.
