They did not leave Korea yet. I wanted some T-shirts added to the box which delayed shipping but I hope that early this week Captain Yang will send them.

Mounting blocks are centered according to a 243mm Seba frame, I hope it will work well for me. Mounting of 243 and 255mm Seba frames is the same, the only difference is distance between axles.

Yes, if it is centered for the 243, it will also be centered for the 255.

For the T-shirts, I got one with my Harimau too but the sizes are Korean sizes = smaller than European sizes, take at least one size bigger than you take in Europe.

The boots arrived this Tuesday, shipping was crazy quick (Thursday sent by Captain Yang from Seoul, Friday at airport in Incheon, Saturday in customs office in Slovakia, Tuesday in my happy hands).

Picture below shows how I mounted the frame. I can't quite decide on the position, either this or one hole forward. I think most people prefer (if there are 2 reasonable options to choose from) to go with front wheel sticking slightly in front, but I'll yet have to see.

I think before passing any sort of deeper judgement I will skate for at least 2 weeks in them. But most importantly:
- I do not feel malleolus pain!
- They are stiff and light and very reactive
- I am able to skate with confidence - on iGor I felt completely puzzled and had lot of pain for the first couple of practices, which I think confirms that iGor boot is not compatible with my feet, which in turn confirms my legs are plain bad - contrary to all my friends who simply love their iGors.
- I do have some pain issues here and there at several spots (e.g. toenails and rear edge of the boot especially when standing on toes), but the edge of the boot was painful on iGor as well before it softened up... I think these small issues will solve themselves.
- I would prefer to be able to tighten the boot a bit more in the buckle area, but anytime I do it and start to skate the buckle snaps back. Again I hope this will improve as the boot softens up a bit.



Today I had a lucky day and sold my iGors to a colleague at work who found them very nice and comfortable. He is not a slalom skater but plays ice hockey so he liked the stiff boot (he tried also my old Highs and found them too heavy - I guess if you are used to ice skates that is understandable).
