*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Default Snow Whites vs Pics

Hello everyone!

I know this will have been asked before, so apologies, but I figured (no pun intended) that things will have changed since then.

I am a beginning ice skater who is looking to practise off the ice on artistic inlines, but I would also be interested in taking up artistic inline as a separate sport. I am currently working between Skate UK levels three and four (which seems to be somewhere between USFSA's Adult 2 and Adult 3 grades) so am really not that far in, however I don't want to spend a lot of money an inline frame that potentially I then outgrow in a year and a half. I'd be very grateful if any of you would be able to tell me from experience what difference the PIC 'Professional' frames (994 and P-73) makes over the 'Performer' frames (894 and P-53). Is it just the build quality and weight or is there a difference in the shape of the frame?

Also, in your opinions are three wheels better than four? Of course, right now I'm a beginner , but if the frames are going to last a number of years, I'd probably rather get a higher-performance one if it's not going to hinder me now, so that if I get to that level I won't have to go out and buy another. I hear that most high-level competitors these days are using Snow Whites, and my feet are too big for the three-wheeled Pics so it's between the traditional Pics and the Snow Whites. Is there a big difference in spins and tight edgework, etc. with the three wheels over the four? I don't think I'm too fussed about the weight of the frame as I'm tall and quite heavy, so the difference is likely to be negligible.

Also, any other advice you have would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks a lot

Quick update, just got off the phone with the Pic people, apaprently there's no difference between the frames, would be nice if the site mentioned that, the Professional outfit is the same as the Performer, but with the ball Pic instead of the cylindrical one, and the Geneva wheels installed. So one can buy the performer outfit and fit a ball Pic and vice versa.
