*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
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
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Default Test : Kim Sung Jin Slalom Skates

Sometimes you really feel lucky to work in RoL, for example when you call a brand (Seba) to ask them to test their products (in this case the KSJ) and when they answer on the phone "No problem, I'm sending one to you". After the iGoR skates, RoL had the opportunity to try on the second top-skate of Universkate in the colours of Kim Sung Jin, the Korean champion...

Default Seems higher then needed

Seems like the igor and this new model have a higher deck height then the lower end models. I think you would get better responce from the lowest possible height, but it seems the more expencve skates have a big big space between the boot sole and the frame/wheels . What gives?

It's an illusion, in fact it's pretty much the same. Because there is no liner, and the carbon needs room for the frame screw holes beneith the boot.
