    Okay, just a quick post to say a big thank you to all of you again, especially Neilime and Walid.
    Though I haven’t bought new plates yet (I’ll probably get a Lazer plate in T2 from Hawaiisurf as you all recommended), I took your advice and tightened my trucks on my ‘artistic’ skates. I also put in firmer bushings (94A, before that I had had very soft Variflex Clouds, about 75A). Today was my first chance to try out this set-up and wow . . . suddenly I was able to do everything in a 80 cm line (before I could only do most tricks in a 120 line), getting around cones didn’t take as much effort as it had before and I learned a new trick (the Nelson :oops:) as well. I was also able to do a « Shoot the duck » (though not yet around cones, of course – I’m not that good) – that got the inliners green with envy :wink:.
    Merci beaucoup to you for taking the time to answer all my questions (and in English on top of that) and helping me to significantly improve my skating 🙂 🙂 🙂 !!

    My new frames have arrived from Hawaiisurf:

    And after my 7mm bearings were delivered, I couldn’t resist putting wheels on the axles . . .

    . . despite the fact that I haven’t got any boots yet :).

    I got my newly mounted slalom skates yesterday and I think they’re great 🙂 . Here they are:




    (still a bit insecure on my new skates :wink:)
    I had them mounted in a figure and rink hockey skating shop, and I was really lucky to get these boots. They are special roller skating boots, lower at the back, which aren’t usually available anymore. I only got them because the supplier didn’t have any black Risport Etoiles left in my size and offered these instead – for the price of Etoiles 😀 .
    Although they aren’t very hard as figure skating boots go (only a bit harder than Etoiles), they still seem like iron clamps to me at the moment – well, I reckon I’ll get used to that in a while.
