Nice skates!, October 29, 2012 By Aj (Las Vegas, NV)
I ordered these skates a few months ago and i really like them havent skated in 6 years and these are perfect for getting back into the swing of things. Only thing i would change is get some lighter frames and smaller wheels to go with. The weight is decent and the 72s provide a VERY smooth ride. For the price THESE are awesome!
Sick skate for the price!, August 16, 2012 By Drew (Billings, MT)
This is definitely one of Rollerblade's best skates to date... it blends the old school comfort and steez of the TRS softboot with the huge powerblade-style frames and wheels.
This is definitely one of my favorite setups I've ever had. The huge wheels roll so fast and smooth! For the money, it's a great deal too. You get 16 wheels in the box for multiple rocker setups. In my opinion, this beats powerblading because you can actually grind slot tricks. The boot itself has ample room and would probably accomodate sizing down. too.
The frames slide really nice, but are definitely taller than the standard. Slot tricks & topsides require you to really lay over your boot. I'd recommend an additional pair of frames to swap out on
Good buy, June 30, 2012 By Anonymous (Baltimore, MD)

4 Stars!!, December 1, 2011 By CWRskaterMikel
Really great skates and and fairly large negative plate for those grinds and stalls. the Liner is a little on the hard side though but still a very AW3S0M3 skate! Recommend to beginners and intermediate skaters!
4 Stars!!, September 19, 2011 By Forest Davis
These skates are pretty good. I think someone else said this too but make sure you tighten the frames because one of my bolts fell off at an all day session at skate barn after an hour so yeah. Mine also creak a lot?

These skates are cool except for the HUGE frames and giant wheel fore and aft. I replaced the frames and wheels with something smaller and they ride good. As-is
4 Stars!!, April 11, 2011 By Nick
Overall this is a pretty good skate. extremely comfortable. Tons of toe room. The liner is great. havent even come close to a blister. you can ride with no socks and be fine. I didn't like the 72's too much so i'm going to get a GC flt 2 frame. buy some new wheels though.. they're awful. RW has a 72 for sale in a nice blue to match. Happy rollin everyone!

4 Stars!!, January 29, 2011 By j1mb0
01/29/11 Just got my point 8's yesterday! they're my first pair of aggressive inline skates and i really like them. Very comfy for brand new blades. The liners feel great and i like the 72mm wheels with the anti rockers. they also come with (8) 56mm wheels if you like the roll that way. only few downsides i found where there is not that much ventilation going on

5 Stars!!, February 16, 2010 By pro skater in x games
look people this is great for beginners also great for the non rich families i understand that people don't have a lot of money to spend on skates that is why i think you should buy these because they have basically replaceable parts like grind pads and you can use these for a long time i bought these used them for 10 years the wheels i give a 10 star for the greatest i also believe that these should be used for all ages so if you just started or know what your doing buy them these are thank you for reading
5 Stars!!, November 13, 2009 By T3VO
DUDE. ok where do i start? i just got these skates about 5 hours ago and let me tell u. THESE ARE SICK!!! the soul plate is wide as uk. and the 72mm wheels are duh bomb. if your lookin at buyin these skates. DO IT!! its the best deal ever. the only thing i dont like is when u put on the 56 mm you cant put on the anti rockers too cuz their too big. but other than that. im all for these things 100%
5 Stars!!, November 7, 2009 By Seth

5 Stars!!, October 22, 2009 By mastablada
these skates are the best ever made
5 Stars!!, September 2, 2009 By Ben
the skate itself is amazing i love the 72 mm wheels rolls fast and you stay strapped in my only problem is the liner comfortable but hits my shins and makes them very unpleasant
5 Stars!!, August 17, 2009 By Benistheshif
this skate is awesome fast as hell and slides flawlessly i definitly would recomend to everyone there heavy skates real heavy in comparison to others but it helps em. super fast sliding skates as well. theres also alot of different ways you can configure the wheel the 72s are sick though in my own opinion.
