Rollerblades for 2010 season

So the new 2010 roller hockey season is upon us soon and it's time for me to get new rollerblades

I need advice on what to get and planning to order online and ship to Blaine as I live in Surrey. Will spend 200-300 bucks.

In the past I've worn the mission HE5500 which was by far my favorite. I've also had wicked 7s and currently using wicked 5s but it's beat up as hell.

Been only using mission but willing to try new brands.

What do you fabulous people of Revscene recommend? I know the differences between each type of rollerblade is barely anything around that price but might as well give this a try and maybe you guys can help sway my decision.

Thanks in advance

i'd hate to say this, but the most comfortable boot i've ever put my foot in, are my CCM vector somethings.

they're even better than my ice skates.

albeit i have flat feet, to a point i wear custom insoles for my shoes

I'm using vector 8 and I have to agree with you, very comfortable skate. But if I were to get new skates I would get the Bauer rx:60, Pretty much the Bauer X:60 ice skate with a hi lo frame designed by mission

I hear Tour makes some nice skates but I haven't tried them myself as nobody carries them locally. I only wear Mission but if I ever buy another pair in the future I'd probably have a chassis mounted onto an ice boot.
