    My coach says it is "high time" for new skates....!!!!! I've passed pre-pre MITF and have just today learnt my waltz jump, toe loop and salchow. At the moment I'm skating in Riedells, Blue ribbons I think, with the standard blade. When I was jumping today it was evident I need more ankle support. Without paying the earth, can anyone suggest skates/blades appropriate for my level? Anyone had any personal experience with a pair of skates that would suit me? I'm skating approx 4 hours a week, I'm 1.54 and 100 pounds. Hoping to get all my singles maybe some early doubles eventually.

    Lots of skaters at my rink around your level/weight like Jackson Competitors. The blade they come with is decent up to axel, but you might consider upgrading it to a Ultima Protege or Coronation Ace

    Coronation Ace are a good all purpose blade that don't cost too much.
