    Anyone with thoughts on these blades? (not the matrix blades)

    We went for them without reviews. She loves them. Coming from the MK Pro - the first spins were wonky, but now they are centered. They travel a little when she changes position, but that will come soon. She said edges are more responsive. On a side by side comparison the 150's are higher. The pick doesn't appear much bigger but it's more aggressive. The 150's are much more curved on the rocker. I noticed that she doesn't seem to have to work as hard - for example, in top form in her old blades she could power pull on one leg around the rink once. She is coming from a long break and went 1.5 times around the rink on the one foot without putting her foot down. She does have to get used to the shape - she doesn't seem to trust sitting back on the blade yet. These compare to gold star/gold seal.
