I'm looking for some info and opinions on these blades - there isn't much information around on the internet about them. I have been rink guarding and don't want to break down my good skates, so I was going to try to find some inexpensive or used blades and put them on the boots I had recently put the figure blades on (I haven't been using them, so...), then use those for guarding. I couldn't find what I was looking for, but found brand new Graf Lausannes for half price. I decided I was better off spending $100 for $200 blades than $75 for beginner blades, and figured it's possible that I might want to use them for real skating (vs guarding) in the future, so I ordered them. I would like to know how the Lausannes compare to Coronation Ace blades, aside from the rocker being different (Lausanne is 8ft, Coronation Ace is 7ft). I would also like to know what it is like skating on an 8ft rocker compared to 7ft, since I have only ever used 7ft rocker blades (MK Professional and Coronation Ace). Thanks in advance for the feedback/info.
