When to Get New Skates

If you saw Undertaker's Daughter's skates on the news post you know she waited WAY too long to get new skates.  When is the right time?  As a general rule if your skates are still comfortable and not falling apart there is really no reason to get new ones.  If you really love your boots you can alway upgrade by getting new plates, wheels and bearings.  I recently moved to slim wheels and it really helped my agility.  Also, I followed Undertaker's Daughter and bought the alluminum alloy DA45 degree Avenger plates, and I can't believe how much more agile I am.  Of course, they are forward mounted so if you skate back on your heels you will definitely fall backwards a bunch. Trust me.
