Guide Review - Review of Jackson Freestyle Skates

Jackson Freestyle skates are an excellent choice for a figure skater who is advancing from the beginner level to an intermediate or advanced level. The boots are comfortable and are not that heavy. The extra padding adds to the comfort of the boot. The soles are durable and the boots are strong.

The attached blade that comes with this boot-blade skate combination is not of the highest quality, but is sufficient for figure skaters who are just beginning to master single jumps, axels, double jumps, and most spins. Since the blade can be removed with screws, there is the option of just purchasing the Jackson Freestyle boot without the attached blade. With that option, the figure skater can attach the blade of his choice and take advantage of the high quality of the Jackson Freestyle boot.

The Jackson Freestyle model makes it possible for figure skaters to purchase a good skate at a reasonable price.
