This isn't meant as a bashing thread, but what possible value is there for Michael Weiss to wear those "Freedom blades"? Do these blades enable him to skater faster, higher, better? I think not. The only thing Weiss can do with his new blades are the offbeat, funky moves when he "stands" on his heels, etc. These may be fine for exhibition programs and professional shows, but they really do not belong in eligible competition. They just don't add anything to his choregraphy. On the contrary, I think they detract from the overall flow of the program - Weiss's herky-jerky stops and starts on the blades. Yuk!
Looks as though Weiss is doing everything he can to add as many unusual moves to his future-professional repertoire.
