    Never used either one. I had Coronation Aces, which I liked, and now have Ultima Elites, which I also like. Are you looking for new blades?

    Yes, looking for new blades. I have cornation comets at the moment, but I need new blades. Since I'm only coaching now I don't need anything with a huge toepick but if I need to jump to demonstrate or just for fun I would like a toepick that suitable. I need 9 1/4" if anyone has a good pair of blades!

    If you liked the Comet, why not stick with it? Sure it's primarily a jumping blade, but you'd be used to it by now, and it's not expensive to the point of a Gold Seal or anything.

    I have neither -- have daughter's old Vantage Vision which, I've been told, are no longer made?

    I've heard good things about Ultima -- BD has Graf blades and likes them.

    I had Corination Comets but when I got my Graf boots I switched to Pattern 99's. Both are John Wilsons.

    Blades

    Hello

    I've always had Coronatin Ace so I cant say, but hazard a guess at the MKs being a more "advanced" blade.

    blades

    from what i've read the coronation ace is a really good blade because it has a dovetail edge. the pattern 99 is a parallel blade and so is the professional that i currently use. i have also read that the coronation ace is good for the freestyle 3-8 or up and the professional is used in all the advanced levels. The gold seal i've been told is supposed to be only used in the very top levels like 8-10. so i guess what i'm trying to say is you need to do the research to find out what would be best for the level you are in and what you are working for.
