Hello, I have a question about Phantom Blades. I'm just starting on doubles and trying to get my axel consistent, but my coach wants me to get new blades, preferably Phantoms. I've heard that Phantoms have quite large toe-picks, and was wondering if they would be good for a skater just starting to work on doubles.
Phantoms are typically good for jumps. I don't personally use them but friends who do say they're great. What blades are you using now? If you're still in beginner blades, the change to a huge toe pick could be a problem as opposed to gradually stepping up. I jump up to double loop in Visions, which are kind of like baby Phantoms. I was going to upgrade to Phantoms too but decided to go with Gold Stars because my spins and turns need more help than jumps.
