Hello :)

I'm looking for blade advice - I'm currently in Jackson freestyles (bought them 3 months ago) but the aspire xp blade feels impossible to spin on. Im always rocking back and forth on my toe pick trying to find the rocker.

I'm working on jumps up to flip and can get maybe 4 rotations on an upright spin on a good day.

What blades would you recommend? I've heard good things about coronation ace, mk Pro and ultima legacy 7 blades but I'm not sure which one would be the best out of the 3 as they're all 7" rockers.

Thanks!

Aspire blades aren't great. You're going to have the same issue with Legacy bc they also have the flatter rocker. Go look at either MK Pro or Coronation Ace.

As @Ic3Rabbit says above, you need either Coronation Ace or MK Professional. It's the spin rocker you need to worry about in this case, not the blade rocker. (Also, don't stress over the 7' vs 8' rocker, either. It's no biggie and you can adjust perfectly well to either.)
