I'm a tall, pretty average sized skater who started skating about 9 months ago and these were far and away the best gear upgrade I made to improve my skills. These toe stops are a dream come true. I bought used skates with some Snyder stops, which were okay, but I was really struggling with toe stop work and falling forward while running on my stops. These toe stops almost make it too easy. I run around and do ladders on them all the time in our practice space, I think my trainers think I'm nuts. They're just so stable! Just make sure you screw them in TIGHT - it bugs me when they spin around and the straight edge is facing the wrong way.
