I was hesitant about purchasing an "SR" pad coming from previous "Pro" pads from 2 different companies. These have exceeded my expectations They have seen well over 120 skates and show no wear at all. I cannot say the same for my last 2 sets. Bang for the buck is outstanding. They are light and extremely quick to put on and off. So happy that I will buy another set in a different colour just for fun. After all 2 sets are the same price as 1 set of "Pro".
