I remember seeing Twister liners listed on the Freewave website. I've never dealt with them, and I can't read Korean, but I have heard of people outside Korea who've ordered custom made skates from them. Here's the link, I hope it might be useful:

The price is good Ôé¼+35 but the foam of the liners is bad.

Compared to FR liners it really is.^^ Still don't understand RB why they do not improve their liners nor willed to sell them. Hence we all go to Seba and Co.

FR2 old or new version? Old did suck due to the low quality frame mounting hole in the toe box. They fixed that in the new version (more open cut of the shell).

While this conversation has kicked off again - does anyone know if any of the Rollerblade liners would work with my old Tecnicas?

RB Twister liners will fit Tecnicas since it's essentially the same shell only less holes. Though I'd rather recommend FR-liners due to better padding in the ankle area.

Bebai, did you put in some smooth hard-plastic insoles?

Inside the FR liners or the high? I didnt need to customize the twisters for it to be comfortable so the bottom line still is that not everybody really thinking that the RB liners are crap. Maybe it has a short life span but its been good on my feet for over a yr now n counting with loads of hours of skating in them :)

Inside the High due to the quite wide hard-plastic grid under the flimsy layer of fabric.

Once you roll freeride with FR liners you will never ever want to downgrade to RB liners. Besides, they last longer.

I think we have established that i had both options and still opted for the RB ones. If Rollerblade sold aftermarker liners, i wouldn't hesitate to buy em.

Don't worry RB will never do. And that's good for Seba and all other companies. :D

Good to know, although I don't think I need any extra ankle padding.
