I am considering purchinsing this frame to mount eventually to some top of the line ice boot(probably CCM vector pro, as i can get a really good price on those) and was wondering if anyone had seen them in person or even better, used them. they look real nice and are suposedly really light. Also the description on hockey monkey dosent say if they are high-low or not. Can anybody tell me if they are. here is a link to them on hockey monkey: http://www.hockeymonkey.com/redstaralloychas.html

One of my players recently bought the chassis and I had them mounted on his Nike HiHo skates because he loves the boot. I noticed speed improvement. The skates are extremely light with the Red Star Chassis and they look great. The player is an ice player and is used to the fast pivot from front to back skating and I can deffinately see where he is more comfortable because of the weight. The HiHo boot with the Red Star Chassis are REALLY Light!

Thanks for yor reasponses, Could you help me on which size to get also though. The sizing chart says a small is for sizes 6-8.5 and Med for 9.0-9.5. my nexed boots are an 8.5, but if i were a mission i would me 9.5 or in ccm i am a 8.0 so which size would be the right chassis size for me?
you could go either way, a medium chassis will be a bit longer and give you a bit more pushing leverage,

But the smalls would probably give me better manuverability, right?
Until my son started using the Hum'ers I might have said so, as that was always the theory..short chassis for manuverability, long chassis for straight line speed. But those Hum'er chassis' with bigger wheels haven't hurt his skating at all. The extra leverage turns out to be more valuable to him....I think you are only talking about 1/4" so...it's not all that much gain either way.
