New goalie leg pads help

My brother is looking at getting a new set of goalie leg pads. He plays competitive inline hockey and is looking to upgrade his existing beginner "CCM RGP10 Roller Hockey Leg Pads(http://www.hockeyworld.com/index/page/product/product_id/434/product_name/CCM+RGP10+Roller+Hockey+Leg+Pads)". These are the models he is currently looking at:

His budget is 250$ and would like to stay under it. Hes looking for the best possible pad for the money.
He's got some questions:
Whats the difference in durability between roller hockey pads and ice pads, and can he use ice pads for inline without them getting torn up?
Which of the above are trash and which are decent?
Playing on an inline rink, which would hold up the very best? I'm not looking to replace these pads every year (or even every three years), so Id like something that can withstand sliding and whatnot on an inline rink. I dont want to deal with duct taping the sides or having to buy an external slider either. I want to be able to use the pads as is, for a long time.



Thanks for taking the time to help me out
