I believe that once a person has nailed the few basic skating movements (crossovers, tight turns, stop-and-starts on a dime, quick Fwd-Back transitions and pivots), upgrading to stiffer skates will yield benefits with each step, albeit diminishing marginal benefits (unless you're a pro).
I can't tell you whether or not it will be worth it, you'll have to decide yourself. However, if they fit well and you intend to keep them around for a while, then that's a great deal. The S17s are really stiff and really light.
