I know you have a budget, but in the end it is well worth customizing your skates.
If you want a good pair of inline skates, you need to buy a high end pair of ice skates, and then get a top end frame mounted on them.
There is a huge difference between buying off the shelf rollerblades and customized ones.
For my money no skate is better for roller hockey than Mission. They are always lighter than the other skates, especially Tour, CCM's and Reeboks. Just pick up a pair of the $500 Reeboks and then pick up a pair of $500 Missions. Huge difference. I use Easton for ice though, Mission ice skates just don't have the same technology.
