Need information on Reebok Volt Skate

Does anyone have any experience with these? It's a mid range skate as far as I know, but I need information on the pro's/con's of this skate. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

And if it can be compared to another skate, please compare it (quality wise)

Where would you be getting that from? It sounds like an SMU, I don't think that's a standard RBK skate. Standard RBK skates are 3k, 5k, 7k, 9k notation.

Well, I actually already own them.. Was given them by RBK. I'm looking for some information on them so I know what to look for in a new set of skates, because simply put, I love the feel of the Volts after they break in. Pros/Cons of the skate (GOOD boot construction, BAD ANKLE SUPPORT) and anything else.

scroll down and man that is one ugly skate.

I think that toughs things should be called skats rather than skates. LOL No I'm just joking, but that is the only link I can find with anything to do with the volts.

I do like the RBK Volt hockey bag.

I did find this "The RBK SMU series for souce for sports has the Volt as the low end" on this site.

I don't have the white ones... I have the ones with the green. I really like them. They feel great, and I can skate great with them. They're starting to get a little worn from pucks etc, and I don't have much blade left, so I'm considering getting something new either this year or next. I'm looking for information on the skate so I know what to look for in my next pair lol however stupid that sounds.

I'll ask around but the SMU stuff is hard to compare to full line stuff.

Any information would be great. Even a base "It's based off the RBK 5K skate" (I doubt it is) would be sufficient, really.
