    Is this stick available in Junior size? I know the 2S is.

    Sparx Skate Sharpener - At home sharpener

    Dude, I actually agree with some of your rhetoric/skepticism but I don't know how you haven't gotten banned here!

    You're probably right. I've had Sparx in my saved ebay searches for a while. Used machines come up every now and then but people pay way too close to new prices for them. I guess I did pick up a brand new blade holder for $25 a few months ago, so that was good.

    No, it turned red and kept on sharpening. Sharpening seemed fine so I guess it's a moot point. Sooo, my 1/2" Fire is done. I'm going to buy another as soon as I can sell my 5/8" Fire. I wish I could return it. To me, trying different Sparx hollows seems like an expensive experiment.

    So, I got one skate sharpened today and the red light indicating a depleted ring came on as the first pass on the second skate started. How long do you use your rings? Is the red circle light a warning or is the ring finished when it first appears? I ran 3 passes with the light on, is this a good sharpening?

    Interesting. We had used 1/2" Fire for the last 6 months. We just wanted to try the 5/8 and unfortunately that's a downfall with this automated machine. It cost me $60 and one skate to find out we like the 1/2". Oh well, I suppose I can put it on eBay.

    I tried the 5/8" Fire and got the thumbs down from my son. So we used it once, he didn't like it. But I still own it!
  8. For some people. Especially NHL guys. Not for a junior player who's on the ice 5 times a week with the same $200 stick his parents bought. I don't want it to get all chipped up. We tape often.

    No. I had a buddies Sparx at my house for two months this past summer but he picked up and moved to Scottsdale. Now I have a another friend that owns a Sparx that I can use anytime I want. I've been going out there every week since September but I think I'm wearing out my welcome. Ha! Good excuse to buy my own I figured!?

    Yes. 1/2" Fire. But for sure would be doing a few other families skates so thought that's where the Starter Pack would be good.

    Both! I thought if they have the rings that are in the starter pack, why not sell me those for that price? Hell, I don't even know how much of a savings that is, maybe it's 5 bucks. When you click on the Starter Pack you get a 404. It's not a big deal I just thought they'd say, "yes, we're out of all of this product but here's what we can do." I could still buy the machine and a ring and be alright. I have some sharpening supplies now including the Sparx blade holder.

    Bauer 2s Pro Eyelets?

    Agree. Really grip when new, almost too much, but they'll break in. I just wonder about the volume on the new model and if the tongue will change?

    Almost bought a Sparx yesterday. No starter ring pack, no edge checker, no blade holder available for purchase. No customer service phone number to call. I emailed and they did get back to me today but said it could be "several weeks" before they had these products. Huh? Why don't they just let you pick some rings of your choice and give a discount with machine purchase?

    Can't. They're out of stock.

    Yes the three rings you can buy at a discount with a new machine. I don’t that listed anywhere on the sight. When u buy the machine you should be able to choose three rings of your choice for $100. Or something like that. Also, does anyone remember if Sparx does the $100 off again around New Years? Or was that just Black Friday?
