  1. I never take big clappers or extremely powerful shots from far out, above the top of the circles, so I have always focused on sticks with a quick release. Today, for shits and giggles, I decided to test out a True A5.2 SBP stick in a much higher flex than I usually use. To my surprise I was able to shoot more accurately and powerful in longer than I can even recall! I understand the SBP is more of a variable kick point but the power and accuracy of my shots, all shots, compared to my typical A6.0HT and QRE was very noticable. I have to say that sometimes it's good to try something new and different as opposed to what you're used to. You never know what the result might be. I also found the slightly heavier weight of the A5.2 to be very satisfying. Normally, I prefer the lightest sticks on the market, and while it's only about 420 grams, which is still very light, it's slightly heavier than I normally use. I really liked the small amount of added weight though!

    P28M - Max Height Blade?

    Decided to bite the bullet and order some custom of these. Excited to see how they turn out.

    Sparx Skate Sharpener - At home sharpener

    In Seattle, we have a lot of people who own Sparx sharpeners but they rarely ever bring them to the rink. I have seent hem take them on road trips though.

    P28M - Max Height Blade?

    For those that switched from a P28 to a P28M or vice versa, what positives or negatives did you notice? I'm looking for a slightly bigger toe and from what I can tell this looks perfect for me.

    Regular steel is very good. I prefer the TIN and DLC steel of their though. The downside is that the TIN steel is gold in color which some people might dislike.

    Let's Talk Elbow Pads

    I am a huge fan of the STX elbow pads. Check them out.

    I hear the same story from other places as well but all of these stores were VERY negative on Sparx machines saying there were unreliable and broke often.

    Sparx Skate Sharpener - At home sharpener

    Was very surprised that last week while I was in Arizona for the entire week every shop that had a Sparx sharpener in store said they were either not working, having issues, or needed maintenance. Not a single shop of the 5 I went to had a fully functional and working unit....

    Sparx Skate Sharpener - At home sharpener

    I never measured such but I would say its about the same. Both of their wheels are about the same level of hardness.

    Very high-quality steel and the best DLC coating on the market. Love their stuff. The downside is they are always delayed with shipping and their customer service has been poor.
