    Step steel blades brittle/chipping every skate!

    If they were its possible they were over heated.
  2. Take all but the back 2 rivets out and start over. And I meant warranty on the steel.
  3. Check blade alignment first. Makos probably older boot so could have taken a shot and the blade/holder has a slight bend. If it is an older boot it could be some breakdown. If it's more one way that's where to start before changing other things.

    1 year warranty. Had them profiled?
  5. What is worse turning left or right? What kind of akates and steel?

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    Sounds like a major fit error on the scan. Never had that issue. Not that small anyway. But not sure who they were able to refund? Very odd mentioned.

    Adding pitch to skate without heel lifts or profiling?

    Red Dog Hockey Boost. Technically yes you can but just adding it for the sake of adding it to hopefully put him in the right spot is a simple shot in the dark

    Stiffness of skates

    Not sure where you see an argument and especially quoting me about me thinking Daryl is a great guy? It just so happens I have worked with him for 3 years every summer. I don't agree with his technique but learned why and how he does it and at the end, we agreed that there is good and bad doing this way. Where is the argument?

    Amazing man. So nice to chat with. And an amazing skater.

    Stiffness of skates

    But you cant play a game with no laces so while strengthening may happen it's not practical. Its interesting

    Stiffness of skates

    But shouldn't the blades be realigned properly to do this? Doing this on skates with bad alignment makes zero sense? Aligned yes....

    You need to go to LA. Daryl Evan's I believe his name is skates with no laces at all. Great teacher and awesome gentlemen. I personally disagree but after talking for hours with him we came to a mutual understanding of the bio mechanics and his theory.

    Painting Helmet Vents?

    How about not ruin a perfectly good helmet and void all warranty and or protection standard for a 10 year old. A you need is something going wrong and the plastic getting weak and some stupid person taking a slap shot and hitting the kid on the head.... You may laugh and say BS... it happened. Kid got a puck in the forehead and the paint caused the plastic to go soft. Lucky only a few cuts and a concussion. Dont paint helmets...please
  15. Personally after reading all of this.... it's being way over thought. One major issue I keep finding on boots is where we might think blade center is is not necessarily center. And definitely not center for each individual. I have started mounting or recounting blades with 1 rivet in the front and one in the back where I feel it's right for that customer. So far the success rate is far higher than when I would guess were center might be and make it so. Using the inside of the center of the boot on the heel has been huge. And its amazing how far off some skates are. Including customs and top of the line skates.
