10'/20' (Detroit 1)

Recommended Posts

Profile 1 – Detroit 1 (10/20)

Steel - Bauer LS5 254

Hollow- 90/50 FBV

Background

Older skater who has been skating for over 40-years. Played high school hockey and some college hockey.  Currently playing 3 times a week at a competitive level.  Over the years I have tried many different profiles ranging from doubles, a triple, couple of quads, and Pro Skate Balance’s 35/65.  I started out with the stock profile in an attempt to reset myself before beginning testing profiles for the ProSharp Project.

Review

First impression was somewhat similar to the Glide 60 in that I could immediately feel that there was a lot of steel in contact with the ice. Felt gains in acceleration, speed, and stability over the standard 10’ profile but at the expense of agility and mobility. Probably better suited for someone who’s game is predominantly straight line and doesn’t compliment my style of play.

I have now skated on four vastly different profiles covering single, dual, triple, and quadruple radii.  While I can safely say that I immediately knew that 2 of the these profiles (Glide 60 and Detroit 1) wouldn’t work for me I still have to spend more time with the Zuperior and Quad 0 to figure out which one is better for me. That’s the next test for me.

Acceleration- 3 

Mobility- 2 

Stability- 4

Speed- 4

* Similar impression to that of the Glide 60. if my game consisted of nothing but up and down the ice skating in a straight-line fashion then this would be good for the speed and stability factors.
