  1. At the end of the day, it is your money so spend it as you see fit. Will it be somewhat awkward? Yes. Is there more to beer league? Believe it or not, yes.
  2. To dismiss the Marsblade ability to provide a "rocker-like" feel for inline skating is baffling to me but then again, I probably do way more ice skating vs. inline skating compared to almost everyone here haha. I only play inline once a week while between playing on two ice hockey teams, playing Shinny at least once a week, and officiating x-1x games a week, the transition from ice to inline improved dramatic when I first used the O1 and continued with my current setup of R1. If you think that using a normal inline chassis is the same using the O1/R1, that tells me that either you don't skate on the ice on a regular basis and/or your Marsblade chassis is setup in a way that it practically has no "rocker" while one is using it for playing/training.
  3. Most people who regularly go back and forth and have a background of ice hockey (and mainly spend their time on the ice throughout the year) have my experience aka the product works. That doesn't mean that there aren't people who have issues with this (or any other) product that works for the majority. You responded to his experience and I responded to your unbelief of the Marsblade "hype." Pretty sure that is permissible around these parts. I also never said that the transition from ice to inline using a normal chassis was impossible. It's just way more of a transition because you can't emulate the "rocker" action that you have and use in ice hockey (which is pretty significant when it comes to the hockey stride). Then again, if you skate in some funky, unnatural way on the ice, maybe the Marsblade would detrimental to your ice + inline experience 😅.
  4. As someone who actively plays and officiates ice hockey, the Marsblade is the best thing to happen to inline hockey. Any other inline chassis forces someone like me to complete change the way I skate when I play inline hockey. And I'll have nights when I play both inline and ice within hours of each other. Nothing can replace being on the ice: way too unique of a process to do so. What I do know is that Marsblade makes the transition less dramatic to someone like me whose muscle memory is based off of ice hockey skating. If you just play inline, the Marsblade really isn't going to mean much to do.
  5. Yea, this is what I figured. I can still work the boot to punch out the sore spots. Just wanted to make.
  6. Is there anyone who took our the stock footbeds and replaced them with something else? I'm thinking that the stock FBs are too think for me but not sure if I should spring for something else.
  7. Perfect video. I'll need to do this with my True Customs: I have one sore spot that can absolutely use this technique.
  8. I can't tell you the difference from an end-user perspective as I only got my True Customs last month and finally will be using them tomorrow night for a beer league triple. What I did find out from the guys at my local Pure Hockey store is that CCM gives the most options when it comes to make the type of skate you want (the "Total Custom Plus" option). Fit-wise, I'd still think that True is the way to go because they work around your actual feet. Would be curious what others have to say. I'm looking forward to being able to officiate in total comfort for the first time ever haha.
  9. Funny that this thread gets revived given my "issue" with 288 vs 280 LS Edge Holders. Definitely think that going with 280 is the right choice for me. I'll have to spend more money but hopefully I can find a good Black Friday deal(s) 🙏
  10. Buying an Edge Checker has been huge for me since I got my Sparx Machine back in February. Being "level" is something that is noticeable when you're not.
  11. That's dope to hear. I don't plan on using the Shift Holder but will probably just buy the 280 LS Edge Holder. The 288 LS Edge Holder just makes me nervous with it's length.
  12. For starters: I'm pretty sure this has been covered before but I tried searching this Topic to no avail. I just got my first pair of SVH Customs and wanted to have a spare set of Bauer Tuuks (LS Edge) Holders put on. The issue is that I have 288's and they seem to be a little too long for my skates. My gut feeling is to get the 280 Holders. For those that were in a similar situation: what did you end up doing?
  13. Welcome to the group. The skates look nice. You don't really have this kind of understated look these days.
