  1. I had a few of these in the shed & decided to put them to use on the ice & was I surprised! The feel for the puck is a noticeable improvement over carbon for me but there is a weight difference between the two. I'll use them up before I have to spend up on some expensive twigs!
  2. Anyone know what curve equivalent this koho blade would be ?
  3. With pro stock though wouldn't the boot be made for the players foot or is say like a standard size boot with customisations, tongue,liner, holder size,stiffer & so forth?
  4. Looking at some new skates & considering the ribcor 100k's , they have been out for awhile now so there durability should be well known. When they first came out there was a post which showed there quarter package all cracked up but can't seem to find it, anyone got some experience with them , are they holding up? Are they worth buying?
  5. I asked a player using them recently what he thought about them & he said he didn't notice anything different from LS holders.
  6. If you need more protection for your knees try Smith's knee gaskets the ones skateboarders use , they are a compression fit with padding.
  7. How's this for a alternative to a cat eye player cage! Vintage CCM half cage
  8. You could always fit your own chin cup ,what worries me is if the toe of the stick can fit thru the cat's eye?
  9. Because I am not playing roller for now I won't experiment on wheel combo as the 72/76 is extremely maneuverable in the small area I am skating on. If I was playing on a rink I would definitely be testing the 76/80 but for now I love the medium chassis with the 72/76 set up they are easy to throw around in tight directions in comparison the large O1's feel clunky & i don't enjoy using them. I have had a large R1 before, the medium definitely work better for me. If your using them in competition it would definitely be a personal thing depending on the type of player you are & rink size/surface.
  10. They way I took it is his designing a true one piece boot , the holder & boot being one piece.
  11. Thx for the links , interesting that this clip is a year ago so maybe the D'Cosi skates might come out this year?
  12. Recently I went with a medium chassis instead of the large for my 8.5 Bauer's & for outdoor off rink skating I been using 76 rear & 72mm front with the ice like insert as a result it flexes really well & it feels better then my 01"s. If I end up playing roller again I will test that combo because we have a small rink around here & agility over top line speed works better for me. I know the recommended wheel size is 80mm /76mm but 76mm/72mm still works because it's still 4mm difference from fron to rear, reducing the length of the chassis too if your boot size is on the border of the large & medium also allows for more leverage in the rocker, it might work for some skaters.
  13. A few games in now & they feel great no sketchy feeling at all so I did need a adjustment initially, I am yet to loose my edge with these blades by far my favourite runners!
  14. That could be a problem if they are 3/4 because of the soft ice I skate on. Its kind of strange that on one hand i feel the improvement in crossovers ,c cuts, tight cornering , mohawks & acceleration but on the other hand if I get lazy with my posture it can grab a slight edge. A similar feeling is when I had T- blades that where too sharp & they go in a rut. Having said this I will go as far as say they have a edge (no pun intended) on the competition in my opinion & I have tried marsblades first gen ,second gen,step DLC, bladetech & others apart from flare.
  15. I skate on soft ice , the hollow is 1 inch ,it kind of feels like I got half inch near the toe like there eager to grab a corner if I am making any sense.No doubt that's because of the various flaring at the toe. Other then that I am very impressed with them & I have had no other blade that can hold a edge like them.
