  1. Nexus D or an equivalent in another boot would be the next step. Seems like the width of the boot in the middle of the skate is problematic here. Another option would be TRUE skates custom to order.
  2. Mine came with them as well. Yours should've. If not, reach out to Sparx. I'm sure they can help out.
  3. Hope they're chipping in for the wheels. I'm sure you're blowing through them.
  4. New Jersey Devil's EQM dealt with this before. They have some heavy duty equipment to fix this. Considering I'm not sure what you have access to, I'll provide the video anyway.
  5. The ordering system on their site allows you to order one blade if that's what you're looking for. You can also choose the blade finish. Hope this helps.
  6. Works like a charm. If you're considering it, just buy it. You won't be disappointed.
  7. Personally, I've had success with the Bauer Nexus 1000. I've found the level of protection all the way around to be great. I've taken slap shots off the top of the knee. Wrist shots to the back of the calf. While they're a larger pad, they definitely hold up.
  8. If this is the first time sharpening it, make sure you run ten passes per skate. That's the Sparx recommended amount for brand new steel.
  9. When I put mine in for the first time, I agree they felt strange. I almost felt my feet were claustrophobic. After getting on the ice with them and breaking them in a bit, they fit amazing and definitely eat up a ton of negative space. I wouldn't go without them.
  10. Little update here. Got a chance to skate last night after my first Sparx sharpening. I'm not going to comment on the whole 30+ years of experience sharpening vs. the Sparx, as it seems like we've concluded that debate somewhat. What I can say is compared to the cuts I've received for the last two and half years from my LHS, the Sparx was right on par with my previous sharpenings. Edges seemed consistent and felt very reliable. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the machine.
  11. Just got my Sparx sharpener for Christmas. I've cut two pairs of skates at this point. I'll get my first go with the blades in tonight's game. From my little experience with it, I can say that it's very easy to setup. If you follow the instructions step-by-step and take your time, you'll get it setup without any issues. As for the cut quality, visually it all looks great. The steel also deburrs pretty easy. I'll know more on the performance side after tonight and can shed some more light later. So far, I'm quite impressed.
