  1. Super minor, just use a dab of flexible glue like shoe goo and clamp it. It will hold. I used shoe goo on the liner for my vapor 1X tendon guard, previous owner had used his one skate to pry his other skate off. Shoe goo did the job. It’s been about 18 months. injected eyelets are a bitch, in my opinion. Maybe waxed laces will help keep them from being snagged.
  2. Yeah very strange. Not what I was expecting. Holes aren’t warped but I would definitely have to drill to mount 272 holders.
  3. I just pulled a set of ccm Speedblade + 4.0 holders (271) from a pair of size 8 70ks and was going to mount a pair of 272 edge with the understanding that the holes would line up or be real close. Not the case, none of the holes lined up. Instead of drilling I grabbed a set of 280s to check and to my surprise all holes matched perfectly. So I went with the 280s. Question is, Is this widely known or is this a one off? I did a quick search and didn’t find anything specific. I’ve never worn CCM but found these in my size for $15. One boot was missing a runner. Both holders are marked 271.
  4. Similar to Bauer. 8.5 Marsblade boot was close to a Bauer 8.5 supreme. I ended up going to a 9 for a little extra room
  5. The repair (pics) I shared are only temporary, to keep the holes from enlarging. I only coach in these skates so the force on the boot is far less then playing. Blademaster will sell to US buyers through their New England supplier. I have had trouble in the past ordering even after setting my location to “USA”. For whatever reason I can only order from blademaster after setting to their USA site if I am not on WiFi. I have to use cell signal, I live in California. Video link attached explains eyelet size 63 and 64.
  6. I have done eyelets at home on my skates and my sons. I have a riveter but I don’t have the eyelet attachments. I got a cheap hand held press (looks like pliers) on Amazon for $10 and some 1/4 #8-12 barrel eyelets and washers. Works ok, not as clean as what an actual rivet press and eyelet attachment would do but keeps the holes in the boots from ripping out. The hand tool is pretty cheap and is now completely bent from use but it served its purpose. If someone was paying me to repair their skates I would definitely get the attachments and do it right.
  7. The liners are marked left and right, are the outer shells marked? very cool shins either way
  8. Definitely look like 5070/6070. Not sure about the double knee wings though. I have a pair of 6070. In that condition I would guess $200+
  9. I did this with a set of powerfly holders. I used a dremel and widened out the channel. Turned out great no issues.
  10. Where did they break? My son has used the PS1 shaft and blades, composite and outdoor. The composite blades were nice and light the outdoor blades were heavy but that was expected. I was impressed at how light the shaft was at 75 flex. he’s only using them for roller but I’m curious how they would hold up on ice. Im interested in trying some of the others especially for the price.
  11. So the cut outs I’m referring to are at the heel and forefoot. Same as the picture of the hyperlites you shared. The outsole hasn’t been solid in any of the pro stock Bauer or CCMs I’ve seen lately (vapors, nexus, ribcors), they all have the cut outs. I haven’t seen a pair of the machs so I can’t comment on those. Attached is a pic of a pair of converted 2s Pros that a player brought me to have rivets put in. Cuts outs in the heel and forefoot are visible. Also added is a pic of Pro Stock Hyperlites.
  12. The last several pairs of vapors and supremes I’ve converted had the cut out at the heel and forefoot and mounting wasn’t a problem. I have a big player still using his vapors (with cutouts) almost 3 years later with R1s and another on 2s Pros, also with cutouts, on the kryptonium chassis. but I understand, skates are expensive and not something to take chances with.
  13. What is the heel of the hyperlite made of that would keep it from being used to mount a roller chassis but allows an ice holder? there are players around here (California) that have converted hyperlites with the yellow outsole and don’t seem to have a problem.
  14. Both chassis's will be damaged if they take a direct hit with a hard shot. We have several pairs of both the R1 and O1. Marsblade has fantastic customer service. We had a cracked lower on a pair of O1s and a cracked upper and lower on the R1s (all different skates at different times). Marsblade sent us replacement parts with expedited shipping to keep us skating. We have had the R1s since they first came out and have seen significantly more action in competition and the O1s since 2017 or 2018
