  1. Yellow Superfeet footbeds would help stabilize the heel and bring the toes back slightly. They come with a 60 day money back guarantee if they don't end up working for you.
  2. The amount of terrible advice I've heard in locker rooms is absurd. Once had a guy hone the sides of his skates for 20 minutes thinking that would sharpen his skates. I would've believed him if he was rubbing the stone on the bottom of the runners and moving his hands at 3000+rpm.
  3. Everything except for the annoying top flap. I've never tried on a shin pad as bow legged as the 20K.
  4. For outdoor skates I would rotate them as often as you have time for. Having the wheels out gives you a good opportunity to clean the chassis and bearings too. As for the rotation pattern, I do the 1 -> 2, 3 -> 4 on my Hi-Lo chassis like Vet88 has mentioned. I also like to swap wheels between both skates in future rotations.
  5. Quality floor paint isn't cheap and you'll have to buy at least a gallon. A coat of paint won't do anything to protect your stick blade.
  6. The red/silver Tri-flex was the first OPS I owned. Paint chipped like crazy and the blade was SUPER thick.
  7. Senior blades can fit intermediate shafts. Just depends on the make/model. As for OP, make sure you are heating it up enough. Are you using a heat gun?
  8. I disagree that Elite has the best laces. They are one of the worst IMO. The amount of wax they have is absurd. Most of it accumulates on the eyelets. Never bake a skate with Elite waxed laces unless you want it to melt all over your hands. Their laces are also very thin, which rolls more than other brands. I like that they have molded tips but that's about it.
  9. I've never found the need for the height comparator gauge. Prior to sharpening I'll check the skate blade with my Blademaster Pro Square. If they're not level I'll look for the position and size of the spark on the wheel. When I've made full contact with the blade to the wheel, I'll check the level again before making any height adjustments.
  10. If your son is LH, Hockey Monkey still has the HTX in his spec. At $60 a pop, that's hard to beat.
  11. $700 is the what a top level C/A costs nowadays, regardless of brand.
