  1. I am kinda new to hockey and have been skating on my tacks 9060 skates for a while now. I use them between 3-5 times a week. I got the sb black steel, and the steel shows some type of wear. Can someone see if they are ruined? Do you recommend putting in another (type of) steel?http://
  2. For those of you who have done experimenting using different hollows without much change in body weight: how much of an impact have you found in the relationship between your body weight and the hollow selected? There is the oft-heard axiom that the heavier players should consider a shallower hollow, but I wonder to what extent. Is a solid skater at 165lbs really going to be floundering around if a 3/4" or 1" hollow is used instead of a 1/2"? Thank you, Seth
  3. I am in the market to purchase a new sharpening skate holder, and I have always used the cam lever style holders. From what I can find online, it looks like the newer tri-lie holders are around $200 more expensive than the older lever style. My questions are: 1) Are the tri-lie holders are worth the extra money? (e.g. What is gained other than the ability for flat bottom sharpening?) 2) If I only perform ROH sharpening, does the third dimension just complicate the process of getting level edges? (Does the third dimension even get used with ROH?) 3) If I make the investment in a new holder, is there a style that fits more types of skates than another and might be the preferred overall purchase? (e.g. Does a goalie specific holder work just as well on a player skate, where as a general holder may not work as well with goalie skates?) Thanks for any insight!
  4. I thought ide start a thread about the new Sharpening and Profiling process from Elite Sharpening Systems. The Habs have been using this system since the beginning of the season. Many other teams are also starting to understand the benefits.... Both the Profiling machine and Sharpening machine have Unequaled precision and use a very unique process!!!! Take a look at this segment (in french) showing the habs EQM manager using the machine: http://www.tvasports.ca/2017/02/13/une-question-de-millimetres Here is the rough translation: Hockey is often said to be a matter of centimeters. However, in some cases it is even a matter of millimeters. Our journalist, Jean-Philippe Bertrand, presented us with a company from our home, whose equipment is in the locker room of the Canadiens. (See video above) The expertise of Aiguisage Élite (Elite Sharpening), based in Beloeil, is also the envy of several National Hockey League teams. "Running in water to the knees is a lot more demanding than running in water up to the ankles," said founding president Denis Proulx. "It's the same thing in hockey. A blade that is too sharp surcharges the ankles, knees and hips. " That's why we developed a machine that sharpens the skates with surgical precision. "The precision is such that it is like taking the size of a hair, then divide it by three and then by two," he added. In the world of professional sport, a hair can make the difference between victory and defeat. That's why we make sure that the players of the Tricolore/Habs evolve in ideal conditions of performance. "It takes three things to sharpen a blade perfectly. The self-centering, a wheel that does not deform and controlled continuous pressure of the wheel" he concluded with his concern for legendary detail. And in addition to sharpening, this South Shore company offers the profiling service for a custom blade with unequaled precision. Just like the Pros!
  5. I am relatively new to hockey and have been sharpening my kid's skates (and her teammates) for about a year. I have had very good results and feedback. But yesterday I got a pair of CCMs and I noticed that I was having trouble sharpening them. I took a close look at the runners and the thickness of the runners tapers from the usual .115" near the plastic holder to .100" or so at the edge that contacts the ice. You can actually see the falloff of the thickness of the metal as it nears the ice contact edge by holding a starrett straight edge to the face of the runner. I have not seen this on any other runners. The dad who gave me the skates said the CCM runners were brand new. So my question is whether this is an intentional part of the design or a manufacturing defect or something that happened on first sharpening when they were purchased? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
