Zuperior S 6'-12'-20' - yan

Recommended Posts

Steel - mission pitch
Hollow - 7/16"
About Me - I played pond hockey growing up in Canada and then played in a men's league for the past 10 years.   My straight line speed is pretty good.  I feel my edge work / hockey IQ / hands are holding me back.  Hopefully, with these profiles, I can gain some speed which in turn will give me more time and space to make better decisions on the ice.  I've been skating on stock mission pitch steel at 263mm which I believe has a 9' radius.  I would rate this control set as follows:
  • Acceleration: 3
  • Mobility: 3
  • Stability: 3
  • Speed: 3  
Zuperior S     6'-12'-20'
My normal 7/16 hollow was used and I found the same level of grip as my control set.  The sharpening lasted the usual 5 games for me before I felt there was not enough grip anymore.  It seems like a lot of steel was taken off for this profile because the front of the blade for Zuperior S is about 1mm lower than the other profiles I got.  However, I did not notice any change in pitch.
The profile felt more "rounded" than a single or double radius resulting in smoother weight shifting.  I'd say it's kind of like using a rockered blade like p92 vs a flat blade like pm9.  I rate this profile as follows:
  • Acceleration: 3
  • Mobility: 5
  • Stability: 4
  • Speed: 4
