New to inline..skate question.

Recommended Posts

new to the site and looking for some feedback on skates.  Primarily an ice hockey player but would like to use inline this spring and summer.

I have an old pair of Mission Proto VR skates that I never used due to the sizing being narrow.  Is it worth throwing the Hi-Lo Penetrator frame from that skate on a pair of my old ice skate boots or has technology changed enough I should get something newer?

Appreciate the info!

That chassis would be fine. I believe it’s an older 72-80 Hilo frame the newer Hilo runs 76-80 wheels, but the concept is essentially unchanged.

If you’re looking to replicate ice skating as much as possible and you have the cash look at the marsblade o1 or maybe sprungs if you can find a pair.

And either way make sure you get decent outdoor wheels (82-86a generally), like the Hilo clingers or Labeda asphalts.

It is an older 72-80 frame. Luckily I bought outdoor wheels at the time when I got these so they're already setup to go.

Marsblade really have me intrigued.  Worth the hype?  In a perfect world, I'd like to have a boot similar in fit to my 2S Pro.  Debating finding a 2017-2018 model and the Marsblade chassis has me questioning doing anything with the Mission skate. 

Right now its more for training than playing.
