What size blade for EDEA Ice Fly 260?
« on: October 26, 2017, 08:22:08 AM »
I just ordered a 9.75 for my Edea Ice fly 260 and I am worried its going to be a bit too long and hang over the back. Anyone wearing this boot and can tell me what size blade you are in? I know Edea recommends either a 9.5 or 9.75 but I haven't had great experience with their recommendations.
Thanks!

I don't have an answer to your specific question.  I order the boot first, make sure it fits, measure the actual length, and then order the blade.  It adds an extra week to the process, but worth it.

I just bought a new edea ice fly 270 boot and went with their 10" blade recommendation. It fits on the boot just fine.
When you receive the blade, line it up with the boot bottom, if it doesn't fit, return the blade and get a better size.

My daughter had 255s with a 9.75 blade.

I'm really late answering this but....

I have Ice Flies in size 260 and needed a 9.5" Ultima Legacy blade.

I just switched to the Chorus skate in 260 and have a 9.5" Coronation Ace blade.

Neither skate fit the recommended 9.75" size. I had to wait until my new skates came in before ordering the blade since the Edea recommendation isn't always accurate.
