The Pro Shop / Re: What size blade for EDEA Ice Fly 260?
« Last post by tstop4me on Today at 10:36:05 PM »
I have never heard that before.  It would vary based on the skate model because some have soles that extend past the upper, others are smaller than the upper.  How would they mount the blade under your foot properly?
I agree, that blade-sizing procedure sounds bizarre.  Also, different boots have different heel pitches:  for the same size foot, the projected length onto the sole varies with heel pitch.

I have the Motion 225s and they are holding up very well, and are very comfortable.  I weigh about 175 and skate almost every day.

The last time I had to buy blades, the fitter told me the measurement of the blade should be the length of hour foot when measured with nothing on. My foot’s about 9 3/4, so I switched to the 9.75 (Coronation Ace) from 10.25 and it changed my life.
I have the Chorus 255 and it fits fine.

The Pro Shop / Edea Overture vs Chorus (or other recommendations)
« Last post by Nikita on Today at 07:21:00 PM »
I’ve never tried on Edeas so I don’t know what the fit will be like. Looks like I also would have to order them in since there isn’t a shop near me with Edeas in stock. I’m a beginner (pre-alpha until the end of March), but a 4’11, 98 lb adult female. Since I’m only able to make it to the rink about 2.5 hours per week, I don’t see myself wearing them out that quickly. Based on experience, would you recommend the Overture or Chorus? Or should I go with another brand of boots entirely?

And does anyone here have blade preferences when it comes to either of those boots?

Still in my full custom Harlicks with Pros.  I can't believe it but another 6 months they may need to be replaced. I thought these would be my lifetime boots.

Still in my Riedell Gold Stars and Coronation Aces after 11 years. They are comfortably broken in and suitable for someone doing just singles, but the insides are showing advanced signs of age.
