The Pro Shop / Re: What size blade for EDEA Ice Fly 260?
« Last post by FigureSpins on February 21, 2018, 09:25:40 PM »
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.

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?

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.

Good for you!  Glad to see you back. 

My Jackson Classiques turned out to be way too big, and after struggling with them for a while (three layers of insoles, etc.) I finally moved up to Jackson Elles (stock Mirage blade) about three years ago.  And from an 8C to a 7B, which my skate tech (not the one who sold them to me) still thinks might be a bit big.

Hey guys, I wanted to bring this thread back since it did so well the first time. Just to see what ya'll are skating on now. Did you guys love the equipment you were skating on four years ago, so you did a repeat? Or did you hate your equipment and upgraded to something different that better suited you? As I said before I'm super nosey so I'm just dieing to know. Me and my boyfriend took a break for about year or so and we've both put in an order for Jackson elite boots. My elites will be paired with Eclipse infinity blades and my boyfriend's elites will be paired with Apex Supreme. Happy skating ya'll!
