Figure Skating Blades
« on: February 15, 2011, 08:46:52 AM »
Just a spot to hang onto any Figure blades that are available for sale.

Note: these are blades designed for doing Figures, not for other purposes like freeskating or ice dancing.

eBay listing of brand-new Coronation Aces for only $175 + $15 shipping.  It's a good buy if the sizes are right.
