How does one get more information about what blades have what sort of rocker shape? I am pretty sure that my problem with my MK dance has more to do with where the rocker sits under my foot than anything else - I wish Wilson made a decent dance blade!!!!!
:angel Are your MK Dance 9-3/4"? How worn down, and how much do you want for them? I love MK Dance. :angel
You can measure blades by comparing tracings in the store, or using a rocker gauge like the one from iceskateology.com. I don't think MK/Wilson scale the spin rocker shape and length with the overall blade length, but you might check. If the pro has several pair, look at the left and right blades of each - one pair might please you better - they vary a lot.
Move the mounting point to change where the rocker sits under your foot. Obviously, that changes the toe pick and tail end positions too. The tail end can be ground off, or you can buy a shorter or longer blade. If the blade overhangs the boot so much it interferes with foot work, grind off the edge of the mounting plate.
You can reshape the spin rocker area and positioning, but it wastes metal, so consider what you want before you start. Little changes in the spin rocker make huge differences. Change .002 - .003 inches at a time.
If you can figure out all those crazy test rules, this should be simple!
Celebrate becoming a Gold test judge (amazing!) by buying and trying every type of Dance blade.
