Roller Hockey Skates Recommedations
I've been playing ice hockey for about 12-13 years now. I've played a little roller, but I've always sported the same skates: My 1990something Black Rollerblade Lightnings! I don't have laces on them or anything, but those badboys have always gotten the job done.
I think it's time for an upgrade (or U-P-G-R-A-Y-Y-D-E, for the Idiocracy fans). Any advice would be helpful. Here's my situation:
(1) I'm never going to be a full time rollerblader/roller hockey player. Ice is what I play, but I like playing a little roller with friends.
(2) I've played in one or two roller leagues, but again, nothing sustained.
(3) I doubt I'll be using it mainly on sport court. I'll most likely be using them on both cement and sport court, so I guess I'd be looking for a middle of the road wheel density.
(4) I don't need the most super duper skate out there. Just one that will get the job done and not suck. I currently wear the Rebok 9K Pump Skate (I hate them and wish I would have gone w/ Bauer Vapors). It was the top of the line skate when I bought it, but I'm not looking to buy top of the line model for roller hockey. If anything, I want to go to Hockey Monkey and pick up an out of date model that all the "cool kids" won't wear but are just as good and for half the price.
Thanks for any help in advance.
