    That's exactly the problem one of my friends is having now, I think he has indoor wheels or just super soft wheels and they're wearing down very quickly.

    Man another thing I'm not sure about are 1-piece sticks. I don't want to be playing street and grind down the blade and then wind up having to buy a whole new stick. Any recommendations? I just don't want to be spending cash on sticks over and over...

    I think GEAR is now owned by Hockey Giant.

    if youre playing outdoor school yard hockey then definately get a 2 piece, it doesnt have to be a gnarly composite one, the blade will wear down quick and youll be glad you can just pop the old one out and get a 10-15 $ one, there are also plastic ones that last quite a bit longer that arnt bad for outdoor hockey.

    yeah definitely no on the 1 piece outside. a 2 piece with a tapered blade will be just as good as a 1 piece except you can replace the blade when it breaks/wears down. i wouldn't waste my money on a composite blade outside though. only if you're playing indoor in a league or on ice would i spend good money on a nice blade. if you're just practicing and messing around outside, you can pick up some cheapy blades for around 10 bucks.

    edit: you might want to look into a standard shaft though. it's easier to find the cheapy blades for standard shafts. most tapered blades i see are pretty high end and not many wood/abs for outdoor use.

    Yeah, listen to those guys about the sticks. You don't want to use some $200+ Warrior stick on the street. I've always used ice hockey blades on the street and they do wear out quick, but it's just my preference. There are some decent blades out there that are made for the abuse of asphalt though. There's still some Koho ones out there that'll do the trick. Just look for crossover blades.

    You guys have any advice for gloves? I've got a mark running up my right hand from when I shoot and it's not pretty. Any particular way the gloves should rest on my hand or fit?

    Just make sure the skate are comfortable, if they hurt your feet it wont really matter how long they last...

    I'm not sure if you've been to this site yet but they've got a nice section on sizing for all sorts of equipment.
