    Question Where to buy

    Where is a good place to go for someone living in Burbank to go get a pair of skates fitted? Is Play it Again Sports OK (do they do heat molding?), or should I just suck it up and take the drive down to Jake's Custom Pro Shop, or some other place I don't know about?

    Thanks

    jakes sounds pretty legit, i've never been. i recently bought some graf's from hockeymonkey and wyatt (a manager there) helped me out. he was very knowledgable with just about every brand of skate, and what type of foot they fit. if you go, tell him beedee/bret sent ya!

    I've been to Hockey Giant more times than I can count, and Tron sounds legit like others have said. But Jake's beats all of them easily. The guy that helped me with my broken skate blade was awesome. He knew exactly how to sharpen my skates after the blade was replaced so that the shape of it was the same as the previous one. The guy did it in under 20 minutes. They were a little expensive, but the guy really knows his stuff.
