Do you know how many blades, skates, holders, etc. pros go through in one season alone?
I don't compare myself to the pros, because it just doesn't make any sense.
yes some are, but not every guy. Also, not the blade holders. There are a lot of guys who change the blades on their skates from what they come with to a holder they like more. Usually that's a Tuuk blade.
That's Ovechkin wearing a pair of CCM skates with a Bauer Tuuk Lightspeed holder. They will change the holder to what they like best, they'll just take off the logo if it doesn't match their skates.
And I'm pretty sure the only people using Tblades in the NHL are paid to do so, a few German guys use them (a german company makes them)
Your game may not be on the same level as a pro, but you can bet that they have a better sense of what equipment performs better then you do.
