Heres the thing with looking at other peoples posts, skates, unlike more generalized equipment are more personal. Yeah I can get a rough Idea through someone elses build, but with the information I gave (height,weight,how I skate- and 4 potential skates) I can get a better idea of which will suit
Ive never really had a problem with Mission, Ive always like their product and while the break in period sucks, the afterproduct usually lasts pretty long and is durable.
these opinions are from my experience with roller hockey gear, and not ice, so I dont know how they stack up against say Bauer or RBK, both mainly ice hockey manufacturers.
