Another angle on less expensive skates vs more expensive.

I have posted before about the difference of say a $65.00 skate vs a $150.00 skate. I have the $65.00 pair and have not been sure if it is worth the upgrade to a better pair or not. Now with some models discontinued some decent bargains are out there on the more expensive ones. Most people had said the biggest difference in the upgraded skate is the materials used, better support etc. I decided to let someone try out my pair who plays regularly. As soon as he got on them, he said they were so dull he would not try them. The problem I have is they were sharpened not that long ago and probably have five or less times skating on them. He said the sharpener makes a big difference. What I had thought of was is it possible that the blade on the $65.00 pair is cheaper and may dull faster then a better skate with a better blade and that could be affecting my performance.

Thanks.
