The home baking and the flexible tendon guards are the things I am biggest on. The tendon guard idea just makes so much sense to me.

I had read a few things where people were worried about the weight of the skates - I've had Graf's, Nike's, and Flite's (small outfit in Ontario), and the MLX are much lighter (granted, also much newer). There not as light as the new CCM's and stuff, but not comparably heavier either.

The ability to shift the blade seems cool, but I don't really understand how to do it (couldn't find any guides). Otherwise they fit beautifully and I just hope they hold up fairly well (part are replaceable as well, which is cool).



- Well looking at about a year after you posted this I was wondering if you could give us some insight on how they have held up? Also wondering how they performed on the side of protection over the last year(not only puck protection but also foot/ankle-any bruising,blisters,arch problems)
