I don't know how he was using that for street hockey. Eventually all of the fiberglass on the bottom will chip away leaving you with the wood core and we all know how wood reacts to being dragged around asphalt when it comes to street hockey. It'd be fine for ice because the fiberglass would keep water from getting into the wood core.

ABS core blades are ideal for street hockey not only for its price point but because it doesn't chip, it gradually wears down. It might not be the lightest plastic but unless you have the ability to manufacture a hockey blade with high performance plastics it's your only option.
