What a difference a skate makes!
Managed to get hold of some NOS 2007 Reebok 5Ks Pump skates today for the huge sum of £65 to replace my CCM 92s. I jumped straight off the train when I got back to Nottingham, went around to the National Ice Centre, got them sharpened in the shop and had a rec skate.
Lighter, stiffer, more comfortable, I feel more in control and they fit my mangled right foot better. I'm also very impressed by the pump system for keeping my heel in place.
So, new pair of skates for what will only be my second scrimmage on Friday and eleventh time in total I've been skating (going to the public skate tomorrow will be my tenth time on the ice).
