Alright, total noob question here so bear with me.
I'm just getting in to ice hockey so I picked up some skates (rental footwear bothers me), but I'm waffling between two pairs, and wanted to get y'all's advice.
One is a pair of Easton Synergy EQ1s which I've read are an entry level kind of skate. They're in really good shape (used a couple of times at most), fit well, and decently priced
The other is a pair of CCM Tacks (I don't know clue which model, I'm going off what it said on the boot), that fit the same or slightly better than the Eastons, and were priced quite low, but were in very used shape The boot was in decent shape, but the blade (runner?) was ground down almost to the holder at the toe and heel. A quick phone search didn't pull up any replacement blades for these (unless I was searching the wrong thing), so I got the Eastons, but I'm wondering if I should have gone with the CCMs. I don't know, thoughts?
