ALSO, should I buy new skates? I have a pair of Sherwood 6000's that you can't even buy anymore...
I have the money to go and buy BRAND NEW top of the line skates. But should I if I'm just a beginner?
I'd go lower end, ie less than $200, as high end skates are wayyy to stiff for beginners usually. After a season or so, maybe go higher, but that's personal preference then...
