I am thinking of getting these as a starter boot of sorts until I can afford some really good ones. Since I am new (http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=616218) to playing ice, should I go ahead and grab these or stay away?
you should hold onto the skates even after you get newer / better skates. You never know when hell will freeze over Um I mean Georgia. you know Global warming and all.
Really if you ever get a chance to go up north to skate on a pond you will want to have something to skate with. As well I never where good skates to a public skate other than open shinny.
I like my 252s a good solid cheep skate.
Well, I blew it with the 252's. Those were on ebay, and I totally forgot about bidding before I left to hit the ice. More on that in the other thread
Speaking of pond, I would love to do that. Every year when Hockey Day in Canada comes on, they show some great ponds and makes me wanna freeze my southern rear off just to skate a few laps before frostbite takes over
