Easton Ice Boot With Mission Chassis

I'm thinking about getting a Mission aluminum alloy Vanguard chassis set (http://www.hockeymonkey.com/mission-...assis-set.html) for my Easton S15 ice hockey skates. I was curious if anyone has done something similar, would suggest something else, knows these two won't work, or anything else along those lines.

Thanks

It will work just fine. I did it to my synergy 1300c and most recently to my old pair of one95s

Thanks for the responses. I'm really excited about getting this done, especially since I've been skating in Missions which are from the 90's for what seems like forever.

Well, I kind of changed it up. Decided to keep my Easton S15's for ice, which are a more beat up, and put a chassis on my Vapor XXXX's. I'm happy with the finished product and my league starts next week, can't wait to try them out.

I hope it works out for you. I put a Mission chassis on some Easton ice skates, and the rivets came out pretty quickly. I just had them repaired, so we'll see if they stand up to abuse this time, but I'm skeptical.

Did you get it done at a hockey shop? When I took my Easton's in the guy said they looked pretty beat up and he could put them on, but he wouldn't suggest it. That's when I used my Vapor XXXX's instead. Anyways, hope you have better look this time around. I use mine for the first time tomorrow, so I'll see how they are.

Let us know how you like em!

For anyone else considering this, my bro had some Sprungs put on some old Tacks, and he loves em. Ice boots tend to be a bit stiffer. The only prob is some ice skates have a cloth covering on the toe cap and soft leather that doesn't take the abuse of a roller surface as well. I rock a 72/80 HiLo and personally the forward pitch is a little too steep for me. There are a lot of choices for skate frames, this article explains what some of the differences are.

As far as mounting goes, you can do it yourself, but shops usually charge around $30 which is worth it in my opinion. I have an extra set of size L Mission 72/80 for a size 10-12 skate just collecting dust. Do you guys know if there's a gear swap I can list them in? Not really trying to make money, just hoping to find someone who can put em to good use.
