Synthetic Ice and Agility Blades

Hey guys:

I do a big outdoor rink in the winter for my kids (peewee twins and first year mite).

Last spring/summer I did a 10x14 dryland shooting tile area on our paver patio. Kids used it a ton and really improved stick handling and shooting.

Well, I'm gonna do it with synthetic ice this year. I know it's not the same as regular ice and not meant to replace. This is IN ADDITION TO not instead of.

So, I'd down to either D1 ice sheets or the Scan Ice 'tiles'. I have 8 of those Scan Ice tiles to play and can't really tell the skatability. What I like is that they are small panels (15x13) and easily moved/reconfigured/etc.

Also, thinking about 'agility blades'. Apparently they are awesome for synthetic ice. I'd just replace the Tuuks/blades on their beat around skates. Google them - some cool youtube videos.

Share any opinions on the specific above products if you have them.
