Beginner Skates

I have played indoor roller for about 10 years and I'm about to make the jump to ice hockey. I was wondering what would be a good skate to buy as my first pair. Money is not really an issue but I'd rather not spend alot on a pair that wont make any difference to my horrendeous skating. Any responses are greatly appreciated

Go to the store and try on skates. Fit is the most important thing, and different brands and lines fit differently.

If you know your going to play ice regularly and you want a solid skate without the pain of the wallet.

I'd say go with the RBK 5k, It's a step down from the better RBK's but its a step above your average begginer skate. It has some good protection in the feet compared to the Bauers and CCM's imo. Best of both worlds. Price and Performance.. Just make sure they fit right and your comfortable in them.

I've got the CCM V08's with the Rocket Runner and im satisfied with them. they'll be a bit more expensive but i can honestly say i love them.
