I've recently made 'A' for Midget, I have never played rep hockey before, I am thinking of buying new skates. Last season I was playing house hockey with the CCM U+06's, i'm not sure if I maybe need to buy a better pair of skates, or if my old skates will last me another season. If I do need a new pair what price range will I be looking at? Or any skate recommendations?
If your current skates are working for you, why bother switching?
At least at first, you are going to be playing at a higher pace than you are used to. That will be a big adjustment. There is no sense throwing another complication by throwing on skates you aren't used to.
