Best Ice Hockey Skates

Well, I've decided to write about something different. I've written about the best hockey skates. Now it's time to find out just what exactly are the best ice hockey skates. I've never played ice hockey. I've played roller hockey, but never actually played the sport on ice. I have however, ice skated. I've also skated on inline skates as well. I've gone through my fair share of equipment in my time playing hockey. So, I know a little bit about doing both. Skating that is.

My first pair of ice skates were Bauers. These weren't the normal hockey skates though. They were almost covered in a plasitc shell. The entire boot was. This is different than normal hockey skates, which are usually made of leather. These skates were good, but they almost seemed like toys. I later upgraded to a pair of leather Bauers. I'm not sure what version they were called, but they were much better. I guess, I'm going to have to say that Bauer rules both the inline hockey world and the ice hockey world when it comes to skates.

Best Hockey Equipment Posts Have Been Scarce

Why haven't there been any posts for information regarding the best hockey equipment? Well, for one people have been researching my hockey blog and copying my posts. I noticed certain individuals scouting it for awhile now. So, I've moved on to better projects that will basically make this little sports information blog look like nothing. This new project will be the total hockey experience. The people doing the research to compete with me will have no chance of doing so. Will I still post here? Yes, I'll post on hockey stuff from time to time and if anyone has questions, I will answer them. I think it's a bunch of BS that I can't post any information or experiences I have regarding certain companies equipment such as Bauer, CCM, Mission, Reebok, Nike, or Cooper without that info being stolen just so some other site can compete to sell crap. Its garbage man, those hockey stores that research my blog probably will go crazy trying to compete with the new thing I have in store.

So yeah, my new project will be the total of hockey stuff that I know. Kinda like this one is, except on steroids. More information on hockey gear and other stuff. I'm going to cover all aspects of the sport. From skates in inline hockey, to the gear used in ice hockey. All kinds of equipment will be covered. It'll be awsome. I won't even have to mention anything about it here. People will find this on their own. It's going to be totally awsome. I love hockey too much to give up this type of stuff. I'll continue to give out information that I have regarding my past experience playing the sport, so you don't have to worry about that. The total amount of effort I put into this blog can be seen by just reading through my past updates. I love the sport as you can see.

I'm not going to mention any more brands and types of equipment on this blog for the time being. Because when I do, this stuff that I write ends up being used by others to sell hockey equipment from 'certain' other online hockey stores. They probably think that I don't know what they are doing, but I do. I have known for awhile now. I've been too busy working on something else that is more worth my time. So they can go after and think stealing information from this little blog all they want will help their companies. It won't. Well, that's it for now, I'll be talking about hockey equipment some more in the future.

Koho Hockey Blades Were Great

Koho blades, what are they? They used to be a brand of hockey stick blades. They also sold actual whole sticks, but the blades were more popular because they could be interchanged with aluminum sticks.

I know that I've mentioned this before, I think. When I played hockey growing up, I almost always exclusively preferred composite type sticks. I'll talk more about Koho blades in a second, but the reason I liked composite sticks is that they were two piece. Which means, if the blade broke, I could just buy another one. I wouldn't have to replace the whole hockey stick. I didn't like all the one piece wooden sticks, because they felt to heavy. I was a speedy player and needed something light that I could stick handle with quickly.

Now the whole Koho blade comes in because the store down the street from me always had them in stock. In fact, they might've been overstocked on them. Koho's brand also sold for much cheaper than some other brands. For example, I remember Easton blades being $5-10 more. Now, this could just be fuzzy memory, but I think once in awhile those prices would come down on the Easton ones and I would get them occasionally. I liked Easton, but they weren't as readily available as Koho.

One thing about these blades is that they lasted a long time. They were very thick and wouldn't wear down as quick as some other hockey stick blades out there. There were also some hockey player endorsed blades that Koho had. The name was usually written in black on the top. The most easy to find type of blade was their Big Curve version. I was always buying those. I will admit that it was difficult stick handling with a brand new blade from Koho because they were very thick blades, but after awhile, they were awsome.
