Guy or Lad ask for skate advice and it turns into an E9/Fed discussion. Kleen n Hard out of Worcester does a good job with sizing and getting you *****d appropriately.
You sir, are a tool. You need to buy yourself some skates as you probably never played the game before. FED/E9 makes no difference in a couple years. You will see. Now get back in your Subaru and drive away.
And get a Jofa helmet while you’re at it.
Second Cookes Skate in Wilmington.
Put 2 boys through top youth and juniors and neither ever got new skates until they were in juniors. Find a place with perfectly fine newer used skates that some rich kid just got rid of. Just like cars, saves a ton of $.
This is the best idea on this thread. Any recs on places to go?
