"I have a new steel that’s called Flare Skate Blade, it’s a thicker steel. It gives me an option to glide more, but be sharper when I turn. I get it [sharpened] at an inch and a half, it’s a big difference. I’ve noticed you need a glide; I used to play with no glide and my legs would kill me. I changed [to Flare Skate Blade] and really notice it".
"I believe that the Flare Blades provide me with better balance, and sharper and quicker turns. These blades are the perfect blades for me".
"I feel like I'm getting more speed when I crossover. I really like the glide too, it feels like I can turn way faster than any other blade I've used. I like how they pound in the ice when I take my stride".
"These blades are great for turning and the glide is outstanding. I think these blades are a good choice for any hockey player".
"I think the Flare Blades are awesome, they’re much different than a standard blade. You have better turning and your edges feel great. I think these blades are especially good for defencemen, plus I find I get more speed when I’m crossing over. I enjoy these blades a lot".
"I’ve noticed my strides being quicker, not having to transfer my weight to my inside edge like on normal blades. They are also wider which makes me feel more stable on the ice".
"I really like the blades, they give me the ability to cut tighter and come out of turns much faster".
"Switching to Flare Skate Blades was one of the best decisions I've made with my skates, using the thicker blade really improves my edge work and my glide speed. After getting used to the blade, my skating got a lot better and I'm a lot more confident in my edge work".
"Flare Skate Blades are some of the best I have ever tried, and have made vast improvements to my skating. My turns feel tighter and smoother than ever before. If you have not already given them a shot I highly recommend them"!
"These blades are flat out faster than normal blades. They are a pleasure to use. They took me a little bit to get used to, but now that I am and see the difference in turning, I love them".
“I love the blades; at first it took a little getting used to but after a couple skates I could really feel the difference in my turns. I feel way faster and smoother".
"I love Flare blades because the wider blades make tighter turns, and I feel like I can escape pressure much more efficiently compared to any other blades. I feel like I can glide easier and have more stability on my skates. I'm a proud Flare Athlete".
"My glide has improved significantly and I feel quite a bit faster out there. Also getting from point A to point B in a small distance, I feel like I get a faster pop off the start".
"I really like the blades, I feel much more comfortable on them then any other blade. It is way easier to enter turns and gain speed".
"I’ve noticed that my glide is faster and I have much more control. Every hockey player is always trying to be one step ahead of everyone else and now that I am using Flare Blades, I feel like I'm one step ahead".
"Flare Skate Blades help me turn away from pressure, in the corners especially! They also allow me to reach maximum speed in only a few strides".
I prefer Flare Blades because I can turn tighter, faster, and am able to accelerate out of turns smoother. They are great in tight situations, but also preform great in open ice. Overall a great choice.
"Flare Blades have really helped my skating and my ability to make tight turns and be more explosive on the ice. I feel more comfortable on my edges and this has allowed me to create more opportunities for myself offensively"!
"I love the feel of the blades, I really notice them in the corners and with tight turns as well as my first few quick strides. Very happy I made the switch over to Flare Skate Blades".
"I love the Flare Blades. Being a bigger guy, sometimes it's hard when you’re in the corners trying to turn tight but the Flare blades help me so I can efficiently turn in and out of corners. They help me feel stronger on my skates and I love how easy it is to glide".
"They feel great! The glide on them is amazing. I feel like my top speed has increased a bit as well. Awesome for turning too. Just feels more sturdy because of the wider blade also"
"The Flare Blades have really helped my stride, especially when coming out of turns. I feel my first three strides generate more speed than with my previous blades. Switching to Flare Blades was a great decision".
"The thing that I instantly noticed when using Flare Blades is the turning ability in tight areas and flying out of the corners. There are many advantages to using Flare Blades".
"I love the blades and I think for me I notice that each stride I have more power. Also, when I turn I feel like I hold turns longer and I'm much stronger on my edges".
