So I have some 652 tacks I bought about 18 years ago or so. They have been there since the high school days, and I still play with them in the adult leagues. You know how old they are becuase they have the old Rebook "pump" from the 90's. The problem: the blade holders (white part) has started to crack on both skates. Maybe its the age of the skates, or maybe it's me getting fat. But, we will keep that conversation for another time. The question: I was told by the local hockey store that they could basicly attach a new blade holder and blade to the skates. They would have to drill some new holes and what not. The blades come from a brand new CCM model. Has anyone ever had this kind of work done on their skates? How did they ride afterwards? I think my only other option is to track down some old used blade holders and blades- but that will prove time consuming, and more costly even. I am NOT considering new skates becuase I love my old boots so much. THey are like riding on clouds. That, and why spend the cash when you don't have to... Thanks!
