    What's the most durable type of street hockey blades that also offers performance. Not looking to spend too much. Any ideas?

    I'm assuming you're talking skates here...Mission, Tour, etc all make affordable skates as well as the high-end stuff. The key is the wheels.

    It's pretty subjective as to which is best for street, depends on exactly what you're looking for. How much performance and durability for starters. IMO Graphite blades offer a good middle ground between performance and durability. But that's just my own personal opinion, I'm sure someone disagrees with me and prefers to use something else. You're best bet is to experiment with a few different kinds.

    That Easton ABS that VulgarTurtle posted is probably the easiest to find. I have the ABS blade Easton had out before that one and it held up pretty well on rough concrete under moderate use. I got probably a year and a half total time out of it, but take out Winter and early Spring/late Fall and it's like 8 months of use. I plan on picking up one of those blades myself sometime this month. Bauer also has an ABS blade, but it has a wood core. The Easton is a solid ABS core.

    I've been playing inline hockey (outdoors/organized & for fun) for 15 years and the best blade I have ever used is the Koho Crossover. I have NEVER broken one, they are extremely durable, and you can fire some pretty sick shots with it. I've used all my crossover baldes until they were too worn down to be effective (which takes a while). they are around 27 bucks per blade, all the major hockey distributors carry them (although right now almost every place i've looked is sold out.

    All the reviews say that they don't last long one says he went through 2 in 2 months. I spent less on my KOho with the abs blade and it has lasted 3 months with serious abuse has held up to plenty on slapshots on hard concrete if I had to make a recommendation I would go with something like these.
