As some of you know, I’m a pretty active Ice Hockey player. While I haven’t played at a level many of the players I write about have played, it doesn’t mean I can’t try out the latest gear right?
One of the benefits of this blog and even Twitter, that I never anticipated – are the opportunities to test and review the latest and greatest hockey equipment for my audience.
A few weeks ago a new company called MLX Skates contacted me about testing out a new pair of their custom built composite ice skates for a review. As much as I have bragged about my custom tailored Graf skates that Joe Ferraro worked with me on – I liked what I saw on the MLX skates and agreed to a review.
I wanted to post a preview of sorts on the review as I wait for the skates to be delivered, this way everyone has the chance to read about what’s already been said about MLX.
Here is their YouTube introduction:
Several NHL players have already made the switch to MLX, including Evgeni Malkin and All-Star Defenseman Dustin Byfuglien to name a few. You can find out more about who uses the MLK Skates on their website.
