Blade Hockey Laces and Wax Review
Blade Hockey recently launched two new products in its already impressive arsenal of ball handling and training equipment. The two new products, Blade Laces and Blade Wax, are quite explicit elements but quite necessary in our sport. We had the chance to receive a set of lace and wax demos from our friends at Blade Hockey, and my thoughts on each of them are compiled below.
Wax Blade is sold in a small tin container and has a premium tropical fragrance. The smell is nice and is not too powerful. Each container comes with 80 grams of wax made in the United States. This is how Blade Hockey produces its wax:
We cook our wax on wood stoves that produce the highest quality wax on the market. This wax is designed to increase control of your washer and prevent ice and snow buildup on your blade.
Once applied to your band, Blade Wax works exactly as advertised on the ice. The application of wax to my blade helped to repel any accumulation of snow and ice during the first two periods of a match. In the final stages of the third period, with much more snow on the ice, a little accumulation was inevitable. Overall, blade wax did what I needed.
If I could change one thing about wax, I would change the container. I used wax in the past, in a deodorant container, and for me, this makes application much easier. On the other hand, I also used wax that came only in plastic, so having a nice resealable tin container is really great.
BladeHockeyCo.com . The laces are only $ 5.99 per pair, regardless of size. The wax is also available for only $ 5.99 for each box.
