My goaltender won't play without Tydan Blades. 100% gamechanger.
I only had a chance to use them twice before yet another lockdown ended the season. But I did notice a difference. Foot fatigue was greatly reduced during the game which is one of my biggest issues. The 3\4" hollow is not for me, I'll be getting them sharper. I'm impressed overall, and have recommended it to other goalies I play with.
Very smooth and consistent feel on the ice with these. The profile is different and takes a while to getting used to yet it feels like what a goalie profile should feel like.
did not think that blade profile would change my game this much. Had a radical departure not only with the profile but also radius. always liked the tight feeling of a 7/16. went all the way out to a 3/4 on Tydan recommendation. Amazing. used to have hip and knee pain. no more. ready to go in hours not in days. not walking around like an old man. would have paid far more for this had i known the change it would mean.
I replaced the 3 mm wide stock blades in my bauer x900 goalie skates with the MobilEDGE Diamond 4MM Goalie Blades with the Spry J profile. I have played 5 x so far with the Tydan blades and found out the following : 1) I find that I have better side to side pushes while standing up. I have always struggled with butterfly pushes in the past and still do but with the new blades I am making a bit of progress. 2) I find with the 4 mm blades i feel "set" quicker while following the puck movement and trying to stay square to the shooter. 3) I have no real bad nicks in the blades so far from hitting the posts and pushing off the posts . So far I am happy with the purchase. Also the shipping was super fast , 2 days from the order to getting the blades in my mail box . ( Hamilton Ont to Owen Sound Ont.)
They help Ryan to increase his acceleration and speed. Also very smooth in pivots and back skating playing D..
These blades are the ultimate performance for what I was looking for. Only got to use them for 3 games due to the fact I broke my ankle on a ruff landing. But A+++ on rating for sure.
Having the blade profiled has definitely helped with my sons pushes
Took the MyEDGE Assessment and was recommended the custom SPRY J profile. This is my first time with profiles blades on my goal skates and couldn't be happier with the results. MY mobility from 'set' position has been enhanced by allowing me to engage my initial movement sooner and quicker. Thanks again and I will be in conyact to have my back-up blades profiled as well.
I skated in full goalie gear with the new blades, .( no games or practices yet ) The best thing is that Joel was able to help me figure out what works best for me personally.And the " Spry J "profile is just right for me.( I am a 62 year old Rec. Goalie )
Customer service was excellent, very fast production and shipping. Love my new Tydan’s and noticed a difference immediately. As someone who is new to using a blade with a profile it was great to get recommendations from them.

Love the blades and the personal profile, the guys were really helpful and made it a breeze to get the blades. I had some issues with the blade fitting into my skates but the staff was really helpful and fixed up the issue real quick! I will be a returning customer for sure!
These are great set of blades. Only problem I am having is the blades move in the holders and squeak.
Great blades. Daughter loves them 👍🏒
Provided easy shipping from and to my door and they called to verify my order. I haven't tested this pair of blades yet, but the other pair I originally ordered from the website (Tydan carbon blades) are amazing. The new profile feels infinitely better than the original blades. They also hold their edge for at least twice as long as the old steel I used to use. This is the reason I haven't even installed the sharper pair...no need yet. The shipping and sharpening costs are also worth it for the accuracy of the profiling/sharpening; they aren't going to grind your blades down making them last longer while holding their profile. Very happy with the product and service.
Noticed a huge improvement in glide and edge control, took a few skates to get use to the new cag1 profile. They look way better then the picture dark colour with some shine to it. These sit in the ccm holder very well , they were a little thought to get in first.
Overall great value and best improvement for an equipment upgrade. Well worth it.
I spoke to Joel about profiles. I’ve never played or skated on a profiled blade before. I ordered the black steel and had my guy profile and sharped them to Joel’s recommended profile and hollow which was Cagone 30/60 and a 3/4 hollow. After a few skates to get used to them it is definitely a game changer. Finally feel more balanced and overall performance has improved. The DLC coated runners are great as well. The glide is excellent and so far the edges are maintaining their edge as well. Overall very happy about the service, quick shipping and I am probably going to stick with Tydan as a loyal user due to service and they way they treat their customers. Couldn’t ask for better.
In a direct comparison of Tydan steel vs. Bauer LS5 both my kids hands down prefer Tydan. They play Tier 1 and Juniors and spend a substantial amount of time on the ice. Tydan holds an edge longer, “nick up” less, and reportedly feel firmer and faster on ice. I have had both types of blades sharpened the same amount of times over the course of 2 seasons and the Tydans are simply better, no doubt.
Seeing as my son is only 10 asking him to write this would not be ideal.
I had done some research on replacement blades for my son's skates as he likes them very sharp. I contacted Tydan and they suggested the hallow and the profile. I have to say from the moment my kid took 6 strides I could see a difference in the glide and his edges.
He came off the ice and said. "yup these are really good"
I'm happy to say that he has been on the ice for well into 11 hours and I still haven't sharpened them.
I would recommend anyone looking for replacement blades or a upgrade to the stock steel these are great!
I just got my blades and they look awesome! Amazing customer service. I used the chat method and got all the info I needed! They really went above and beyond!
We ordered a set of DiamondEdge Goalie blades the week before Christmas. The company was able to make them (including engraving) and ship them to California with several days left before the holiday. The communication from Tydan was excellent and the follow up on our order was absolutely first rate. The only thing that was better was the blades themselves. They are just remarkable. My first experience buying Tydan blades won't be my last, and Tydan is really doing everything right from start to finish. I can't say enough good things about the company or their products.
My son has skated on Tydan blades for the past two years. A couple of weeks ago one of the tabs broke on the blade and he had to use Bauer blades while we waited for the new Tydan blades. He said there was a noticeable difference in the edges and sharpening. He was so happy when his née blades came!
