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.)
