Packaged neatly away in its case and includes everything to get sharpening those blades! The AS 2001 AllPro has earned the reputation of a precision sharpening machine desired by many professional hockey teams and skaters around the world, along with elite pro shops and sport stores. This would be perfect for a high school or college team. You could even start your own sharpening business, this thing will last for many seasons to come as it’s built to be durable and precise, every time. The ProSharp AS 2001- Allpro can do both sharpening and profiling of the blade. You can do radius, double-radius or classic gliding surface profiling with the AS 2001. Blade profiling – what is it and why to do it! The blade profile determines the contact surface between the blade (steel) and the ice = ice contact. New blades have an approximate 6-11 foot radius rocker profile depending on the skate model and size. This correlates to 38-52mm of blade to ice contact which is not enough in the new 21st century ice hockey, where the most important asset is speed. Another limit is that the factory profile is intended to suit all players. But why not customize to achieve optimal advantage? In the same way a hockey player chooses their stick, gloves, helmet etc. They should also be able to try out skate blades and how it can effect on their game. More powerful strides and better glide. Higher speed, less fatigue, and improved two-way play. Better edge control, agility and balance. More flexible skating maneuvers and moves. Quicker turns and greater acceleration. More chances for break-aways. Improved confidence and skating enjoyment.
