Is a Sparx Sharpener worth it? You’ll be able to save a bit on the wheel by doing less passes, it’s when skates come in with a bad edge that you have to do more passes (and thus, burn out your wheel faster). Honestly, the Sparx sharpener has been a game changer for my goalie skate sharpening. This sharpener is worth every penny.
Where is Sparx Hockey located? Founded in 2013, Sparx Hockey is located just outside of Boston in Acton, Massachusetts. Sparx Hockey is a developer and manufacturer of skate sharpening equipment and related accessories for ice hockey, figure skating and sled hockey.
How long does a Sparx ring last? A Grinding Ring (Radius Ring or FIRE Ring) will last for 320 cycles. If you’re freshening up your blades after every skate, you’ll get 50-60 sharpenings (or even more!) per ring and if you’re sharpening your skates after every 5-6 hours of ice time, you’ll get about 40 sharpenings.
