"For over twenty years I have been working hard to help kids become better skaters. I spend a lot of time on the ice. Like every other hockey player, I've experienced both good and bad skate sharpening jobs. The first time I tried the Sparx, I was amazed. " Greg Carter

"Now I sharpen all his skates at home within minutes. But best of all my son says he has never had a better sharpening."

Bill Calhoun

Parent, AZ Bobcats

"I purchased this machine hoping it would end my running to the pro shop for my son. He is on the ice 8-10 times a week. So we needed something to be easy. Now I sharpen all his skates at home within minutes. But best of all my son says he has never had a better sharpening. He never has to worry about not having sharp skates thanks to the Sparx machine. Now the team are all buy grinding rings so I can do all their skates. Even my pro shop owner is very impressed and likes the machine."

"The best investment in hockey I have made since buying skates!! Quick and Easy to use."

Jonah Cimolini

Head Instructor - Stars Hockey Development

"The best investment in hockey I have made since buying skates!! Quick and Easy to use. My 10 year old does his own skates now and we dont have to drive into the store and wait... I figure I have my cost down to $1.25 CDN per sharpen. Loving it!"

"The stakes were very high, and the Sparx edges were perfect! Best of all, I was able to set it up in my hotel room with no mess at all."

Colin Stuckless

Player, Parent, Coach

"After a first couple of perfect sharpening tests on my own skates and my two son's skates, I brought my Sparx on the road with me recently to a provincial high performance camp featuring the top 80 U14 and U15 players in Newfoundland. The stakes were very high, and the Sparx edges were perfect! Best of all, I was able to set it up in my hotel room with no mess at all. I was only able to share with a few close friends, as with just one partially used 1/2 grinding ring on hand I wasn't equipped to take care of everyone. Had I known in advance the trainers weren't bringing a sharpener onsite with them this year, I could have paid off a good portion of my machine in a single weekend. Maybe next year!"

"Before, we'd have 30-60 minutes wait times during tournaments. Now, there's no wait."

Peter Henderson

Former Boston Bruins Equipment Manager

"The absolute best thing I can say about this machine is I have NEVER had a bad sharpening."

Adam Migdal

Player

"Over my 20 years of playing hockey I've had enough bad sharpenings to know you don’t always get a good sharpening at your local shop. No matter how much you like “your guy”, I'm sure he or she has given you a bad sharpening at some point. When that happens, it just ruins your night. The absolute best thing I can say about this machine is I have NEVER had a bad sharpening. The ease of use, money saved, and time saved not having to go the shop, are added bonuses to knowing my edges will be perfect every time. I would highly recommend this machine to any player of any skill level."

"Completely skeptical at first. Completely convinced after the first use!"

Randy Lashinski

Player, Coach, Parent

"Completely skeptical at first. Completely convinced after the first use! Unbelievably easy to use and consistent grind every time. With my son skating AA Pee Wee and my skating 4 nights per week this unit will get its use for sure. I'm also an mechanical engineer and very impressed with the build quality. Congratulations to the team at Sparx! You've changed the game forever. "

"I think this is a must for any team or hockey family. It's a no-brainer. What took me 20 years to perfect is put into one simple machine."

Carl Cincotti

Boston Pride Equipment Manager

"I've been sharpening and repairing skates for close to 20 years. I've sharpened skates for Olympians, NHL players, and pretty much every top prospect in the Boston area at one time. I've seen pretty much every device made to sharpen skates. I think this is a must for any team or hockey family. It's a no-brainer. What took me 20 years to perfect is put into one simple machine."

"The first time I tried the Sparx, I was amazed."
