Risport Scott Hamilton Figure Skate Set
Blade – MK Flight

I’ve had these skates for about 5 months now and I finally feel like I can talk about them! My coach recommended them because I needed more ankle mobility for dance (previously on Jackson Artiste), and I noticed an immediate difference between the Mark IV blades and the MK Flight blades! MK makes pretty thin blades, which made the first hour pretty wobbly but my muscles adjusted. The toepick is just aggressive enough that if you want to do singles up to axel you can. Because of the shorter profile of the Risport boot, the blade is also a bit shorter so you don’t have to trip on the tail on tight footwork.
Speaking of the boot, I felt like the boot has a couple of issues to work out in the first months. The tongue curves in A LOT and put a lot of pressure on my ankles until I could kind of mold it to my foot a bit. The boot is also kind of wide, so if you have a narrow foot, you might experience some heel slippage.
Overall though, it’s a crazy great beginner/intermediate boot despite its softness.
I’d recommend this for someone who has a bit of ankle strength already, maybe a little bit on the lighter side (under 170 pounds if you’re jumping) to avoid breaking down too soon.
