Leonardography says:

The original Makos are crap. I got one shot onto the heel and they broke (hurt like a bitch btw). But to be honest that is not a surprise. Easton used GFRP (Glasfiber reinforced plastic) The Glasfibers were metalized with aluminum thats why they look silver. Fortunately they went with real CFRP (carbonfiber reinforced plastic) for the Mako II and hopefully they are more reliable.
My recommendation – DON’T BUY THE MAKO I – I am really dissatisfied

Excellent review, excellent presentation.  Nice work!

Danny Hsu says:

Great review of the Mako Skate.. I’ve had original Mako for 4 month and it was just as you mentioned the ankle padding broken down to no support at all and also slight rubbing just above my ankle area. As a result I was lucky the store replaced me with a pair of Mako II which was the first pair they got and happens to be my size.

Had a skate for the first time in Mako II last night and I can immediately feel the padding insert was better firm material compared to Original Mako, also the thicker more flexible tongue was a lot more comfortable yet having good responsiveness.

Easton have done a great job with Mako II, eliminating all the issues and downside of Original Mako Skate!

James Downing says:

Andy S Tan says:

Hi guys, I played ice hockey since I was 12 years old. I want to start playing again, The last time I played was 2005. What is the best skates that you can recommend for me, my budget is around 150-200 dollars. I was using Bauer supreme 5000 and then CCM Pro Tacks 2004 back in the days :). Thx before 🙂
