    FSWer, I hope you can follow this link to see this photo. It's of the synchro team Nexxice, doing a lift where the girls are lifting a guy. I'd never seen that done before. I thought you would be interested, so I posted it here where I was sure you would see it.

    Dana's On-Ice Public-Sk8 Report..2/17/13

    Well everyone!!! Here it is......

    My Staff got me to the Rink at about 11:50. A Hockey Game was finishing up,so I had to wait. When I got into the Rink (Blue) I got my Skates on,and got them at least as tight as I could. I must say that I got them on before the Zamboni came out!!! It's the first time I've ever beaten the Zamboni!!! LOL. Anyway,when I got on the Ice,I practiced some more of my 2-Foot Spin. As well as my Backward Skating,and Gliding. A Birthday Party was sharing the Rink with us too.

    Are you asking how to know what skating laces to buy? Take out one of the laces of your skates. Then measure it. Now you know what length to buy.

    LOL,I was asking if you can USE the same length and color in Hockey Laces in Figure Skates if your Rink's Proshop doesn't carry black Figure Skate Laces.

    For recreational skating, it doesn't matter. If you are an advanced skater, you will have a preference as to the materials the skates are made from (the amount of stretch in the lace, certain rituals that have to feel a certain way). But just for regular skating, as long as the laces are long enough it won't matter.

    Most hockey laces are wider than figure skating laces, so using the wide laces in figure skates stretches the figure skate holes. Unless the skate has metal eyelets (most don't these days) the hockey laces will damage the leather eyelets. They also don't fit around the hooks very well, so they tend to slip off.

    Ask the pro shop to order you black laces if you need them. They can help you estimate the length needed for the skates without removing the laces to measure. It's some formula based on the number of eyelets/hooks. You might need to wait a few weeks, so if you think you need them, order now and keep them in your skate bag until needed. FSWer only skates an hour or two a week, seasonally. I think the laces should be okay.

    I think from what I understand,my Rink's Pro-shop Specailizes mostly in Hockey. I am not sure,but I don't think they carry much for Figure Skaters. Is there a way to tell yourself,if you don't know anything about fitting laces,and matching them to Skates,if they will fit without damaging the skates or holes? Because I've heard that Pro-Shop people don't always know what there talking about. BTW. if laces ARE for Figure Skates,will it say on the package?

    Pretty much all pro shops specialize mostly in hockey. Even if they don't carry much for figure skaters, they will have laces. If they don't have exactly the size you need, they will be able to get the right size. Talk to them. They will try to help you, because they want you to buy laces from them.

    The rinks you go to, FSWer, have lots of figure skaters in them. The pro shop people will know what you need.

    It might be different if you were at a seasonal rink or one that had very little figure skating ice time and only a couple of general coaches. But that's not the case where you are.
    I'd rather be thought of as absolutely ridiculous than as absolutely boring.

    If your not sure about if a Pro-shop guy knows enough himself. Can you safefuly say that as long as laces go through the holes...they are right enough?

    The pro shop guy will know enough to know which laces are the right ones for figure skates. Use laces meant for figure skates, not hockey skates. Like FigureSpins already said, hockey laces are thicker and might slip off the hooks on figure skates. The pro shop guy will know whether the laces they have are for hockey skates or figure skates. If they don't have the kind you need, they can get them for you.

    FSWer, I don't understand what you mean by "sideways skating". Can you explain more about what you're trying to do?
