ACTON, Mass., Aug. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Sparx Hockey, the leading developer of easy-to-use, automated at-home skate sharpening systems, today unveiled its latest products, the new Sparx Sharpener and Sparx Sharpener Pro. The two new products build on Sparx Hockey’s tremendous success with its revolutionary first-generation of automated skate sharpeners and are now available for immediate purchase.

“The first generation Sparx Sharpener changed the skate sharpening process forever and we are excited to unveil the new Sparx Sharpener to the hockey and figure skating community,” said Russell Layton, CEO and Founder, Sparx Hockey. “More than two years ago we set out to create a new product that had the same precision and professional-level results as the original Sparx Sharpener, but in a more compact and lightweight design. With the tremendous feedback from our first model, we were also committed to making the new product more affordable so that more families, teams and individuals could experience the benefits of a Sparx sharpening. We are proud that we have delivered on both objectives with the new Sparx Sharpener and we are excited to bring it to market.”

The new Sparx Sharpener is now available to purchase for just $699.99 and features the same precision sharpening components as the first generation Sparx Sharpener, but with more than a 40% reduction in overall size and weight. The new Sparx Sharpener also features enhancements to the grinding motor and an updated operating system to ensure optimal sharpener performance.

In addition to the new Sparx Sharpener, Sparx Hockey also unveiled the new Sparx Sharpener Pro.  The Pro model features the same sharpening performance as the standard Sparx Sharpener, but also includes the new Sparx Pro Base which is a heavy-duty metal docking station with an integrated tempered glass user access panel.  The Sparx Sharpener Pro is a unique 2-in-1 system that allows the user to easily transform the sharpener from the Pro Base, to the more compact and lightweight Standard Base for traveling. When connected to the Pro Base, the Sparx Sharpener Pro is similar in size and weight to the original Sparx Sharpener and is now available to purchase for $899.99.
