Default Mission building quad hockey skates?

Has anybody heard that Mission, the inline skate company, is planning a new Rink Hockey skate?

Would be nice to have more Roller Hockey Manufacturers although it needs a rhetttro mounted plate on there not that skateboard!

I want to try out that boot. The plate looks like a Roll Line knock off. The wheels do too but, I'd like to try them.

My thoughts too - looks like Roll-Line knock-offs... but I'd give em a try for the right price (maybe with that heel chopped off... and definitely with a plate that fits under the boot a little better!)

Any more info on these? I've been all over Missions web site and Facebook page with no luck. Could it be something to do with the Bauer buy out? The wheel hubs look very much like Chromed Roll Line Rapido's. We need answers LoL
The plate and wheels may very well be Roll lines and these have been de-badged re-branded to show off the boots maybe wish he'd have moved his hand a little it could be a Mistral?

IDK, the action nut and top cushion retainer don't look right to be a Roll Line.
The hub does look like a Roll Line.

But Reno is putting out their wheels on a similar hub too

All I've heard is "European market first".

That's what I thought too - maybe Crazy Skates? Probably just another knock-off of some sort.

I emailed Steve at Slapshot UK and asked if he'd heard anything but he said no, nothing on his end about these.

He thought maybe they were just a mockup.

I'll have to try to remember to ask Gary at Wigan Rink about this when I see him again - he's a Mission dealer (amongst other brands).

The plate really looks like one of the Chinese Roll Line copies ... also, holy mounting bolts!

Boot looks worthwhile, would be nice to see a quality non-carbon boot to give Reno some competition

That makes a lot of sense. US company importing from China.

Did you notice the Model: QW-005 Quad wheels? Like eerily similar to the Anabolix Cham I.

Spoke to Gary last night, the "Mission" ones are fakes.

According to his contact there they never have any intention of entering the quad market.

So, as other posters have already pointed out, the boots in the OP are chinese knock-offs.
