Cyclone Taylor (Surrey)

Has anyone sharpened their skates in Cyclone Taylor (Surrey) and can vouch if it's of the same quality as their Vancouver location?

I thought I was happy with The Hockey Shop but as good as they are at sharpening skates, I find that they're taking wayyy too much steel per sharpen (which I only noticed recently as my steel is not lasting as long as it used to)

And funnily enough, I sharpened more oftenly when I used to live in Vancouver (with CT Vancouver) at between 3 - 4 games than I do now in Surrey which is more like somewhere between 5 - 10 games.

If your talking about the 152nd and Highway 10 location, then I have their sharpening a handful of times. No complains really, I feel they are pretty close to their Richmond Ice location and the Richmond location is by far my favourite.

Oddly, my sharpenings last no longer than 2 games from any of their locations. I say odd, cause I'm not a heavy guy nor an extremely powerful skater. Not saying I can't skate, but I just don't know why my sharpenings can't last long.
