    CCM skate durability

    I personally would warranty them. Regardless of how much time you spent getting them dialed in, they are of no use to you if they have a catastrophic failure.

    If he wants the extra work. Its literally a remove and replace job. But whatever floats his boat.

    San Jose Sharks (P2) vs. Vegas Golden Knights (P3)

    Game 7 was probably the worst game of these playoffs. It was like watching one of them late September games... Until the last 5 minutes penalty. Then it became a true game 7. I wonder how many people have already left the game after throwing some shit on ice... They missed some ending. Unfortunately, the crappier of the night team won this time. But hey, Sharks made it to game 7 OT, so let's see if this was a fluke or they actually can step up.

    Boston Bruins (A2) vs. Toronto Maple Leafs (A3)

    Game was actually pretty intense and both teams came out to play. Leafs just could not get it done. I think Freddy was not on top of his game to bail a rather non playoff D, but forwards really tried.

    My skate guy wants to first epoxy the holes and fill them anyway before re-drilling them, is that a good idea?

    CCM skate durability

    They're fine. I wouldn't even worry about it. As for the softening, that's what skates are supposed to do as they break in.

    That's not being an a-hole... This is being an a-hole.... Never challenge a Bruins fan to an asshole contest, it's not a fair fight.

    CCM skate durability

    I currently own retail CCM as1s and have had them for just shy of three months. I play roughly once a week and although the last few ice times have been fairly competitive as I was in a tournament and also beer league playoffs. My last skates were Trues that were Rock solid after 1.5 years. Ended up selling them to get the as1s (which I now regret) Prior to that were Bauer one100s that lasted me 7 years. My as1s have taken a beating and it shows with gashes and scratches etc. That part does bother me but today I noticed a small 1/2 inch dent in the inside of my right heel. I felt it and that area is soft and I can push slightly. The surrounding composite is still hard but I have no idea how this happened. If I blocked a shot I would have remembered, but it could've been a a clearing attempt or shot that wasn't very hard but hard enough to cause the damage. I also noticed that although the boot itself is still pretty stiff when I handle it, when on my feet it feels like it's flexing a lot more than when it was new. I'm only 165 lbs so I'm not a heavy guy. I heard from my uncle that the CCM skates just don't hold up as he has seen a lot of minor hockey kids' CCM skates that donye even last a season. I didn't think this would be an issue for me as I play once a week. Just wondering if this is the general consensus with ccms skates, particularly the as1 and ft1. I know part of the ft2 marketing is that they state they are more durable so this makes me think CCM.is aware of the issue at least with the ft1? My skates are still under warranty by about a week but Im not going to bother going through the warranty process and get new skates since I did spend a lot of time making these fit perfectly. PS. These skates have only been baked once and spot heated in areas not related to the area of concern. No punching etc either.

    @JR Boucicaut I saw your post on the RAT here, would you mind giving some insight into how you would do alignment of a fresh skate both without specialized tools (to show what we are trying to achieve) and with such a tool (to show how mechanical engineers assist in achieving it - twitter #1, #2)? Would be greatly appreciated.
  13. Thanks! Do you find the FT2 maybe even not stiff enough, that you would get extra stiff as an option? Or does it allow a perfect amount of flex for you? For reference, I'm 155lbs, fairly strong skater (I'm... uh bottom heavy) though but the AS1s have felt ... ski-booty, but I've only had them a week so I presume I have to break them in a bit

    Leave it to Boston fans to be assholes whenever they get the chance.

    The XS holes line up with the LS Edge and the VH/TRUE holder.
  16. I feel like the heel pocket is more pronounced. Not wider. They just made the entire pocket larger to accommodate more volume while still keeping it very snug in the upper heel and achilles section. If you go with 3D scanning then it really doesn't matter what skate you pick as they will size it appropriately, as per CCM. I think its more important to find the skate that provides you with the ideal skating stance and stiffness for your skating profile more than anything. They cant make an AS1 less stiff and you can't get the FT2 in a stiffer version.
  17. FT2 is slightly stiffer than then FT1, and I really do emphasizes slightly. Barely noticeable. The AS1 is MUCH stiffer than the Ft1 and FT2. Ill measure the boot height. I think the FT2 is maybe 1-2mm taller in the height but that could specifically be due to the comfort edge. I find the sizing, length, the same. A size 7.5 in an FT2 is the same as an AS1. Obviously, the width is different so in an AS1 In wear a 7.5D and in the FT2 I wear a 7.5EE.

    Nexus pants going the way of the dodo?

    The Nexus and Supreme lines are going to "merge" and the Nexus line is slowly going to be phased out entirely over time. Similar to how CCM has the JetSpeed and the Tacks lines, Bauer will start doing the same.
  19. Do you find a significant difference in stiffness between the FT1/FT2 and the AS1? And in the comfort of the comfortedge pad/height of the boot? Also, are they sized the same (8.5 in an FT2 = same length as an AS1)? Thanks!

    Nexus pants going the way of the dodo?

    I don't remember where I heard it and it may have been bad info. Apparently the 2S Pro pants will be a continuation of the Supreme line's hybrid style while the rest of the line will be a Nexus-like fit. It might be incorrect but it seems as if the Nexus pants are more popular than Supremes, so it may be possible.
  22. Haven’t seen anything regarding a “2N” and the 1N has been on clearance for some time now. Is Bauer dropping down to only tapered pant (Vapor) and hybrid pant-girdle (Supreme) offerings? Curious as I’m in the market new pants and love my Nexus 800s - I guess it’s a question of stocking up on what’s currently available or waiting for a new model if one does in fact exist.

    I’m glad I went to do something productive instead of watch that garbage pile of a hockey game. Ended up walking five miles instead. Got home just after it ended. Perfect timing.

    Jersey is back in the closet, and flag has been taken down. Another year, another disappointment.

    Strong pain in my feet

    There are no red areas but you can see the lines of the tongue and the boot pressed into my feet. The custom insoles have been a try to fix my pain issue. They are special orthopedic hockeyinsoles, thin, hard and fitting perfect into my skates. The penciltest shows that the middle three eylets are touching and lifting the pencil for about one to two millimeters. In the toe- and anklearea, i have lots of space maybe five millimeters or more. My LHS guy told me to tie the first three eylets loose, the middle three eylets tight and the upper three loose again, otherwise the quarterpackage of my skates will crack. For todays hockey-session (90mins) i was trying nonwaxed laces tying tight-loose-tight. The pain was definitely better, which means that tying tight is one factor for my pain. The other one must be, and feels like weightdistribution on the footsole. But unfortunately on both skates the area of the fith outer eylet bulges out a lttle like a dog-ear, the beginnig of a crack? I´m in Nexus D, Supreme EE was too wide for me. My LHS guy wants to put me in True`s. But that´s too heavy for a beginner like me.
