Easton Synergy 1300c Skate
Posted 25 November 2007 - 05:33 PM
I've had my Easton Ultra Lite's (7D) from like '04 and I have came to the realization that they are not stiff enough for my skating ability...(I am on the ice on average of 2 times a week either playing or teaching, 5'6, 150 lbs, Div. 1 men's league level, 16-17 years exp.)
I work at a sporting goods store where we sell the Easton Synergy 1300c skate...I think the first composite skate that came out in like Winter 05-06(?) or whenever...
Anyways, I'm thinking about getting a pair of them (6.5D) since I can get a deal on them...just wondering if anyone has used this skate or know anyone that has used them and what your opinion of them are regarding stiffness, flex, performance, etc.

I put Lightspeeds on them as well, I was never a fan of the Razor Bladz.

Yeah I find Easton skates fit me the best, I have a narrow-ish heel and a medium-like forefoot...I have Moreton's toe where my second toe is a little bit longer than my big toe so my toes fit nice and snug in the toe box.
I assume that the 1300s may not be AS stiff as the S15's are now since they are not like the Texalium Carbon material like the S15's are but stiff enough to support my skating.

When we got them in the store the boxes had the skate bake time info and such, HOWEVER on the outsoles of the skate it said like 'Warning! Heat-molding skate will void warranty, etc.' Basically as per instructions from our Head Office we had to remove the stickers from the boxes so we wouldnt screw over customers who wanted to get their skates molded.
From what I hear, the consensus says that they are NOT heat-moldable. I'm not going to risk baking them, I'll just break them in the old-fashioned way ;)

i got my 1500's coming from 04 Z-air comp SE's and the fit was incredible. the 1500 and s15 have been the best fitting skates ive ever worn. If your current easton fit well and didnt take much breaking in etc then i reckon u will have no problems at all going into the 1300
