    First Time Girdle User?

    Now I'm back to square one! Haha. I'm a huge Warrior guy, but some of the reviews had people not liking the adjustment options. You are really satisfied with the comfort and mobility levels?

    Did you try on the CCM? I want to make sure their is enough adjustability. I live in the middle of nowhere, so my LHS has nothing. I was at the closest big LHS this weekend and they didn't have the CCM. The warrior felt comfortable and light.

    First Time Girdle User?

    Hey guys! I'm making the switch over to a girdle. I had my eyes on the Super Tacks. After reading this board's reviews, I was just about to pull the trigger. I wanted to see if after being out a few months, if anyone preferred the new Warrior or Tackla? I'm really interested in the adjustability, which swayed me to CCM. Thanks!

    New Blackedge Steel?

    Anyone? Still cannot find them in 280.

    New Blackedge Steel?

    Hey all! I've been trying to get my hands on some Blackedge ls2 280mm runners. It seems like most places have been sold out for a while. Is there any news on maybe a new style or product update?

    Wheels/Bearings Help?

    Thanks! Do you happen to know exactly what wheels those were? Was I right on my guess? Or is there another brand with the same softness and such?

    Wheels/Bearings Help?

    Howdy all, I really love my CCM Externo Cage skates that I got probably in 2003. The boots are in perfect shape. The issue I have now is getting some new wheels. They originally came with Hyper Formula G 74A wheels. The issue is that they came with micro bearings. Does anyone know if these are still available anywhere? Or is there a way to convert the bigger bearings to fit my micros? I have probably done 10+ hours of searching without finding exactly what I'm looking for. Does anyone have a guess of what sizes these wheels were stock? The back seem to be bigger, but they are so worn out, I can not tell for sure. http://www.inlineskates.com/CCM-Cage-Inline-Hockey-Skates/24911P,default,pd.html#pdpSpecs http://www.hyperwheels.com/products/formula-g-micro-orange/
  8. Hey all! I'm going to pick up a spare pair of steel for my VH skates. I already have Step, but I'm coming from the normal LS2 in my last skates, so I'm looking to have that as a backup. Is the Blackedge version of the LS2 the way to go? Does it outperform the Bauer LS2 standard? TIA!

    Are you using Step?

    Thanks for the responses! I had LS2 holders put on, in hopes of matching. It sounds like with matching holders, the boots should be very similar?

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    Hey all, Have skated about 5 hours in my VH skates so far. They are BY far the most comfortable skates I have ever worn. I just had a question for anyone who might know? I used to skate in Bauer Supreme 70's. Does anyone know what level of pitch the VH boot has? For example, my Bauer's felt flat, while my Mako's were definitely pitched forward. I don't have my old skates to compare to, as I tossed them. They were beyond disgusting. Thanks!

    LS2 To Step?

    Hey all! First off, I know practically nothing about this stuff. I have always just laced my skates and skated. I've been skating on LS2 steel since I purchased my Bauer Supreme 70's back in 2007? Maybe earlier? It had the factory profile on it, 9? I just bought some custom VH skates that came with Step steel. I had a few questions for all the knowledgeable folks here. First, my skating-- 1. I ref 100+ high school games a year. (A lot of 4-man, so quite a bit of standing still) 2. I play around 25 recreational adult league games a year. 3. I have been skating on super dull, grounded down (Banana?) blades for the past 8ish years. I rarely sharpen my skates. There's probably 1/4 steel left, and it's been that way for years. 4. I am hoping to get another 10ish years on these skates/blades. Questions? 1. Should I profile my Step to match the 9 profile on the LS2? 2. Should I grind down, or leave the extra toe and heel that comes with Step? 3. Should I grind some steel off in order to somewhat match the height of old blades? Now, I'm sure I've been sacrificing some abilities by using my current set up. So, I am open to ideas on what would be best! TIA!

    Any date update on this? Can't wait to compare!

    Bauer Supreme 170 vs 180

    I really don't see myself doing anything more than reffing. I do ref a lot of games a year, but I still expect them to last around 5+ years.
