    Custom CCM skates vs. Custom True Skates

    They both use the same software to scan. CCM basically takes a scan and prints a copy of your foot and matches it to a retail skate boot and then does a high-pressure mold of the skate around a copy of your foot. True takes the scan and builds the skate from the inside out, around the foot last. Which is better, I think they are both excellent compared to buying any traditional skate off the retail shelf. The best skate is the one that matches your skating style while also proving a good fit. We get many people who come in and ask us whats better, CCM, Bauer or True for custom skates and I always have the same answer, it's whatever you prefer.

    What is the MSRP of each machine? The profiling one and the sharpening?

    CCM Tack Fit

    AS1 fits closer to the foot.

    Vapor x900 v. Ribcor 70k

    They are both entirely different skates geared towards totally different player types and foot types.

    I have CAD so I should be able to open either. Send them over.

    Very cool. I am down to help out with design and printing as well. I have access to a ton of materials, software, and tooling. Always happy to try and create new things.

    Small knob. The handle style was already built by Torch. Maybe you can scan their design and make some improvements to their design. I have always liked their product but its HEAVY! http://www.proxrtorch.com/ If you remove the rubber cover its much lighter, but I think it can be improved upon. https://photos.app.goo.gl/jyPcxQumVb88yNQn6

    Would you be willing to share the 3D STL file so I can print one of these as well?
  11. Does anyone distribute ramonedge steel in the US? If not, can anyone get their hands on some? I am looking to test their steel. Thanks!

    Sparx Skate Sharpener - At home sharpener

    You get the customers, mindshare, and the subscription service which is where the actual money is made. I doubt they make much of anything in the manufacturing and distribution of their machines.

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    Have to agree with this as well. We have done plenty of fittings and also have never had this significant of a problem.

    What actually is "Advanced Carbon Layering"?

    Watch this. Same rules apply.
  15. I have had all three. The 9K is pretty much the standard for all girdles but is a little bulkier and heavier than the others. Super Tacks is amazing, very adjustable and protective. The Tackla is very nice but not as durable as the others. The mesh seems to wear pretty quickly and I had to reinforce some areas on mine to prevent it from tearing. Have you considered the Warrior QRE Girdle? Ive been using that and love it.
