    Is this holder mounted properly?

    MCornell, The holder is not centered on the outsole but the outsole is not centered on the boot, so if you look at the position of the holder relative to the boot, it doesn't look as bad and might be within tolerances.

    It's cold in a rink. Do a test and put your watch in your refrigerator at home for a couple of hours and see if that slows it down.

    Unless I'm mistaken, the rivet hole pattern on the old Step holder matched the Tuuk model, right? Now if you want to swap out the True holders for Tuuk, you'll have to drill new additional holes in the boot. Maybe I'm out of the loop but what's the current policy on ordering True skates with/without holders, or drilled for holders other than True. And it just looks a bit "cheap" for the lack of a better word to not have dedicated left and right holders. It feels like a "cutting corners" measure. WTF is going on with my favorite skate brand.

    I still have my first pair of VH skates with the carbon fiber toe cap, and I took this picture of what holds the velcro strip to the toe cap. It's an 8-32 thread.

    To be fair, I actually preferred the original tongue that came with the first VH skates. I thought that the felt tongue was to appease the conservatively-minded hockey player, and was actually a downgrade from the original dense foam tongue that was thicker in the center and tapered toward the sides, and it contained a stiff thermoformable plate to conform to the top of the foot and protect it from lace bite.

    The new tongue looks a lot like the one VH offered as an option a few years ago. And that was just a thinner version of the original tongue from a few years earlier. IIRC, the felt tongue had replaced the original tongue by popular demand.

    Tendinitis help?

    Here's a bit of shot in the dark, but ask a coach or more experienced player to check your stick handling technique. Or maybe you could try something like this:

    Alternative to True skates?

    I assume that common procedure with VH skates is the same as it was Pre-True. Volume fine tuning is made by removing the red insole liner to increase volume, or thickening it to reduce volume. The OP should just try the thicker liner and if the skate is still too large, have the boots re-made after re-scanning or re-measuring to determine where the process went wrong.

    But the Mako was derived from the MLX which was designed by Scott Van Horne. So do you consider imitating your own design imitation?

    It's ironic that the VH skates that I bought before True took over had tan Clarino liners by default.

    If you go back to the first VH skate, the current skate would be more like V3 or V4. And with all the small constant changes along the way, it's like they had V1.1, V1.2, V2.1, V2.2, etc. I mean my VH skates are identical to the ones that came out a month later except for the "improved" tendon guard. I don't know when the last small improvement was made, if there have been any since True took over. But, unlike other brands, if True has kept the VH philosophy, rather than introducing new models with new graphics just to jack up the price, and holding back all the improvements ntil the "next model", they will just be constantly evolving the current model... unless True doesn't continue the VH way of doing things, that is.

    Is this holder mounted properly?

    Wouldn't it be off by 4.5mm since the rear tower should be 4.5mm more toward the rear and the front tower 4.5mm toward the front to have the 9mm longer holder centered fore and aft?

    Is this holder mounted properly?

    Maybe because longer is not necessarily better.

    Is this holder mounted properly?

    How about 263 holders with Step XL steel? If I'm not mistaken the XL steel is longer than regular Step.
