    Vapor XXXX skates to what?

    I’d go with a CCM 70k or 68k if they fit your overall foot shape. A full composite boot shell is going to feel like crap compared to the flexible Vapor boot that you’re used to. I loved the Vapor XX, XXX, and XXXX but everything after that feels like a ski boot.
  4. Looking for recommendations for skating socks that don’t fit super tight and compress the crap out of my toes and high instep. See below, I have a few of these and a similar CCM model and hate them: https://www.hockeymonkey.com/catalog/product/view/id/338462 I’m basically looking for something that feels like a thin dress sock and allows my toes to wiggle, while providing a bit more tech on the moisture wicking front. Thanks guys.

    Supreme S29 vs Totalone NXG

    I’ve worn One90s, NXG, MX3, and 1S and have never had an issue with the flexible tendon guard on any of them. As long as you pull the skates off from the tops of the eyelet area and not the tendon guard itself it will be fine. I’d also avoid wrapping your laces around the skates as that will put pressure on it (or any tendon guard really).
  6. I’d look into a custom Ribcore 70k or soon to be 80k. They’re the right mix of new tech with the old school feel and flexibility. Outside of that, Both Bauer and CCM can do a full custom boot for you in any of the models on offer. Trues (in my view) are absolute junk in comparison.
  7. FWIW I think CCMs team sticks are far superior to the other brand’s offerings.

    My Bauer sticks

    I didn’t like it - felt like/looked like I was playing with a shovel.

    Supreme S29 vs Totalone NXG

    NXGs aren’t vintage - that’s a tremendous skate by today’s standards. I’d go with the D width in that skate as it’s the equivalent of an E width on Bauer’s baseline scale - the supremes are built on an oversized last. It’s a super moldable boot and I have a feeling the EE S29 will be sloppy after break in. Remember skates are supposed to fit snug and minimize negative space as opposed to fitting like a sneaker for comfort.

    What exactly is 'performance fit?'

    I think of it as no negative space whatsoever + no pain.

    Nexus pants going the way of the dodo?

    This. Perhaps the liner is keeping gear fresh for too long which means less frequent repeat purchases. Or it’s too expensive. Who knows. Either way - it seems like too many good innovations in this industry get canned for no reason.

    Nexus pants going the way of the dodo?

    Interesting. Will the top end “traditional” Supreme pant be fully spec’ed with 37.5 et al? Thanks guys.
  13. 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.
  14. Mint near new condition, no smell whatsoever. Super rare nowadays. Asking $100 shipped within the US or trade for a similar condition pair of CLs/RBZs in a large. https://imgur.com/a/g1XWRQd
