    Pretty sure the difference is in the steel.

    Decision between two skates

    Kind of sounds like you need a EE width Supreme... Anyway go with the Supreme. You can punch and stretch it to help it fit you better. The problem with your arches could be a volume related, especially if you're cranking down on the laces mid boot.
  3. I wouldn't dub those points as facts. They're more like guidelines, and fuzzy at that. Though changing hollows with changing ice conditions is not uncommon. It's very much personal preference. There are too many examples to say otherwise.

    Yeah, I'm good with the additional info, thanks anyway.

    Gee, flip13 disagrees me...there's a shocker. Let me dumb it down for everyone. In the orginal pic of Nylander he looks a lot like Pasta, enough so to warrant a snarky remark, which I provided. Not sure why that got everyone's panties in a bunch. And yes, William and David are friends. It's pretty well documented.

    It's not the number, they actually look alike. Being friends makes it even weirder.

    I think you've been given some bad Intel. There is a absolutely a glide surface (aka flat) on a single radius. That flat, let's call it a flat for ease of discussion, will increase or decrease depending on runner size. So it's there and it's defined by those factors, radius and runner length. The CAG as I understand it adds a defined flat on top of the flat that's already there. The beauty is you can put that flat wherever you want unlike the flat from your radius. Sounds to me like the OP is looking for the benefits of a combo radius without getting one. More flat and better agility without losing stability, that's a combo.

    The scan is not the end all be all of fitting. The scanner may suggest one thing but the player may be more comfortable in another. Did you spend any time in them after you were scanned?

    When did David Pasternak sign with the Leafs...
  10. All mine say 40, that includes 3 different hollows and one Fire.

    Gloves with the best finger protection?

    See if you can find a Vapor 1X Pro glove. Very well built and protective glove. Link for reference. https://www.hockeymonkey.com/bauer-hockey-gloves-vapor-1x-pro-sr.html

    I would expect the new models to differ from the previous one. The new toe cap alone would be enough to notice it. Speaking of the toe cap, it looks huge. Heel cup looks wider as well. So maybe it has a bit more volume overall. I wasn't keen on the looks when the pics came out. Seeing them in person changed my mind. I still think the yellow accents look out of place.
  13. Sweat is nasty stuff, much worse than straight up water. It's not how do I prevent it, it's how do I slow it down. I had wished the titanium cage came with titanium hardware, it should for the price. If parts were more standardized they could be replaced with nylon screws.

    When your foot settles all the way back into the boot that trouble spot might move enough to where it's now punchable.
