    Spot on...
  2. Doesn't sound like the best business model.
  3. I've seen it with Step in cases where the skater just throws soakers on the skates and then they going-the bag and stay there until the next ice time. Problem of not taking care of your skates and steel. Certainly not the fault of Step.

    Ccm custom skates

    If you're referring to a MyBauer custom the following link pretty much says it all:

    Why don't manufacturers use Poron or D30 in skates?

    Bauer uses it in the ankle area of the Mission FZ-0 inline skate. Mission FZ-0

    Decision between two skates

    One other thing you can try is SuperFeet (Carbon's) footbeds in the Supreme. SuperFeet offers a 60-day money back satisfaction guarantee sorting them out would be risk free. Just trim them to the footbeds that came with the S180's. While I wouldn't call the N2900 a soft boot the S180 is a stiffer boot with the composite (CURV) quarter package.

    Bauer Vapor 2x skates

    I've seen it all. Skaters with the shallow/low volume foot skating in a high volume skate and those with a high volume foot in a low volume skate. That and in skates way too big. I tell customers that the scanner recommends best fit or primary fit. Everyone has a secondary fit. You just have to have a fitter who knows what he/she is doing and knows how to read the scan and scanner. Recommended sizing is a good starting point, but skater preference plays a role in final sizing,

    Fine tuning my skate profile

    Not really sure I have the right answers for you. CAGONE bases their profiling recommendations on runner size. I skate in 254mm runners so going by CAGONE the longest flat spot for 254's would be 40mm. I tried ProSharp's system and out of the ones I tried I liked the triple and quad profiles, but in the end went back to a 35/65 done on a Pro Skate Balance machine. I've been told that a 35/65 correlates to a 13.5' radius. Using that information other glide spots should come out to this: 60mm = 13' 50mm = 12' 40mm = 11' 30mm = 10' 20mm = 9'

    Gloves with the best finger protection?

    Correct on the 1X Pro. I'd give the edge to the FT1 if it has D30 in the fingers too.

    Gloves with the best finger protection?

    Not that I know of. I was told it was to expensive to use in the fingers. I think if there was it would be well know from a marketing standpoint.

    Gloves with the best finger protection?

    Poron is pricey and I've only seen it used in the back hand of the glove. I'm guessing that D30 would be the same since it's a licensed product just like poron.

    Bauer custom stick blade weights?

    Depends upon the stick build. Low kick has options of extra stiff, stiff, and medium. Mid kick has stiff, medium, and soft. High kick has medium, soft, and extra soft.

    Fit profile Bauer skates?

    Supreme is a shallower boot whereas the Vapor has more volume.

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    The goal of most retailers is not to fit you to level of one's play and what is best, but rather to put you or your child in the most expensive skate you willing to pay for.

    Bauer Vapor 2x skates

    A few questions: What size are the skates? What size footwear do you normally wear? Did they have the 3D Skate Lab and scan your feet?
