    280 holders on a size 7EE skate?

    I've done +2 oversize a few times. There's literally no room for error. Nowadays, I use a Custom Skateworks RAT-300 for tricky mount jobs/install clean holes. If you aren't up for it, have him reach out to me.
  3. Tongue - he probably would want the HD tongue. It's CCM's version of the Supreme molded (ONE95) tongue. The Pro Lightweight is something very similar to a TotalONE tongue. The air mesh option is exactly as it sounds. Graf used to offer it back in the day. I assume they have a grip liner of some sort that is offered at pro. I'm not at my desk so I'm doing this strictly off of memory. Advanced facing is the entire boot, all in 1/4" increments. You have two forward options and one recessed option. It's usually the next size up, unless you choose other and request 2 sizes up.

    Mako1 vs mako 2 skate

    It depends. If you have too much wrap in the boot after bake, it could be problematic. Remember, heat expands. Baking does a better job to push thickness out, not draw it in to make narrower.

    Mako1 vs mako 2 skate

    Fit didn't change. They rounded off the edges on the bottom of the skate. On the original Mako, the edge was square, and it would break pretty cleanly along that edge. Also, they flared out the top of the ankle package to address what you described.

    Canadian Tire acquires Sher-Wood

    Furthermore, Sher-Wood didn't have a booth at the pro equipment trade show (well, technically InGlasCo did for pucks)

    Step Steel

    The point I was trying to make was exactly that. If he was able to skate on LS3 unprofiled this entire time, Step should feel better because it's shaped better.

    Step Steel

    They're both 10' but Stem is a bit more game-ready in relation to the heels and toes. If you skated all this time on LS3 unprofiled, Step would be an upgrade.

    BlackEdge LS2 or Step Blacksteel

    For the old holder? If you're using LS3, go Step. The height will be closer. Blackedge is LS2 height.

    New skates lost heel lock after baking

    He's in New Zealand. LOL that's funny.

    Bauer Advanced Series Stick

    Never got to see it. I was let go before we were allowed to open the shipment.

    Blademaster Slick-It

    Not sure what it actually is; haven't used it in ages. I use WD-40 to strip the table, then make sure it's completely dry. Gel-Gloss works well, it has carnauba wax in it. Blackstone's Tef-Top puck works well in lieu of Slick-It.

    Picking a Profile

    Typically for Supremes, if everything feels good except for pitch, I would put in a heel lift. It's inexpensive and doesn't affect steel life. Whenever I wear a Supreme skate, I put one in immediately.
