  1. I tried to Google the codes but I the numbers don't say what model it is (from what I've searched). Unless I'm just a total noon. Does CCM dress sticks or are their pro stocks what you see is what you get? I know it's a ribcor bc of the ribs but not sure if it's the exact model as the skin. http://imgur.com/gallery/Ntb7SPR

    Seeing that's all the chipped areas are where the rivets were, are you sure the damage wasn't from when you remover them from your skates? I mean, those areas would be hard to even notice with the rivets in and mounted on your skates.... The rest of the holders seem to be in good condition.

    Ccm custom skates

    Confused about the first part of your post. So you do or don't want Bauer doing a heat mould off your foot last?

    Probably won't know unless you re did the scan and it comes back fine. 6 mths is a long time to tinker around. Since the warranty period has passed, I question whether they will even honour the remake.... There's only so much you can tinker with the heel itself since it's pretty solid. You can adjust the width of the heel but not the height so if that's part of the issue you may be out of luck. Also, how is the arch? My right skate wasn't as dialed in as the left and the one thing that worked really well in locking in the heel and improving overall slippage inside the boot was altering the arch that was initially too flat. Once I increased the arch to suit my feet it felt much better. I also used a heat gun around the ankle area and just below where it's carbon fiber and squeezed the boot with my hands to make it more narrow. Once it cooled I put it on and it felt too narrow but id then heat gun the area again just enough so that the area softened just enough to relieve the tightness and that ended up making the right skate locked in. Should you have to do this for a custom slate? No. But I'm just giving you some ideas and showing you how customizable the skates are. Areas like the arch and below the ankle require more heating and patience as it's really hard carbon fiber.

    How old are your skates? Get them to remake. The right

    I've owned true and CCM within the last couple of years. I haven't owned Bauer's since my one100s about 8 years ago so I can't comment on them. The trues are by far more durable than the ccm As1s. The as1s are nice skates but they aren't worth the price point Imo. I play about once a week and in three mths the ccms show way more wear than my trues did in 1.5 years. But do your own research and at the end of the day the best fit is really all that matters.

    What was used to remove the logos on the holder?

    Can someone please post s picture of trues with xs holders? Since getting scanned I've been debating whether to get the xs holders instead of the sb 4.0s...

    Just the tongue embroidery. I should've said optional embroidery, my bad. Anyone know if the true brannock is numbered for shoe size or skate. I had a weird time reading it because the slider had a window and wasn't sure what I was supposed to look at for the sizing. And what I saw was 8.5-9 which technically is my shoe size but thought it was weird a skate brannock would have shoe sizing and not skates.... I also looked at the euro sizing which seemed right as it hovered around 41ish/42. I couldn't really see that well bc I was busy trying not to move while standing on it.

    Got scanned earlier today 3-4 week turn around. Nothing fancy. Only embroidery upgrade. Went for black regular tongues this time instead of white. Also got them to send the holder unmounted and getting SB 4.0s mounted by my LHS as I have a brand new set of blacksteel for those holders I don't want to waste. Also didn't want to buy another set of blacksteel for the true holders. This time around there were way more photos during the fit process, including pics of the feet on the true brannock and a number of various pics. My first order only had scan and maybe 4 or so pics of my feet. Well see how it goes and if me being aware of my lunge position on my right side makes a diff.

    Ask STEP!

    Are the blacksteel for the step/true holders still available? And if so how would I be able to get some? My LHS doesn't seem to be aware of them being available at all. And I've read I cannot get them through True when ordering their skates.

    Ya that's the plan

    I am going to be re scanned. As some of you might know I had issues with my right skate as it had no arch due to me being in a poor lunge position which flattened out my arch completely. Took a lot of heat gunning and tweaking to get it fitting properly but was perfect after. The left boot fit 100% perfect off the bat from just one bake and no tweaking at all. So this time around I'm gonna be cognizant of how I'm positioned. I might let the lhs to only redo the right possibly, but I'm afraid it may cause some confusion so I may just get everything re done.

    I thought jvr only has the lifts on one skate and both front and back. Wouldn't this mean to offset leg length discrepancies.
