  1. Looking for some advice. Skated my entire life in CCM/Reebok and use a 9' radius with a minor forward pitch on epro 280 holders size 8.5D skates. I have finally exhausted my last pair of Reebok 20K from my playing days and need to finally get a new pair of skates. I have a pair of 50K Ribcore and JetSpeeds and like the fit of both skates and have tried using my old profile on the skates, but cannot adjust to the SB 4.0 Holders. I feel like my heels are are pitched too high and am tripping on quick starts and can not effectively turn. Call me a dinosaur (32 years skating in CCMs) who is set in his ways but I have not been able to dial in a similar profile. Very frustrating. I have used no icing sports and my local LHS to match profiles and was informed there is no difference in pitch between epro and SB 4.0, only that the holder itself is 4mm taller. Either the information is incorrect or I am dropping too much money trying to get my profile correct because I can definitely tell a difference. Maybe the boots themselves are different, I really don't know at this point. A quick aside, I was watching the Wings and Sharks game tonight and noticed that Datsyuk was wearing JetSpeeds with epro holders, but didn't see shims are any signs that his skates were meant to look like a JetSpeeds. I am looking for advice and have access to several LHS here in Minnesota that can do profiling or skate services. I am hoping there are some players out there that have experienced similar issues. 1. Get my Epro put on a new boot, I have 10 pair of epro and custom steel to last a life time, but would hate to have to use shims or filler on a new skate. Got to be an easier way. 2. Continue to mess with profile (I have messed with neutral and slightly backwards profiles) but haven't found anything that suits my needs. 3. Look for old CCM and Reebok Skates on discount, but would prefer to upgrade my skates; hence the whole point of my post. Thanks for reading.

    APX2 LS3 Profiling

    Hi, I switched from vapours to vapour APX2. Can anyone recommend a starting profile? I am 150lbs. I play forward mostly LW. I feel like the old vapours were way better at quick turns and breaking away. THey also had a better grip. I'm not sure how I feel about the pitch. Thanks!
  3. I am returning to hockey after a long layoff. Last I skated, there was no aggressive pitch. Additionally, I need a flat pitch to keep the dynamic forces of movement out of my knee, and inside the muscles. Which skates have the least aggressive pitch? I am interested in Reebok (whichever)K, Bauer, and CCM RBZ. I am thinking that the Nexus line will have the least aggressive pitch out of anything on the market, and thus they are the frontrunner, just curious if anyone here has any thoughts.
