    Super Tacks AS1 Skates

    Now that the preview video from Chase is out, what are everyone’s thoughts? I for one am interested in learning more about this custom boot program from CCM. Though this is for a team account, it says they’ll send a rep out with a 3D scanner. Does this mean the boot will fit your foot better now?

    Graf Skates

    I know there are a bunch of threads about the demise of Graf Canada, but I was curious if anyone had any insight re: whether Graf is making a comeback. They seem to be (at least somewhat) active on social media, but it looks like they're just focused on custom orders, and the only website I can find is the Swiss one. Any idea if those of us in the States might be able to buy Grafs again in the near future?
  5. I've been skating in Bauer one nines for several years & have never been particularly happy with them - first time in twenty-five years of playing that I ever experienced lace bite, despite having almost exclusively worn stiff, top-end skates. It was a problem when they were new and now has become a big problem again as they're breaking down, but almost exclusively in one skate. (I assume I'm overcompensating for the boots getting softer by tying them too tight). I did the pencil test early on, and I don't think it's a volume issue. Also, skate stiffness had never been an issue for me, but the current pair is the first full-composite skates I've worn, so I realize that might be a part of the issue. That said, the fact that the lace bite has persisted even as the skates have gotten softer/more forgiving makes me somewhat skeptical that I could remedy the problem by just dropping down a rung on the Supreme ladder. Over the years, I had liked the Supreme line, and my previous two pairs of skates before these were 8090s and Graf 705s, both of which I had liked a lot. When I bought the one.9s, I tried on whatever the current Nexus was and found it too wide in the heel. I remember liking the Vapors, but for some reason which I have since regretted, went with the Supremes. I'm looking to replace the one nines, and I'm trying to figure out if my problem was a poor fit or whether I just miss the old material skates (which, would, I guess, mean I'd be in the market for a pair of older model Grafs?). I realize that fit and feel are highly personal, but I want to make sure I'm trying on everything I should when I hit my LHS/going about this right. My current skates have been a real frustration, and I want to make the most informed decision that I can. Any thoughts or suggestions welcome.

    Ribcor 70K Skates

    https://youtu.be/1gJo9S7L1-M Skates coming this summer. Finally, the pump is no more.
  7. Long time lurker finally posting for advice! I'm in the market for new skates since my current Vapor X:20 skates size 7.5D (comparable to today's x400) are starting to present issues. Specifically, the interior foam that wraps the heel and ankles are really flattening out and I'm feeling my heel rub up and down. I'm suspecting that this is the reason for the bauer bumps on my heels (slight bruise with a blister forming under the callus heel skin). I've never experienced these issues until around 2 weeks ago. I went to a store and tried the Bauer 3D Skate lab. It recommended a 7D Supreme - most of my foot measurements were medium or between narrow/medium. When I tried the Supremes on, the length was perfect but it was 'meh' in terms of comfort. Understanding that skates feel different after baking, trying on ice, and breaking in, I don't want to dismiss any option too early and would like your recommendation on what skates I should try. If I had to describe my foot, I would say it's definitely a size 7 skate in length, standard forefoot width (I recall slight pinching for a few months when I initially broke in my Vapors), low instep (to this day I've never experienced even a hint of lace bite with my Vapors), and normal arch. When I measured my foot at home, my length was around 26cm (10.2") and forefoot width 9.5cm (3.7") for a length/width ratio of ~2.75. I'm not sure whether I have a narrow, narrow/medium, or medium heel and that's the main challenge (I stupidly forgot to note this measurement from the 3D Skate Lab and it's far away so can't go back). I really want a new skate that will have tight heel lock with padding that will keep the lock for a long time. Vapors are supposed to have the tightest heels and I still ended up with heel lock issues, but that could largely be because of the skates being low end and used quite a bit over the last year (around 10 hours on ice per week). For the new skates, I definitely want a stiffer boot that will last the next 5+ years. In addition to Supreme S180, I'm considering the Jetspeed FT1, Ribcor 70K (the only other skate in 7D I tried in store and they felt comfortable, not sure because of ideal fit or because they're more cushioned/roomier than the Supremes), and the Super Tacks. I don't know how an ideal skate should even feel in-store (is it actually good for there to be some tightness?). I am a long-time Icewarehouse customer so I plan to get 2-3 skates to try and return the ones that don't fit well.

    Pro Stock Super Tacks

    Pictures: https://imgur.com/a/3qNuB and https://sidelineswap...eahockeysupply Will discount if selling them direct since other websites charge fees. Ordered these for myself but ended up getting a pair of True skates. They have never baked or used. Size 7D, size A heel. Brand new unsharpened CCM Black Steel and CCM medium arch custom insoles included. Extra reinforcement added to inside ankle and tongue for extra protection from blocking shots. True one-piece, MonoFrame 360 composite boot eliminates the need for an outsole. Seamless platform for aggressive energy transfer since they do not require the outsole, nails, glue and other materials that traditional skates are built with. The increased contact area between the foot and the skate for better feel, more control and of course more power. Lastly, the outsole-less design enables the bottom of the boot to heat mold to all sorts of unique foot shapes for a truly customized, 360-degree fit. Featherlight one-piece boot showcases the most anatomically correct fit from a CCM skate to date. This is evident throughout the boot shape, especially around the ankle bones, under the arch and across the forefoot. Super Tacks skates truly cup a players foot from underneath, on top, and on the sides. This sensation is even more apparent after the skates are heat molded too! Pro-level comfort and protection. Triple-layered Tri-Tech tongue and Total-Dri Liner. * One-piece MonoFrame 360 Carbon Composite boot * Composite Reinforced T-Form Core * Total-Dri Liner with DuraZone Abrasion Patches * Tri-Tech Thick White Felt with injected HDPE foam reinforcement * 263 holder * CCM SB Black steel runners * CCM SB +4.0 holders - Skates can be shipped sharpened if requested. Please make sure to specify the ROH you would like. - If you would like the steel profiled I have access to a Pro Sharp machine and will profile the skates for no extra cost. - I also sell Tydan steel, please add $45 if you would like Tydan steel added to the order. This will also be profiled and sharpened free of cost if requested. No trades. No swaps. Keywords: Bauer Vapor Supreme Nexus JetSpeed FT1 Easton Mako 1x 1s 1n
  9. Custom made CCM 70K's, SR size 9.5. $300 (will accept reasonable offers) At recommendations, my son tried retail 70K's (coming off older Jetspeeds). Had an issue with the boots and CCM made him these skates. Unfortunately, he cannot come to terms with these, as they hurt his right foot (apparently due to a past foot fracture, long story, but they guys at Pure Hockey in Cranberry TWP, PA helped us find the right boot and identify his issue with the Bauer scanning fit system...go figure). He used them only in practice 5-6 times. *Please know that both boots have been punched at the forefoot and in the arch! Bottom line, trying to get sell these, as they are just sitting around the house, as my son has moved on to CCM Tacks (and no pain). If there are any questions, let me know!
  10. I don't want whine.... but I kinda of expect white glove service when I spend $1300 on a pair of skates. The fact that Pure Hockey and True Hockey have both been terrible in regards to customer service doesn't reinforce my feelings that I made a good investment in buying skates from them. Background: There are no True Hockey "fit" shops in Washington State currently. I was traveling to NorCal for work so I went to Pure Hockey and had them perform the scans, take pictures and place the order. The order was for a pair of True skates with added shot blockers, extra tongue with metatarsal protection, Step/VH holder, and two pairs of Step Steel. Pure Hockey said the skates would be shipped to my home in Seattle, WA since I don't live local to their store. Issues/Problems: The first scan done at Pure Hockey was not acceptable and needed to be done a second time. However, I had to contact Pure Hockey to check if the first scan was sufficient. It was then that they said True Hockey asked for a new scan. Since I was only in town for 48 hours it's likely they would not have told me they needed a new scan until after I left the state. Good thing I followed up. After the order was placed Pure Hockey went radio silent on me. No email. No calls. Nothing. I had to personally contact True Hockey to make sure they got the scans and verify the order details. True verified everything and said the skates were going into production to be built. Following up with True Hockey on the status I was told that the skates were done and shipped two days prior! Wait!? What!? How come True Hockey or Pure Hockey didn't tell me? If you are selling a premium product it would be good to have an email that says "Your skates are on their way! Welcome to the true Hockey family." Something. Anything... just send me some communication so I know you didn't take my money and fall off the face of the earth. At least make me feel like I mean something until after I get the product. Then you can throw me away. Perhaps True Hockey can learn from Apple on how to accomplish making consumers feel like we mean something. I have gone to shady used car dealerships who paid more attention to me to "get the deal closed." True Hockey would not give me the shipping information and told me to speak with Pure Hockey. Pure Hockey referred me back to True Hockey. I was passed back and forth before they finally told me "I do apologize for the miscommunication and misunderstanding regarding the tracking of your order. We could not provide you with the tracking number as there is more than one single order being delivered to the store with the associated tracking number." Ok, wait... What? Who gives a shit if there are 1000 pairs being shipped in the same order. I want to know when my skates were shipped, the location they were shipped to and an estimated date of arrival. Excuse me for giving a shit about $1300 of hockey gear! Pure Hockey said the skates would be shipped directly to my home in Seattle, WA since I don't live near the Pure Hockey store in San Jose, CA. True Hockey said they will only ship to the retailer and would never ship to the customer and had no idea why I was told otherwise. So, why the heck was I told something totally different? There should be consistency. I was not the first order they had ever placed. When was someone going to tell me that my skates were going to NorCal and not Seattle? When they arrived in NorCal? WTF!? This goes back to my original problem. Communication. Communication. Communication. Communication. Communication. Communication. Communication. Communication. Communication. Communication. Communication. Communication........ Summary: Not hearing from Pure Hockey or True Hockey unless I reached out is a problem. If you want to sell a premium product you need to provide premium customer service. Again, I relate this to Apple. When you buy an Apple product you are paying for fit, finish but most importantly customer service. If the device malfunctions, you can rest assured someone will help you. This is why people are willing to pay the "Apple tax" for their products.

    CCM Supertacks Skates fit

    Hey Guys So I made a post before about a pair of 1S skates I had which I have now sold and just bought a pair of Supertacks. To give a little information before, I had a pair of One95's that I bought on consignment at Pro Skate in Edmonton, AB and really liked them, but they've become too soft and I'm a bigger guy at 5'10, 245 pounds (and trying to lose!!!) so I wasn't getting the response I wanted anymore. I bought the 1S', didn't fit well and were so stiff I got no forward flex which made skating in them extremely tiring. So I got these Supertacks on Saturday in Salt Lake City while I'm living in Idaho Falls, Idaho (pathetic I need to drive 3 hours just to try on skates). I wasn't planning on buying but they had 200$ off and CCM has a 30 day warranty if I don't like them, I can return them so I figured why not. After my first skate last night I have to say, that was the least painful first skate I've ever experienced! Very comfortable for a first skate... Better than after owning the 1S' for 2-3 months! Only thing that was weird for me were the edges on the skates. On my older Bauers, it felt like I was skating on rails as in I had no issue going straight or doing sharp turns as long as I dug my feet into the ice with the downside of less edge control. Last night was my first night and I had a game (probably not the best time to test them out). These Supertacks seem to be the opposite way. When I'm skating straight, I feel like my steel is digging into the ice like a stop which is slowing me down from accelerating. I also felt like I couldn't turn as sharply from when I took a turn with the puck and it ended up in a bad turnover. Also last night I seemed to be taking a large number of passes to my skates (the hockey in Idaho Falls isn't very good) and had no chance of controlling it to my stick. I also was skating backwards and as I was accepting a pass and transitioning to go forwards I stumbled pretty hard and lost control. I also went to the locker room after and noticed that the skates could have been tighter by pushing my fingers into where the eyelets are. My #1 priority is comfort (I'm not going to the show and just want to have fun) which these were great for, but the feeling of the edges scraping all the time is bugging me. I would retighten the skates every now and then and it would fix them now and then. I also have those damn CCM laces which were loosening my skates left and right because I forgot to buy wax laces for them (ordered a pair on amazon which will get here Wednesday). Could this come from the laces not being tight enough? Are there any factors to make your skates have more like my Bauers in how they ride? Do people even enjoy having their skates scrape like that and want that intentionally or is this something everyone avoids? Any tips would be appreciated and I'm sorry if I didn't explain this well because I found it tough to explain.

    Supreme 1S Skates fit?

    Hey Guys its my first time on this forum so if I'm posting on the wrong page please forgive me. So for the last while I keep using the same pair of NikeBauer One95's that I got on consignment that I got from a hockey shop I worked at in Edmonton. After using them for a long time, they started feeling really soft and I always needed to re-tie them multiple times during a skate, so I figured that it was time for a new pair. Since at the time I was very stubborn to staying as a Bauer guy and like getting top of the line equipment (I know its overkill for what I do and way too expensive), I wanted to get the Supreme 1s's since supreme pretty much keeps their boots the same in lines of fit. Anyway I bought a pair last May while living in BC knowing they were really stiff skates. When at the store, the sales associate had me try the old Jet speeds since they were on clearance. To be honest, I really liked them, but knew that I'd be thinking of the Supremes all the time if I got the CCM's. After a few months, I couldn't get fully comfortable in the skates. Usually the way I tie my skates is looser around the bottom of my feet because they ache regardless of how soft the skates are and then I try to tie the ankles up as tight as possible. In these I just can't get the ankle to where I want them and feel like I'm going to slide when I wear them. I almost felt like I'd get tired sooner when wearing the 1S' then when I was just wearing my one95's. I decided to start wearing my old one95's again and I felt like I liked them more than the 1S'. It's been a couple months since then and now my one95's are even softer and worse. I'm considering what to do when it comes to my skates. Currently, I'm living in Southeast Idaho with plans to move to Edmonton in April. My friend in Edmonton has my 1S' from when I visited and has been trying to sell them for me on kijiji, but we haven't been able to get a decent price since I paid 1100 for them after tax. I've heard that CCM has really picked up their game in skates so I've been thinking about trying on a pair of Tacks, but I don't exactly want to be tied up in two expensive pairs of skates. Any recommendations on what I should do? Is there a way to make the supremes fit better or a way to soften them quicker? I've baked them twice already but after the second bake it almost felt worse. One thing I've heard about the supremes thats a problem is the insanely stiff eye-lets. Is getting the tacks worth it since its supposed to not be as stiff and they have normal eye-lets on them? Should I give the 1S' another chance? Is there a way to solve the discomfort? Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
  13. Years ago, I agreed to a suggestion to have 1/8th" shims installed under the rear holders of my skates (Bauer MX3s) Upon having experimented with a different profile-rocker, the sharpener recommended I remove the shims as this would be "better." While I have gotten used to it, I began wondering how much I'd notice them being removed. Out of curiosity, has anyone here shimmed skates only to remove them later and prefer the feel without the shims?
  14. There doesn't seem to be a lot of feedback and reviews about the Bauer 1S skate. Curious what others think of them and what your experience has been so far.
  15. Hi Guys, I'm currently working overseas and there are no hockey shops available to try on skates. I'm 5' 10'', 200 lbs, have Flat and Wide feet. I recently got back into Ice Hockey, had my Graf Supra 705 skates shipped from New York. I'm size 9 wide on Graf 705. After 2 skates, I have intense Lace Burn on my left foot, after some research I realized I failed the pencil test on my Graf skates by a small amount. My feet measures about 27 CM length and 10.5 CM width at the widest point. There are no stores around me to try skates on. I can only order online. I have no budget. I just want to get back into ice hockey for the exercise and fun. After some preliminary research, I've realized most great brands like Graf and Easton are out of business. I was considering very seriously the Bauer Nexus 1N skates from Bauer - Size 8.5 EE? Or CCM Super Tacks EE or Ribcore EE. I would appreciate it if anyone had any advice for which Brand - Line of skates I should order and what size. I cant believe my old glory Grafs gave me lace burn to the point I had to get off the ice after 1 hour of skating. Thank you for reading this. Will *edited - I wear a size 10D in Nike running sneakers
  16. Has anyone delt with Salessportinggoods.com? Trying to fight out if it's a good site. Thanks
  17. Hey Guys, I recently got back into hockey after about 15 years off the ice. I'm 5'10, 200lbs, have flat feet and wide feet. I wear a size 10 D in Nike sneakers, my feet measures approx. 27 CM Length and 10.5 CM Width (Widest point). Arch? (where your front tendon meets the skate tongue) here's the tricky part. I recently had my Graf Ultra 705s (Size 9 wide) shipped from the States, there are no hockey stores around to try skates. I used to play in these back in Varsity and had no problems. But this time, I had intense lace burn after my second skate and had to get off the ice after 1 hour. My question is, and after doing some through research. 1. Buy Bauer Nexus 1N 8.5 D or EE. 2. Very open to hearing some thoughts about the CCM Super / Ultra Tacks, I'm just concerned about the volume of the boot. I didn't pass the pencil test for my Graf Ultra 705s, but by a small amount. Does anyone have any experience with CCM Super / Ultra tacks line? Would I get lace burn in those because of my instep? Will a 8.5 EE be sufficient for my 10.5 CM wide feet and flat feet? Thank you for reading, appreciate any insight.

    Alkali skate sizing

    Is anyone familiar with how Alkali skates are sized? I'm looking to pick up the RPD Max+ online and would prefer to get the right size the first time. I'm currently using sz 9.5 '08 Mission Boss, and sz 10 Bauer x100 for ice. I'm leaning toward the 9.5, due to how heat moldable I hear they are. I haven't found a local store that has them in stock, which makes things a little more complicated, and hockey monkey doesn't cover return shipping. Thanks guys!

    2015 bauer 1x Injected Stability Lacing System

    recently went to peranis big hockey sale looking for skates and got some bauer 1x skates for a nice price! i was looking for bauer x900 skates because of my concern about the Injected Stability Lacing System they were not in my size. I am concerned about the Injected Stability Lacing System on the skates it seems it can crack very easily. has anyone been impressed by this system? is it durable? is their any thing i can do rather than shot blockers to make sure they system doesnt break?
  20. Haven't played in a while with life getting in the way, finally have the time to try to get into skating more often. Most of this is lightly or never used. All prices include shipping and PayPal fees. Any questions or offers just post or pm Nike Bauer Pro Defender Shoulder Pads Medium $50 Never used Reebok 7K caps and biceps $20 Never used, for frankenpad projects Bauer Vapor 10 biceps $15 Never used, for frankenpad peojects Bauer NG 37.5 Premium Comp Jock Short Large $20 Used twice, washed, compression isn't for me.
  21. So I've had Graf Supra G535s for two months now, I've baked them twice, I've had them punched, I've gotten Superfeet footbeds, and I've switched the holders to TUUK LS2s. Yet, despite all these measures, I still get pain on the sides/bottom of my feet when I skate. The best way I can describe it is that it's a dull, fatiguing pain. The pain is most intense when I take off my skates, but then it goes away pretty quickly after. My best guess is that my skates are too narrow for me. They're size 7.5 regular, and they fit very snug lengthwise, but not too snug. My right foot is slightly longer than my left foot, and it slightly touches the toecap when sitting. I always feel like my heels are too far forward in the skate, like they aren't snug in the heel pockets, but they don't move around when skating. Based on this info, would you say that my skates might indeed be too narrow, or could this be another issue? Can you recommend a different pair of skates from what I've told you? I'm partial to Bauer because I like TUUK holders, but I'm open to trying something else. Thanks for reading this block of text!
  22. Given that we're all guessing here, what do you guys think. I'm in supreme one.9s now but I think one of these two will be my next skates Its been a while since the last Verbero thread, maybe some more guys have first hand experience now.
  23. I've had my Jetspeeds for a little over to months now and they've been great except for one potential issue, every time I put on my left skate and stand up I hear a click or a pop. I'll then take it off and put it back on with no noise. Could this just be a loose blade, or the insole adjusting in place? No cracks and defects are visible, so maybe it's nothing at all?

    New Skate buying 2017-18 season

    My cowlings are cracked, blades barely stuck in there... Time for new skates! I'll be playing high school level and need a solid skate that can take shots. But also have a small budget, so I need the most durable skate for the best deal. Any recommendations? I was looking at the Vaughn GX1 or 3's.
  25. Anybody currently using the latest model Jetspeed and can give me an idea of the sizing? I'm a 10D in Bauer Vapor and I found a good deal on a pair of CCM Jetspeeds which are a 9.5D. I'm curious what other peoples experience with these are. I was hoping to get to the LHS to size them out before buying but I may not be able to.
