  1. 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.
  2. Hey guys, I´m having lace bite problems again, I thought that with the new skates (alkali rpd team ), the problem would be solved, but unfortunately it´s not, Im using gel pads, bandages, and changed the lacing pattern, but still my tendon hurts after each game, and cannot play more than once , maybe twice a week . It seems that y ankle/tendon is just too big for the boot, here are some pics of the pencil test Those were took sitting with all the weels on te floor and my leg straigt, If I flex, things get worse I bought the alkalis after reading some posts and some recomendations, I think the skate size is ok , my thumb rub the cup if stand straight, or with the skates unlaced, and dont while in hockey stance, They could be 1/2 size bigger (wich is weird cos acording to the chart I should be using an 8 size, and these are 8.5) but I´m not sure it will help that much, actually I have a pair of bauers that are 2 sizes bigger and they still hurt, the only advantage is that the have one more eyelet on the top, and that helps aliviating the preassure in the lower ones, but its really hard to skate with them , the boot is too loose, This is how they fit : I thought of buying 1/2 size bigger alakalis, but not sure if that will add that much volume to the boot, . Mission boot seems similar to alkali´s no sure if it´ll help ... Is there any other brand with a deeper boot ? , unfortunately theres no real hockey store where I live, only skate shops that just have a few bauer and mission models and ussually not all sizes, so I cannot go and try. Any other Ideas ? I´d really apreciate your coments Thanks !
  3. What kind of lace bite protection do the g3 ultra and the supra 703 provide? around 2011 models, it looks like an old school leather and felt tongue, is there a hard plastic insert inside?

    Frustrating Lace Bite!

    I know there are some posts about this, but I'd like to try to figure something out. I grew up playing hockey, but I was goal 90% of the time. I started really hittin it hard again a few months ago and I got some RBK 12k skates just to pick it back up again. Gave them to my brother after I started experiencing bad lacebite (and the skates just kinda sucked). I picked up the CCM CLs and i absolutely love how they skate, but the lacebite continues to be incredibly aggravating and sometimes debilatating. Perhaps the skates are not deep enough? I did the pencil test and the top of my foot does touch the pencil around eyelits 3 and 4. I'm gonna bring my skates to the lhs to see if theres anything they can do to fix them, but perhaps it's just my foot. I'm 6'5 220 pounds and I have a decent arch. A friend of mine told me that Graf makes some pretty deep skates..would this be something that I should look into? Any sort of help is great. Thanks!
