Switch from 238 to 246 holder Help

Recommended Posts

Hello,  I am in the market to get new custom skates with Vh.  I have a smaller then normal foot so I have always skated in jr skates with short holders.  However I have learned to skate in them very well.  But. Now is my chance to get VH custom skates and have them install a 246'holder.  I am afraid it may inhibit my agility. However still a 246 holder isn't that much bigger.  I am about 5'6 150 lbs.  skating for 30 years. I am wondering if the 246 holder is going to take me to the next level speed and power, or is it just going to slow me down.  Let me know what you guys think.

I've switched back and forth between 263 and 272 multiple times.  I didn't really notice any difference.  I guess it probably has more to do with the profile you skate on, along with your mechanics.
