  1. Found some. The blue and silver AS5-Pro's were the ones I was looking for. The skate game is strong with this one.
  2. Very funny (as a Habs fan especially), but not what I'm looking for.
  3. Anybody have any photos of Matthews custom AS5-Pro's?
  4. I really don't think it's the steel. Probably profile and/or sharpening. I've used many types of steel and Step Black is my go to. They are as good as pretty much anything.
  5. Thanks @PBH, much appreciated. This will help me make a more informed decision on my next pair of wheels. I'm surprised that they don't use carbon fiber on the top Jetspeed model.
  6. Not saying I don't trust you because that was what I was thinking was probably the case, but how do you know this? What is your source? Also, would it be possible to essentially duplicate the Jetspeed shape (last) on a Tacks boot? I found my custom Jetspeeds were lower volume in the heel/ankle/Achilles area and I like that.
  7. That's exactly what I'm trying to find out. I may have to contact the rep that took care of my last customs. He did tell me that Jetspeeds could be made as stiff, but I'm not sure how.
  8. I was just looking through the newest CCM catalog and noticed that the material used for the shells of the FT4 Pro and 100K skates (Reinforced Fiberglass Material) are different than the material for the AS3 Pro's (Carbon Composite). I have had custom FT1s and AS1s for my last two pairs of skates and an trying to figure out what is next for me. I preferred the fit profile of the Jetspeeds, but I definitely like the construction and stiffness of the Tacks better. I was told that you can get the Jetspeeds with a Tacks stiffness (215). I'm wondering if you can get the Jetspeeds made with the same carbon composite material though or if it's just a stiffer RFM composite. Does anyone have the insider info on that?
  9. I don't mind spending big money on my ice skates (I have total custom AS1s), but I'm not as into roller hockey. Really looking for something mid-range to train with off-ice during this COVID-19 situation. I pulled the trigger on some Bauer Vapor XR600 skates. They arrive tomorrow. Can't wait to give them a go. It's been a few years since I've been on inlines.
  10. I am well acquainted with the fit of ice skates, but not with inline skates. There are a few other companies and lines that I am not familiar with. I am looking for a medium to narrow fitting boot with lower volume. What skate line would you folks, suggest?
  11. Are the tongues moving towards the outsides (lateral) of your ankles? This is likely happening because of overpronation and/or a poor fit. It's pretty common actually. Not much you can do about it other than strenghten your foot muscles.
  12. I personally love the crisp, precise feel of composite. I wouldn't for a second think of going back to a wood blade that will get soggy and split after several ice times. I think if you adjust to the feel of composite and have good hands that they will only become better with composite because it is lighter and has a more direct, precise feel. Enough about how wood sticks have good feel. That's so early 2000's.
  13. I love core shorts. I personally like wearing mine with an old fashioned shock doctor jock (on top) and a garter belt. I find it works better that way. Core shorts are supposed to be very tight. I think wearing jock shorts under them would be terrible uncomfortable. Over maybe, but not under.
  14. I figured someone might call me out on that. I watched the video of Zac Bell from Always Hockey using one and the Christian Hanson one from their site. Plus, the weights are very light. I like light sticks. There's almost nothing lighter than the X1X other than the Vapor ADV and the Fantom. I am impressed by that. I think I'm gonna pull the trigger. If they are even as good as the Sher-wood Rekker line (which I think are currently the best bang for buck) then they are a good deal. I will let you guys know how it goes.
