  1. Yea I'd say my caps were punched a couple mm. Thats all I needed. Not sure how far they can go.
  2. I had the toecaps of my Vapors punched out using the @customskateworks punch at one of my local Total Hockey stores. It worked great, highly recommended. The punch was able to get really deep into the cap.
  3. The CCM insoles may support your arch without lifting the heel. Might be worth a shot.
  4. I had a similar issue with my jetspeeds. I ended up removing the superfeet because they lifted my heel too high. I also rebaked. These 2 changes improved the situation.
  5. For "fun" I put together this animation in an attempt to show the potential fit differences between the X700 (tech mesh) and X800 (curv). There may be little value in it but hey, at least I learned how to make an animated gif. Anyone try both and feel much of a difference?
  6. dkmiller, Are you still in the x90s or have you moved into something else? My beloved 7.0's are in need of replacement. Tech mesh x700's seem like a step down from x7.0's and I'm nervous about moving into the x800 curv boot. Wondering about peoples experiences moving from tech mesh to curv. Thx!
  7. MacInnis with a QRL in Blues colors. Think he'll unleash one from the point on poor little Darren Pang during the alumni game? Me neither.
  8. I don't recognize those skates. Next Gen Jetspeeds?
  9. I went from Vapor x7.0 size 8D to Jetspeed 300 size 7D. I got my Jetspeeds profiled +1 to better match the pitch of the Vapors. From the ankle bone down the Jetspeeds fit absolutely perfectly. They feel better than the vapors. But, I prefer the Vapors from the ankle up. The vapors have better lateral ankle support while still allowing forward flex. It took me 5 or 6 games to figure out that if I skip the second eyelet in the Jetspeeds, I can get decent forward flex while still having some lateral support. All in all, I really like the Jetspeeds and recommend them.
  10. I wear a size 7 CCM Jetspeed. The medium superfeet carbon pros fit well after a trim. Its more about the way they fit your heel than the length though.
  11. Once you get a chance to skate in them, let us know what you think. I recently made the switch from Vapor x7.0 to Jetspeed 300. I'd like to see if our experiences are similar.
  12. I just bought a pair of skates from one of my local Total Hockey stores and I can tell you it was great experience. In about 2 hours, I was able to try on 2 or 3 different models from both Bauer and CCM. The baking and sharpening was free. This is convenience that only brick and mortar stores can provide. The employees were knowledgeable and patient. This has been my experience with all 3 St. Louis stores. In fact, Joe from Custom Skateworks is (was?) a TH employee. Joe met me at a local TH of my choice and punched out the toe caps in my vapors a few years ago using one of his awesome boot punch machines. He spent almost an hour working with me and then refused to charge me. TH also sponsored the First Stride program which allowed local kids including my daughter to try hockey for the first time on Scottrade Center's ice. We will both never forget that experience and TH provided all the gear for free. So, from my experience there is no evidence of a "toxic corporate culture" at TH. Quite the opposite. Total hockey has been nothing but an asset to local hockey here in St. Louis and I'm quite upset that there exists the possibility of them going out of business.
