  1. But they have X-ribs, so they must be super awesome!
  2. XS is a mechanical lock, so I doubt that it is spontaneously loosening a couple clicks. I have no evidence, but I suspect that people are inadvertently turning the dial a click or two when handling the skates. I personally prefer the XS holder, but would not have any issues skating on the Edge. I don't really think one is noticeably better than the other.
  3. 80K can be found on clearance for $200 CAD less than the 90K. I know which one I would get.
  4. Ah, I see what you're talking about. I think I misunderstood because you initially referred to it as a "flex notch. Although, having looked at pics of the Microns, their notch had the same effect of spacing the lacing. Micron 10-90 https://imgur.com/a/e9pNNCa
  5. My Micron Mega 10-90 skates had that notch, and I think it's a big reason why they were so comfortable to skate in.
  6. Is Suzuki wearing the unreleased Super Ultra Light Hypersonic Supreme 8000S?
  7. Chabot switching from Tacks to True with XS holders; interesting.
  8. Alright, I owe @Hills an apology for doubting his take on the sizing of these things. I tried them on when they first came out and thought they were fairly close to standard sizing, (maybe a touch bigger). Went to the store today because I was going to buy a pair of TF9. I'm a 7.5/7.75 in Bauer and CCM. I put a 7R TF9 on my foot unbaked and my forefoot was swimming in the boot. Length was pretty good, so I know they'd be too long post bake. I think if these things fit you properly, you must wear no pants and have nephews named Huey, Dewey and Louie!
  9. Do you need any employees in the GTA, who's sole responsibility is to test skates?
  10. @PBH I wish you were 7.5L and 7.75R so I could take all your castoffs LOL. Being a total skate nerd, I'm very jealous!
  11. If I'm understanding your idea correctly, then the blade would flex too much because it would only be attached to the holder at the ends. The blade needs to slot into the holder somehow to give some resistance to flex.
  12. Not to sidetrack the thread too much, but society seems to have all but abandoned the idea of civil discourse. If you think someone's opinion is dumb, listen to what they have to say, evaluate it, then either modify your own opinion or don't. No need to tell them you think they're an idiot.
  13. Bauer tried aluminum first. Look up Lightspeed Fusion runners. They were a disaster.
  14. Um, I think you must have missed the /s at the end of my post. To be clear....the material with the strength of steel that I'm referring to is "steel".
  15. I don't think hockey players respond differently than any other consumer base. To use your PC building example, I know plenty of folks that fall for "this new Nvidia card can run Duke Nukem at 4 gazillion FPS". So they spend $2k on a video card to play DOTA or something similar. Some people will spend thousands on designer clothes thinking it will make them more attractive, when in reality they're often made in the same factory in Bangladesh that made the Walmart knockoff.
