    Are these still available? Any photos?
  2. Yeah, I never cared for the Grafs. I felt like I lost a lot of power in the stride. I didn't realize the Bauers put you on your heels without the shims.
  3. Do the CCMs have a more aggressive pitch to the holders (like Grafs)?
  4. Years ago, I agreed to a suggestion to have 1/8th" shims installed under the rear holders of my skates (Bauer MX3s) Upon having experimented with a different profile-rocker, the sharpener recommended I remove the shims as this would be "better." While I have gotten used to it, I began wondering how much I'd notice them being removed. Out of curiosity, has anyone here shimmed skates only to remove them later and prefer the feel without the shims?
  5. Perhaps, using a longer radius is a bit more stable with a larger radius like 12' or 13' when using a shallow hollow like 3/4"? I have seen people claim Gretzky used a 1/2" but only a 7' radius. Paul Coffey used an 1" or higher, but I have no idea what his radius was. The correlation between the hollow used and the radius must be fairly significant. Mentioning only one of the two aspects seems to be leaving a lot out of the equation.
  6. For those of you who have done experimenting using different hollows without much change in body weight: how much of an impact have you found in the relationship between your body weight and the hollow selected? There is the oft-heard axiom that the heavier players should consider a shallower hollow, but I wonder to what extent. Is a solid skater at 165lbs really going to be floundering around if a 3/4" or 1" hollow is used instead of a 1/2"? Thank you, Seth
