  1. Yes, they are stiffer laterally. There is multiple option available; retail models, a Pro model, and Full Custom. Yes.
  2. Maybe I overlooked if he was going with a larger holder?
  3. A good shop that specializes in profiling would be able to fix that without swapping holders.
  4. Agreed MAX is taller, light, and stiffer. Wrap is about the same. The stiffness has been adjusted as they feel stiffer laterally, but forward flexion has been increased for better range of motion.
  5. I think the sizing has been adjusted to reflect the same as other brands.
  6. Facings on them are significantly different allowing more flexion and range of motion. Boot fits tighter than the current TF design due to the change in the toe cap assembly. Tendon guard is more flexible. Skate is lighter.
  7. The 13" is more like a 13.5" and the 14" is more like a 14.5" Basically, the new Supreme gloves fit about .5" bigger.
  8. My only complaint with the 90K is CCM used a TPU outsole instead of a carbon outsole as they did with the 70K and 80K.
  9. CCM XS holders have slightly more pitch, almost indiscernible. However, the CCM XS holder is significantly stiffer than Bauer LS Edge, which might be what you are feeling. Give it a little more time, and then if you feel too far forward, get the pivot point adjusted.
  10. I know a few people that have them and claim they are very good. I have not personally used them myself, though.
  11. The more you use them, the more you will realize their benefits. I cannot go back to regular steel at this point. I have the new TRUE Catalyst Pro demo pair, and when I tried to use them, I felt like a baby giraffe on the ice. The boot is impressive, and the Shift Max holder feels excellent, but they need Flare.
  12. Those sticks are significantly different. Shaft shape, kick point, blade design, weight. All of these things could influence stick handling and catching passes.
  13. The end product of Sparx is not nearly as nice when compared to sharpening on a Wissota, Blackstone, Blademaster, or other machine that uses ceramic wheels.
  14. I decided to send back the AS 2001 ALLPRO-SC as I already have an SSM unit which accepts SSM, Blackstone and ProSharp profiles. No need to have a $14K unit that can only profile when I already have a profiling machine. Regardless, I am disappointed in both ProSharp and Bauer. I guess I expected too much.
  15. Yes, they removed the US link hence why I had to link to the EU website.
  16. ProSharp machine uses a weight, #5 in the diagram below, which keeps even pressure on the blade as you are sharpening. I think Sparx are nice machines, I just wish they had a better finish.
  17. This is correct. I can't provide specific details; otherwise, I will get my hands slapped, but I can share there are technically two "custom" skates options.
  18. The RIbcor is a slightly softer boot thus when baked it will open up a bit more than the Jetspeed. If you are like me, between a D and EE, basically an E width, you would want to go with a D or regular width skate. When you bake it you can put pressure on the boot to expand the forefoot slightly. This is assuming though that you have enough volume in the skate. If you don't have enough volume then nothing you can do will accommodate the extra width you might need. Remember, your foot is not 2 dimensional, it's 3 dimensional and length/width is only 2D.
  19. I dont think any of the current CCM skates (100K/FT4 Pro/AS-V pro) have a difference in boot pitch since they are all built on an initially similar last with only the foams and shell composition being different. The AS3 Pro might be different though.
  20. I tend to stay away from injected eyelets. When players request the Hyperlite skates I recommend they order custom and get standard eyelets unless they are entirely sold on the injected eyelets.
