  1. yeah - that is awful. No way a new skate should break band like that.
  2. I am the same weight, but I do not think the skates themselves are that stiff right? I just remember having this issue on my old inline skates, but have not experienced that since. In my inline skates basically once it happened it just kept getting worse. My stride is better now too and I do not really fold forward as I used to on inline skates.
  3. Skate is not stiff enough for your weight and it bent the wall. I had this happen to cheap inline skates.
  4. hey guys, Highly recommend this device for skate drying. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001J4HQ76/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  5. Some tips on the tongue - you can push the tongue out and slide the laces under it for the last 3 holes. This is what I use to lace up. I also had to use a heat gun to loosen up a bit the wrap of the skate so I can get my foot in. I tied my skates a bit too hard on the first bake.
  6. I use these for ski boots and true skates. Seems to work well, but I never ran a comparison with or without.
  7. Someone needs to leak the details - waiting till July is too long!!
  8. Exactly, a lot of nonsense in this thread. The study is clear in its methods and some helmets are clearly dog shit. Preventing concussions is not an easy job and not exact science, but doing a study like this and validating some of these helmets is a great start. They use clear definitions and clear data points that you can measure. Saying that they do not apply in real world is nonsense.
  9. What are some advantages of the CCMs over trues?
  10. I know it has like 0 impact on the ice, but just hate the click lol
  11. I would tie them very loose. especially near the top, because if you get them too tight as they are very moldable after the bake, you will have a hard time getting your foot inside of them - since they do not move. Also get a shoehorn. As a Side note - anyone have issues with clicking noise from the holder and the runner? I cant seem to get rid of the blade movement.
  12. Got my True here are some pictures after about 12-14 games: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1q9ZsUlaNzR8PKoO-dFKvCvsA_Dfzp8V1?usp=sharing Issues: I watched and read all the comments/videos in here and STILL I over tightened my laces on the skates on the 1st bake. Hurt so bad trying to get into them since there is ZERO flex of the boot. Re baked them and it got better, but I had to use a heat gun and spot heat the 4th lace from the top and bend it out. Also, got two tongues and the shot blocker tongue I think is too thick for my liking. I also found out that I have a muscle bump on my right foot that was having issues getting into the skates - once heat spotted the area - getting in is not an issue. Comfort: The skate came correct size, my foot-bed is exact size as my old skates. I can just graze with my toe the toebox, but after i heel kick - no longer can touch it. I have zero foot movement and zero negative space. I felt really weird with the tongue being in the toebox at first. Moved it out and it felt empty - so now I am like 70% tongue in my toebox. Really like that feeling now as my toes have a bit of wiggle but still feel locked in place and tucked. Protection: I got shot blockers built in and can say that I have lost all fear about blocking shots. I mean 100% worth the shot blockers.(i used to wear plastic wraps) Performance: You do feel the tilt at first but I got used to it really fast and love the absolute solid boot. I do not think this is a "TRUE" thing but anytime you use a stiff boot you get that awesome performance. Biggest gains are from the stiff boot and zero negative space. Looks: I almost went with CCM jetspeeds customs just cuz of the looks - BUT true has now grown on me hardcore. I love the low key look. Overall: I hated the tongue in my toebox at first, but really liked that I can adjust it to the way I like it (did not even know I like having the tongue in my toeboex -sounds dirty but yeah). Had tons of pain getting into them after 1st bake - had to heat spot to fix it. Overall - love them. It is really awesome to get into the boot and just feel the comfy grip that the skate takes over your foot. Most comfortable skate I have had yet. Might get superfeet/bauer plates to avoid arch bending but has not been an issue for me. Note - I never had any comfort issues with any of the cheaper skates I have owned (Bauer/Easton). Only got True because I can afford it and needed new skates. We have about 7 guys in True on my team now over last 6 months.
  13. After reading 189 pages of this thread - it seems clear that who ever fits you makes a big difference and true needs a better tracking status website. It would be great to get info on your scan with stats about the skate you are getting... measurement of your foot (lengths and width) that scan picked up, expected holder size, boot weight..etc - all should be available online after the scan is received and updated based on progress of the build. One day.... Since we cannot speak to the person making the skate, it is sometimes worrisome to get scanned and pray the boot comes back awesome. I can only compare this to a suit fitting and while that is done in person I have had to make edits to my suit plenty of times after it comes back until its perfect. Having said that - I cannot wait for mine to come so I can joint he cult.
