  1. I appreciate the feedback. I prefer the tacks stiffness not for any medical reasons it was what i was first introduced to and grown accustomed to. Reason i tried a ribcore was the bit wider forefoot and toebox room, to avoid the tacks toebox from painfully rubbing my right foots big toe against the side. My experiment didnt work and thats ok. Then my local shop showed me a pair of tacks vector plus(2022) sz 8, the rounder toebox didnt put pressure on my big toes callus. My 9060s still hold up till i choose an upgrade. And the whole low, meduim foot sizing thing was a factor too.
  2. Ive skated in ccm tacks for almost 6 years (i have a medium volume foot and instep) i need the stiff boot for ankle stability. I got a cheap pair of ribcore 88k to try out for a bit more toebox room, which is a low volume skate, and with 1 bake treatment, i had to crank down on the laces to get any ankle support. I stepped onto the ice this past tuesday and couldnt skate! I had floppy ankle support, and i felt like i was slushing thru sand i almost fell down. So there obviously is a performance difference between the two models. I can fly and stop on a dime with my tacks 9060s, but the ribcores were horrible! Mind you i play defence.
