  1. Depending on what the inside of the boot looks like you can nip off 3/4 of the prong so it will grab the inside of the boot but not damage the inside part of the skate outsole. I’ve had to do this on several occasions and never had a problem.
  2. You can do it yourself with 6/32 pronged Tee nuts and SS screws. About $20 from a hardware store. I’ve done this over two dozen times with my own skates and my sons, ice and roller. You only need 8 per skate (4 back & 4 front). They won’t feel any different and are strong. I have my own skate riveter now but my younger son (18UAA) is still using his pair mounted with Tee nuts. This will allow you to try the holders on a separate boot before committing to a full mount from a pro shop.
  3. I Put an order in last night for my son and myself. With a extra discount, ended up being $148 for the holder and an extra set of steel with shipping/pair. Plus after mounting (I have my own riveter) we will get $35 back per pair. So when it’s all said and done $113 for each pair. We both have the original ice holder. I only use mine for coaching but my son has been on them for two seasons and this will be a third. Started as a oversized 263 on a size 6 boot and we just keep moving them to the next sized boot, currently a 7.5. He is playing 18AA as a 15 Year old and the holders are holding up well. We are looking forward to using the new version.
  4. Looking at the pic. that is a significant difference in size.
  5. Medium is approximately 10.25” large is approximately 11” both are measured while mounted. The medium is on a 6.5 Reebok ribcor boot with about 3-4mm of space on the heel and toe of outsole. the large is mounted on a size 8.5 vapor 800 and covers the entire outsole.
  6. Are we talking O1 or R1? We have both versions in both medium and large
  7. I had a order of blades delivered in mid April. I’m in California and ordered through the US site.
  8. I have been in this scenario with my skates and my sons. I started with the profile and was always able to get it dialed in. My Mako, supreme and Vapors all feel the same all with different holders. For reference, The stock CXN holder and steel on the makos where perfect for me. what is the weight difference between a Mako and TF9 in a similar size?
  9. No problem. I don’t know anything about the holder sizing on makos in a 6.5. Those could be the odd size that came with 263. I assume yours were D width? I have been looking at the TF9 or TF7 for myself once I my makos are done. I had a pair of second hand VH customs in a 8.5 EE that I couldn’t get my foot in so the stock pairs interest me. I’m way past the days of needing custom made skates
  10. Merry Christmas. i liked reading you experience with the sizing of the TF9 I have also heard similar accounts. as far as the holder sizing, almost all of the skates that my sons have worn (Bauer and Reebok/CCM) in a 6 - 6.5D have all been mounted on 254s out of the box. 263 holders were mounted on the Bauer’s starting with the size 7. my mako 2 in 8EE have 272 and my makos in 9 have 280s. holder sizing seems to be consistent.
  11. My sons (14,17) and I have the Nasty and the Reign LT shafts in Polar Fiber and we like them a lot. I’m not familiar with the Stealth CX so I can’t compare the two shaft shapes but these are as good as anything I’ve ever used. My garage is full of everything from Easton and Bauer to Warrior/Innovative and TPS. The Base shafts are very similar if not the same as the early Warrior/Innovative shafts. Makes sense since the guy behind Base is the same guy who sold Innovative to Warrior.
  12. That would be great. I’m in Southern California, between San Diego and Los Angeles.
  13. We have two pairs (Med & Lrg) of R1s. Both pairs are 76-76-80-80 as recommended and neither are that close. I assume you’re running same set up on medium or large?
  14. Usually just a chunk of glue. If you remove the blade or end plug it will fall out. Or heat the end where the particle is. If it’s glue it will melt and you won’t hear the rattle.
