  1. I managed to snag a NCAA pro return pair this summer and have been on them roughly twice a week. Profiled the same as my Black steel and Ti-Pulse and in my experience it totally lives up to the hype of being easier on the body. - Pros Prior I was developing left hip issues to the point i was missing games and these have allowed me to stay on the ice. My right (sugerically repaired) knee has also responded better My friends have noticed my skating has been better as well. Honestly I don't know any difference in speed or agility but I think it's possible because my hip/knee just feels better. I'm 40 now so anything that can help ease the body/joints is a huge benefit to me. - Cons For me is I do feel like the blacksteel has better glide so I might try the DLC set next given and hope it provides bit more glide. Yes I'm aware this sounds like an infomercial but I'm sold on it. And If they wanna give me a deal on the DLC version I'll gladly accept 🙂
  2. Yep Bauer wasn't stupid when they released the Vapor ADV for $369 (cdn) few years ago.
  3. They are just G3 i have no idea how he still has NXG paint job. I wonder if Bauer still making them or he has infinite supply stocked up.
  4. Thanks Vet88! Thats exactly the pain; it's so sharp and immediate that it must be a nerve. Good to know that it can be relieved. I do remember skates that gave me this issue have more shaped heal (Vapor, Grafs etc).
  5. Not totally out of the picture (since i hear new revision is lighter) as but I wanted a lighter less clunkier feeling skate and wanted to try and see what the new stuff is like.
  6. Trying bunch of new skates lately (coming from Trues > RBZ > Makos) and I noticed in particular AS1 and sometime in the Jetspeed that I could get very sharp pain in the back of the heel when i put my weight forward over my toes. Is this a question of heel pocket not being deep enough or wrong shape for me? Can the heel pockets be punched out in these new one piece boots? I do have slight bauer bumps in my heels btw.
  7. I guess it's save to assume Step steel will come in the next gen of skates? I want to get pair of 80k but I'd be cheesed if they release them in a few weeks after i got mine.
  8. I do the same. My P28 sticks are about 1 inch shorter than my PM9 curved sticks. I have found with my William Nylander pro sticks i can go back up 1 inch, same with a Justin Williams P28 stick I had. It's due to the lie angle imo.
  9. Is he finally going to switch away from the OG supertacks graphics?
  10. i had my CL's profiled 30/50 on a cag machine and i can say the difference was almost none to me. In the Mako's the stock profile i felt was right at home. Would you have a recommendation if i want to swap to the new LS holders? The idea of having extra steel on hang is the reason i'd want them.
  11. i'm probably SOL b/c these were purchased used online (this is the risk i took) so i'm looking for repair options. I'd have S17s (great performance but not durability) before and didn't last long so i didn't wanna risking paying full retail again.
  12. can you post a pic if you don't mind? i noticed that the liner is has pulled away/seperated/bubbled up from the padding from the ankle bone to the top of the footbed. Anyone have any ideas on how to repair this?
  13. how much did they charge for the customs? and did you get a choice of which holder you wanted or you had to put it on afterwards?
  14. If any GTA members wanna see the RBZ skate in person Duke's has one on display not in a case. Nice skate seems similar weight and fit to the Crazylites. New steel is mirror like.
  15. i've had or demo'd probably 10 different skates in the last 2 years.... unless the apx2 can fit my 907 instep with s17 ankle lock i can't wait for christmas 2013, keep up the great work guys!
