  1. People will probably disagree with me but as you said, I’d play around with profiles long before I’d do a holder swap. There isn’t enough difference in size or amount of steel on the ice at any given time to justify it imo. a good profiler could look at your current blades, get a general idea of the balance point and ice contact you like and get you something similar to what you’ve been using. it will likely take longer to adjust to the boots than the blades anyway.
  2. Stock I’d say Aero, otherwise CP94 or X844 Pro are probably close
  3. Dumb question perhaps but did you hold one up to that other steel to see where the discrepancy lies?
  4. Rock'n Green is a great soak for smelly gear https://rockingreen.com/collections/active-wear-detergent/products/platinum-active-wear-two-pack Gear Halo pods are a must for skates/bag https://www.amazon.com/Gearhalo-Sports-Deodorizer-Pods-Stops/dp/B071XWM1JH/ref=asc_df_B071XWM1JH/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=693295483335&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=2094030929703982636&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9018838&hvtargid=pla-493626010011&psc=1&mcid=8f4adae2dad133b69a158a6ab12060eb&gad_source=1 These two sprays are good for inbetween skates, one hockey specific, one not https://www.icewarehouse.com/Beeks_Reek_Out_Pro/descpage-RO32.html?_gl=1*5rtjc*_up*MQ..&gclid=CjwKCAjwvvmzBhA2EiwAtHVrb2L3bgDP_LZ3ow8mWLBq3CCkmwQdCjusQQXk8KtiLL49-Qs3skiVtBoCynEQAvD_BwE https://www.seventhgeneration.com/disinfectant-spray-eucalyptus-spearmint-thyme-scent
  5. If one is a 6.5 Wide it might have 263 holders, or if they're pro skates, they might have come from the custom department with 263, even 272 i suppose
  6. Some one who knows what they’re doing could pretty well eyeball and put a straight edge on the blades to make sure they aren’t bent. If all they’re doing is replacing factory rivets and not drilling new holes it should be pretty straightforward.
  7. The pictures make it look more similar to a P46 than a W28
  8. You bought an LX Pro, and the taper will be a dead giveaway when it arrives. But on the plus side they’re damn fine sticks. Nicer than Novium imo
  9. A few of the resale sites have Noviums (purportedly), you may try asking one of them for the codes? A glance at the photos might also help you decipher if it’s legit, the concave taper should be pretty evident.
  10. You could try Currex footbeds also with a rebake. I’ve found the firm ankles under the superfeet weren’t for everyone.
  11. Where did you buy them, and why isn’t that store handling this for you? (If it’s a warranty issue, they should be)
  12. I don't need an absurd color way but I hope they do something unique. the Yeti and Mammoth names being tossed around are pretty good
  13. Pickups from some recent travels. Franklin Vipers pants Easton Pro pants navy 6K Pro M/L shoulders and a full family photo
  14. https://www.sourceforsports.ca/products/ccm-jetspeed-control-senior-hockey-shoulder-pads-2023-source-exclusive check the JetSpeed SMU series from CCM, particularly the Control. It had some similar features to the CL and are much easier to find.
  15. The one consideration I’d have is the jump in stiffness, sounds like you’re willing to jump up in half sizes. I was always a fan of graduating up in stiffness gradually for kids. He may see more immediate benefit from the True 7 line, depending on his ankle strength. But both should provide some benefit.
