  1. I have given Superfeet (both yellow and carbon) a good testing over the last 6 months or so and they don't seem to be an upgrade for me. I originally started using them due to arch pain in new skates and having a semi low arch, combined with a wider forefoot. Just trying out footbeds to deal with general issues with fit. To summarize why I think they aren't working for me, it basically feels like I am skating on my arches and find it difficult to get my weight on the balls of my feet. It (feels like) it takes too much ankle flex to get into a position where i can use the front half of my blade when maneuvering. Heels and apex of radius are readily accessible. I'll admit, some of this might be technique (being back into the sport after a long many ears away) but I've had enough skates in to where I want to perhaps try something else. I'd like to know if anyone can chime in regarding balance point and the possibility of moving the radius apex fwd/back might help feeling better balanced over my skates. When I drop two eyelets I can flex my ankles enough to get things feeling ok but I lose a lot of lateral stability and my upper ankles start knocking around in the top opening (Tippiness). If I tighten them down and really lock my ankle in, things get much worse and Im basically skating on my heels or getting sever lace bite pressure when trying to get balanced/neutral. Im in newer Tacks model 9070. Stock radius on aftermarket hyperglildes. I've experimented with shimming under heel and forefoot (within the boot) trying to slightly change my foot position inside the boot but doesn't really seem to help that much. Walking around the house it seems it feels slightly more natural when i use the stock footbed (pretty thin) with a second layer of stock footbed under my forefoot (slightly less than half). Would moving the balance point /apex back a little ways help me get over the balls of my feet easier? Essentially is this the same as getting a fwd pitch or is there a difference? My intuition might be wrong but I don't think shaving down the toe of the skate is going to help...all else being equal wouldn't that make matters worse? (Front of blade would be even further out of reach if balance point of blade on boot remained the same?) I'm thinking something like an 11' radius but just slightly moved back... .I'm relatively new to all this. Forgive me if I sound like a dope. If anyone can see a clearer picture of what might help me...I'm all ears. Thanks
