I bought mine in 1997. I am still using them now. For the first 3 years I was in high school. So for the first three years I was wearing them 3-4 times a week. After that it has been 1-2 times a week. Guess what. They are still going strong. I did have to replace the blade holder once due to a puck off the foot. I have also turned these back and forth every year to play roller hockey in the summer here in St. Louis. They look like cr@p now but are still as effective as the day I bought them. Now I have so many holes on the bottom from changing them for 12 years its time to start looking for new pair. I will try on some of the newer Grafs, but most likely I will find a new pair of 703's. Buy em'!
Pros: Lightweight, stiff boot, and durable. The fact you can choose widths make a big difference for those of us with wide feet.
Cons: Only if your a cheapskate. Buck up boys you get your moneys worth here.
