Great Comfort & Balance
Blade wasn't straight as a result of improper blade holder - boot alignment
I had purchased Bauer Vapor skates previous to the Grafs and found that they were lightweight and fast. However after 2-3 skates with them, I was not able to walk due to their uncomfortable boot. After re-baking them again and again I still could not get any kind of comfortable fit. Then I tried the Graf 703's. It was the best decision I ever made on hockey equipment. They were immediately comfortable and every bit as fast as the Bauers. I didn't find out until later that the boot and blade holder were slightly askew and the blade would never be 100% straight. It has made very little difference. This is my sixth season with them and estimate that they've been used over 500 times and the boot is still in awesome condition. I will buy Grafs again no matter what.
