I just bought the skates a few weekds ago and have no complaints. They are 10x's better thatn my old CCM's. They are very light and have good control. I only spent $180 on mine and think ther are a great bang for the buck. My buddy spent twice as much on some CCM's and his feet are killing him. This is a strong buy in my book. (read more)

Whoever said these are for non-competitive use only is 100% wrong. These were top of the line skates a few years ago and still are great skates.

I'm looking for a pair of XXXX's now. (read more)

I have owned a pair of Bauer Vapor XX for the last hockey season, and other than price I cannot fault them. They have great ankle support, and are very comfortable. The light-speed blade is just amazing to skate in, it is this best blade in the world, and is only equaled by the latest graf blade. Also these skates are very strong, I have been hit by a puck many times in the ankle and yet these skates are still in shape, and my ankle is not broken (yet!).
Some people think these skates just... (read more)
