Pros: Helped improve my game, Quality, Easy to use, Features, light
This is my 3rd pair of skates, I had a pair of CCM Tacs back in the 90's, a pair of CCM Tacs (used) this past year until I shattered a runner, and I just bought these skates a few weeks ago. Hands down these are the lightest, most comfortable skates I've ever had the pleasure of putting on my feet. I'm still a novice and didn't want to go crazy on the cost seeing as how I'm in my mid thirtys and just getting into the game and have no interest (or chance) in going PRO. I wanted a solid middle of the road skate, something that wouldn't break the bank but something I wouldn't out grow as my skill levels increased. I think this on is a BIG winner. When I went to the Total Hockey in Downers Grove IL the salesman pointed to these as a good option. When I first put them on they felt good with two minor pressure points at the ankel. I keep them on for a bit before the salesman suggested that he bake them for a bit to see if the pressure points went away, they did. I have been on them for a very short time and I haven't even felt like I had to break them in. Out of ALL the gear that I have bought from Total Hockey these skates are by far the best purchase I have made!!! If I find anything changes for the better or worse with these skates I will update you. I would strongly recommend these skates at this point in time.
