Got these in the mail yesterday. My first pair of Grafs. Wore RBK 7K before and, while they were OK, I could never quite get too comfortable in them. Plus, I found them a bit too hard for outside edge work, even with loosen tops and skipped top eyelets.
I had the Grafs sharpened and decided to forego the bake (at least for now), wanting to break them in the old-fashioned way. Then, I went to a public skate.
The comfort of the boot out of the box is incredible. After almost two hours of pretty intense skating, I have no pain, no blisters, no hot spots!
Also, I was a bit worried about the aggressive forward pitch of the holders, but I rather enjoyed it, actually. The skates appear to be rather maneuverable. I think I might even wear them in my beer league game this Sunday.
