    Since years the classic old school Graf 703 (resp. the 704 which is identical apart from the material used)...fits me perfect although with the last two I bought I have some problems with insufficent padding at the ankle (hurts unless I put some piece of foam cushion in...not a severe problem).
    A very good skate I think.

    I've had my pair of Bauer Impact 75 for probably 7 years now. They're a little flimsy and long overdue for replacement.

    And now they have been. Can't believe how much lighter these Eastons are than the old Bauers or even the Mission inlines. I'll be keeping the Bauers for outdoor hockey and work use, Eastons for indoor hockey only.

    Ice Skates (2 Pairs)
    Bauer Impact 75, size 45
    Easton Synergy SY60, size 44.5

    Inline Hockey Skates (1 Pair)
    Mission RMx Vibe 2, size 44.5

    Bauer Supreme Classic Gold's. Bauer only made them for 1 year and I am very sorry to hear that. They are a good performance skate and very comfortable. As I referee competitive minor hockey, I need a skate that feels good whether I am officitaing 1 or 3 games per day.

    I'm rolling a set of Mission Fuel 90's. Certainly an improvement over my 12-year-old Daoust's.
    Then again, when you wait that long, it's expected that technology will make a big jump.

    Updated my list. Shouldn't have to for another 5 years, at least.

    I have the RBK 6k's. The pumps are amazing. I'm probably going to buy only RBK skates from now on, they're comfy as heck.

    I have been using Bauer Supreme 4000. I bought them new back in 1993 and I have been using them ever since. The only thing I have had to do to them is back about three years ago. I had to get the blade tighten because they were clicking when I walked.

    Now they are starting the clicking noise again and it looks like I will change my first pair of laces on them.

    Oh, just to let you know. I am on the skates 10 hours a week. I maybe sharpen them twice a year.

    I have Bauer Vapour X:20 and they are great, so I would recommend you these or any better in this series.

    Got the Vapor x3.0's. I have quite narrow feet and so was told the Vapor would be a good fit for me and they definitely are! I only play at rec level so no need to go for the 5's or the 7's

    Bauer came out with a new model this year called Nexus. Bought them - glad I did. Combines recent technology with more of an "old school" fit. Great combination. Very comfortable and good performance.

    I rock the Easton Se16 White editions and have a pair of RBK 9k White Pumps when I skate out.

    Normally I'm a goalie, and I use some Graf Goaler Pro's.

    Anybody know where I could find some Nike Exalt 9 White's? The kind Federov use to use when he played with the wings? sickest (possibly heaviest) skates ever made.
