Similar Skate
 
What's close to an 8.5EE Vapor? I was thinking of checking out some skates, would the Fuel XP be a similar fit? Vector? Want to get an idea of what to look for possibly when I go out skate hunting.

What Vapor model are you looking at? There is a big difference between the bottom and top of the Vapor Line. How much do you want to spend?

Well I'm wearing a pro stock Vapor 10...but I'm gonna hold off and run these into the ground first as I wanna wait on the new Vapor models.

I have seen the Vapor 40's online for $450.00 which seems to be a good deal. I would like to see them in person to see how they fit. I really like the Supreme 70 as a replacement for my old Micron Air 90s

Well actually I've changed my mind possibly.....I think I might go for some old Vapors on closeout as I've seen a few. But what else could I look for if I like the Vapor fit, that's my main question. My LHS hasn't much left but I could see about them finding me a pair if there's something similar.

Mission skates seem to fit similar to Vapors sometimes - so maybe try a 9.5 or 10E/EE. CCM Vectors might work too, 8.5D or E.

Why not go with the Vapor XX or XXX skate?

sc37 04-01-2007 02:26 PM

Thinking of going a lower level Vapor possibly..and the new Vapor line does come out soon. Going XX or XXX is pointless for me, I don't need that much skate and don't want to spend that much for a skate either.
