RIP Bauer Supreme Comps :(
So last night, my 11 year old Bauer Supreme Composite skates finally kicked the bucket. The skate fell apart at the foot, the seams ripped open and I think it's time for a new pair.

Now I'm looking at the XXX's or the XXXX's -- what's the best price for either/or and where can I get it (online)?

I've been quoted $499 for the XXXX's online.

A little help?

$499 seems right on for the XXXXs, at least, thats what I have seen them for.

You probably wont' be able to get a price for XXXX unless you call companies up. XXX I've seen for about $400

I just saw the XXV's for $270. I probably wouldn't notice much of a difference between teh XXXX's and XXV's anyway, considering my ancient standards for skates.

I may just go with them -- provided no one has any bad input. :)

The XXV's seem like a solid buy granted that they fit you properly.

I'd suggest you try them on and spend some time in them. They may not fit like your old Bauer's. Lots of things have changed over the past eleven years.

Also, if you plan on buying online. Get ready to pay for heat molding, sharpening and a radius.

IMO, if I were to buy a skate in it's first year of production. I would buy from a store, not online. You never know what may go wrong. I read plenty of stories about all kinds of issues with the One90's last year.

last years vapors don't even fit like this years. Go and try on some skates and buy what fits the best.

i got a pair of XXV's about 2 months ago and they fit is unbelieveable.
