Is CCM's Ufoam really that good and better than anything else?
 
Hi!
I am about to buy RBK 6K (2010 model) but I keep reading about CCM and their Ufoam and was wondering if their fit is so much better than anything else or if I can achieve the same with baking and the pump on the RBK.
Thanks

If your feet have stopped growing there is only one skate for you:

GRAF

Go get properly fitted as they are designed for your feet.

The problem is that all I am reading is that within my budget less than $300 and better as close to $200 as possible, GRAF is not a good choice as I get more value and performance from other brands. Now according to what I have read if I were spending more then GRAF would be the one to get for many people

The best skate is going to be the one that fits your foot the best. Try on most everything in your price range and see what fits.

From what i've experienced, the ccm's will mold better but that doesn't necessarily mean that you'll get a better fit than the reeboks. You should go and try on everything you can in your price range to see which is the best choice for you.

I bought RBK 9K (2008 model) and the pump in one skate broke after a year. I play about 4 times per week and the skates have just about fallen apart. I bought the CCM high end skate about a month ago, baked them Sunday night and am trying them for the first time tonight. I'll let you know how it goes.
