Skate Review
 
I was wondering if anyone has used the 4k pumps or the 6k pumps,

I have the 6ks and I love em. Not too stiff, but still a lot of support. Short break in time. And at about $200 US (at least that's what I paid) it's well worth the price. It's a midlevel price that feels like a higher level skate. If you have wideish, flat feet, they're the best you can hope for. I can fit into the D width just fine, whereas a Bauer or Easton E is still a little narrow.

If ya don't mind the hijack, I'm mulling over Bauer Supreme One60's (maybe One70's) or Easton EQ3's. Anyone gotta review or experience with them?

How do the Reebok's fit compared to Bauers? I want to order a pair online but I want to be sure they'll fit. I wear a 9.5 in Bauer. Will it be the same for Reebok?

Reebok's and CCM generally have more volume at the same width compared to Bauer

But the length is the same? All the Bauer's I've used pinch the widest part of my foot just slightly and I'm ready to try something new.

That has nothing to do with length. That is a width issue. If that's the case, you will probably like Reebok. Best thing to do is to try them on before buying.
