Does anybody NOT use Graf skates anymore??
When I used them they treated my feet better than anything Bauer, CCM or at the time Nike produced. It also seemed to help me take longer strides and I was alot stronger on my skates.
Just curious as to why nobody uses them anymore??
I'd say availability, price and design have held them back a bit.
Grafs have a lot of forward lean. That could be why you felt stronger on your skates and felt like you were taking bigger strides. I felt stronger on my skates when I switched from Graf to RBK. I thought it also improved my balance. Guess the forward lean didn't benefit me.
