Question regarding high end skates

Hey guys, I'm seriously considering getting a pair of one 95 bauer skates. I tried on a few different pairs, and they were by far the most comfortable. They have a pretty hefty price tag though.

Right now I'm wearing an old pair of Supremes- i think they're something like 6700s or something like that. I'm a fairly good skater right now- good top end speed, etc, but not a world beater. I was wondering how much of an impact upgrading to the one 95s will have.

I know that the pitch of the skate is fairly high, and that the lightspeed 2.0 runners have extremely long blades. Will I eventually notice a difference in skating speed, or is the biggest difference between my old skates and the new ones just in comfort?
