Look, try a pair out. If you have a friend who wears a similar size, try his out. I can say in having had cheaper and very expensive skates, there's a bit of a difference. I weigh around 170 but can deal with top level stiffness just fine. I think I can say honestly, those with better technique will benefit from stiffer skates more. As for taking shots off them, it's usually not a matter of top vs bottom line, but which make/model you're wearing and where you get hit. Top of the line skates will probably help a little in that area but I don't know how much, (retail).
