I had a pair of CCM 852 Super Tacks I bought on clearance in 2004, and I loved them. It broke my heart when I had to replace them because they're the only skates that ever fit me the way I liked, but they were finished. I went out and bought CCM V08s back in the fall, and I don't regret it at all. I got them for under $300, and they feel as good as any skates I've ever owned. I had no issues breaking them in, never had to deal with blistering or anything of that sort. My only issue is with the rocket runners, it's easy to lose your edge when you're trying to make a sharp cut because of the low profile runner (not to mention the decreased lifespan after about 12 sharpenings). All in all, I'd recommend the V08s, especially if you have canal boats instead of feet like I do.
