If you need the pump to lock in your heel, you risk ending up with a useless skate after the very short warranty expires. If the skate fits well without inflating the pump, then you have the unnecessary extra weight of the unused pump/bladder system in your skate.

I switched to Bauer Flexlites and have never been happier. Just my 2 cents.
Odd, I've had mine for...4 years and never had a problem and I play 5+ times a week. Though mine are 9ks.
