How do you get the tongue of your skate to flop around?

Why do you think the Bauer Supreme TotalOne is coming with different flex tongues? There was a ton of Euro players back in the day that cut off the tendon guard on the back of the skate. I am not sure but I think those guys are known for a certain skating style...
OP, try it out. That's the best I can say. I used to skip the top two eyelits and fold the tongue down. I switched to playing with tongues in and like the feel better. I also think that the type of skate you wear will factor in. I still play tounges out on my CCM Pro Tacks that I converted to inline but on my CCM U+ Pros for ice, I go tongues in. A teammate of mine likes the style factor of tongues out but the feel of tongues in. So, he bought some white felt tongues, cut them down a bit, sewed them on like two inches from the top of the original tongue, so that when he laces the skates he laces around the white tongue so it flops. Like the laces are on the outside of it all the way to the tongue then they tuck behind but stay on top of the original tongue. Kind of a cool idea if you're in to that. I will try to post pics for anyone that wants to see.
