Are you saying mid level skates are best for rec league players because they'll actually be optimal or because it wouldn't be worth it to go to top of the line skates? I'm kind of looking at replacing skates (I have Graf 735's, I feel like I need a stiffer boot). I've pretty much stuck to just playing pick up, although I'll probably end up playing in a beer league sometime. I probably belong in men's B or so.
