I didn't want to start a new thread for this, and my question feels like it belongs in this thread so here it goes: my question is not to figure out which skates pro's wear, but i WAS wondering if pro's ever wear INFERIOR skates? for example, in 2010 reebok released it skates for the years 2010 and 2011, starting with the 11k being their top of the line, then the 10k, then the 8k (you get the point). bauer released the APX's, the x7.0, x6.0, etc.

do pro's ever defer the top skates (11k, APX, total one, U+ crazy lights) in favor of an inferior skate (10k, x7.0, u+12, supreme one80, etc)? if so, i would imagine that it's because they may prefer a less-stiff boot? perhaps a faster break in period? or maybe just because they dont like the feel of the top of the line skates?
