They basically offer 6 different fit profiles based on those 3 attributes and all in 3 widths. That's 18 different fits for the same size skate.
I have a narrow-pronounced heel. Bauer doesn't even offer a skate like that. Look at the side view of a Graf G35x and then look at a Vapor or Supreme.
Fit is Graf's bread and butter. It's comfort and technology(weight) where they are slightly behind.
Not arguing against Graf but I was only posting based on what I've seen from Graf skates brought in.
I know they have different fits but imo not enough to justify skipping past the other brands and going for Graf. But like you said if someone runs out of options for the major brands, going Graf is the next logical step for sure.
