Having talked to fellow teammates
who have upgraded like myself, you can just tell that decent (not necessarily high end) skates makes the game way more fun to play. Especially guys who started
as an adult in their first or second season. Myself included.
Mind you, just make sure the 6K's are the best fit for you. If you find
a similar Bauer (or Easton or CCM) that fits better with similar support and cost, buy those.
All other equipment, as long as it keeps me safe and comfortable,
I don't care if it's "low" end. Including sticks.
Well, I don't have the biggest arches so eventually I will probably have to consider insoles, but I feel I'm l little young, the 6Ks are on special, so I figure it's the same amount I paid fort CCM Vector 4s, an it's a better skate, I might get it baked not sure yet. Its snug with out the pump, light skate, I'm considering skating with weights on the skate, to improve my speed.
As for sticks, as long as they get the job done, I don't see the point o getting high end sticks unless their on special or if you're an AA or AAA player, which I'm not. Right now the 8K sickick 3 is 50% off so it's like 100, I found my old stick CCM vector 10 for 120 lol, I think te choice is simple.
I can't for the life of me fine the 4K.
