I wear the 703's. Fit em myself based on the guide on the Graf site and just trying on the different models. Have a super narrow foot. Took me a little while to get used to the balance point, coming from CCM 652's. Also had to punch out a hot spot on the right pinkie toe. Biggest thing was how long it took to fully break them in, which was almost 9 months, skating 2-3 times a week. And I did do the baking. They just took forever to break in and there was a lot of pain involved.

One of these days I'm going to go by Hockey Xsport and have them fit me and see if I'm really in the right Graf model.


EDIT: Wow, those Reeboks were worn down to nothing in the front. And, as others have said, getting the profile done on those Grafs will help the turning. I remember the first time I skated on my Grafs when the blades were new like that.
