Btw, is there a big difference between 13inch seniors from those manufacturers and 14 inches?
There will be a difference. I am 5'7", and some 13" shins don't give me full protection (small gap on the side near the ankle). I am using the Easton ST in 14" right now and they give full coverage. They are the limit of what I can wear properly, and I have to wear them on the outside of my skate tongue for ice because the guard on the tongue flexes into the top of my foot if I tuck them in. I tuck them in in roller since they have the softer tongues.
And the above is why I don't order much from Hockey Monkey. Their shipping details never update, I will have the product on the doorstep before I get a tracking number.
Try IW next time if they have what you want (I don't believe they normally carry Graf). I've had them go out of stock once, and it was due to their warehouse inventory being off, not because of real time and they upgraded me. Had another time I e-mailed them about a size and they added a skate to the site they just received.
