I agree, but that wasn't my point. My point was that Bauer's boot design is not a 'narrow' boot relative to other manufacturers. It is average to wide. Nobody with a B width or narrower is going to be able to get a Bauer to fit them well, unless they go for the full custom high end stuff, which I'm not even sure Bauer offers to the general public anymore. An off the rack Vapor is not going to hold a true B width foot properly.
And I'm with Ponder on the weight thing. The weight difference between a Graf and Bauer will not affect skating one bit.
