I got these this fall after 8 years in Grafs. I've only skated in them a few times because of a sprained ankle, but I can tell the big difference in the boot already. It feels as if less energy is expended in turning than in a Graf 700 series skate. Its probably the boot, as it is more one piece/stiffer than the Graf skates I have.. I take it the leather in my skates lose a bit of energy transfer to strides.
I've never been hard on skates, so I don't expect durability to be an issue. I guess it only really is if you skate 5-6 times a week and/or play a grinding, rough style.
