When you say you can't get enough power, what does that mean?

I would still try to have them punched out near the toe cap and see how that feels. It's usually free or cheap and will let you know how well the heel fits. The heel/ankle is key. If that doesn't lock in, the feet are moving around, and you're not able to use your edges and transfer power to the ice.

You should go to a good shop and have them size you for skates properly.
I plan on it.. I said earlier that I must have my first 4 laces loose or my toes will kinda overlap due to tightness.. problem is i cant find a good middle ground with tightness where there is no blisters or toes don't overlap. With the whole power thing I know im a lot faster then I should be and I think with half my laces being loose that has a lot to do with it.
