Does a pair of $600 skates make THAT MUCH of a difference then a $200 pair

The average beer leauger has no business buying $600 - $800 skates. Unless you are rich. Yes, skates are your most important piece of equipment but fit is the most important factor with skates. A lot of beginners think that if they buy a top-level skate that is lighter they will skate like a pro
Skating is all about technique. For a good skater I feel the best value is a skate that is just below the top of the line which still can be about $500. I skate in Graf 705's which are just below the G series. You will never see the 705's on sale as they are Graf's best selling skate.
