Also, does anyone know if Sport Chek/Hockey Experts will be holding a skate sale soon?
This is the time of year where older models (X:60 line, 11K line, TotalOne/One100 line) are already on clearance pricing to accommodate the newer models. 'Sales' typically start around August. As for the X:50s, good luck finding sizes because they are already pretty thin this time of year.
HX has the X:40 for $230, EQ5 and U+Pro for $250 or less. HX will also price match.
