Wasn't the old Supreme One90/One95 really stiff? Maybe times have changed?
See now that's where you misunderstood. Although you're correct about the placing of the skates in their respective lines, you have to remember that while that Supreme line was released 2 years ago, that Vapor line was release 5 years ago and new top end skates have traditionally replaced the previous cycle's top end. With that logic, you can compare the XXV with the X:40, X 5.0 and somewhere between a One 70 and One 80. So the guy is right. It wouldn't surprise me if they were equally as stiff. It would also not surprise me if the XXV was a bit stiffer.
Yes the One90/95 were quite stiff, you can compare them to the One100/One.9s now, even One.8s to some extent.
