Now that's something I've never heard about Grafs! While heavier than the superlight skates out there, I would say the Grafs are
aggressive than any of the other brands out there and require you to skate them differently due to the forward cant of the skate. Some people don't like this.
To the OPs point, I would say, no, the 705 doesn't fit anything like any of the skates offered by Reebok, Bauer and CCM. I wear 705s and I can't wear any of the other manufacturer's skates. And don't even think about buying Graf's via the mail/internet without getting properly fitted. Each model fits very differently and if you get one that is not right for your foot, you will sorely regret it.
