I had my eyes on the Bauer 2090, then was also recently shown a pair of Grafs that I quite liked. Thoughts?
My g/f got me a pair of Easton Synergy 1300c's this past Christmas.

I am in love with these skates. They have ZERO break in time, and they are so light that I don't feel like I have anything on my feet.

I used to hate all of the new skates. I loved my old Megas and Dauost..and these where the first pair of new skates I have gotten in the last 10 years I loved.

They where $500 in December and I heard they dropped to $250 or so recently (New models coming out).
