More than a little frustrating because I always struggled with crossovers and tight turns. With the 12ks fitting much better I can feel and control my edges so much better. I've made more progress in the month I've been wearing the 12Ks than in the three months before I made the switch.
Yea, I got the feeling they were a bit big when they started wobbling when I was flying down the ice. Hmm, I'll look into it. I wish I could trial these skates :p The whole "Sharpen them, no returns" sucks.
