As far as bearings go... 3's are probably to low for anyone except a goalie. But 5's and 7's you wont see much difference. I'd just go with 5's. The wheels are just as important if not more though.

As far as the skate. I use CCM's religiously. I usually will buy a pair of CCM ice skates, and install a frame I like. Usually my trusty Sure-grip. What I've done the past couple of times is go to HockeyMonkey and or HockeyOutlet and buy the skates that are last years, or the year before model for like half the cost. Right now I've got some Vectors that I love.
