Hoping you guys can help. I dont have much $$$, and the prices are a bit inflated here in Australia.
I've narrowed down my available choices to the following:

Bauer One.4 ($119)
Bauer Nexus200 ($129)
Bauer Vapour x2.0 ($169)
Bauer One.5 ($209)
Bauer Vapour x3.0 ($219)

I have a narrowish foot if that helps. I'm not in it to play competitively several times a week, I play once a week in a casual beginner to intermediate practice environment, so protection isn't high on the priority list. I'm looking for something that's light and comfortable. I have both the One.4 & One.5 and Vapour X2.0 & X3.0 because I was wondering if the extra amount for the upgrade was justifiable.

Thanks for any help.

EDIT: FYI, it's an online order, as there is nowhere in my area that I can actually try on skates. I can send them back if they are the wrong size.
I just spoke to a friend of mine who did a skate review article for the Hockey News, and he recommended the Vapours..
