I am between the
Bauer Vapor X4.0
I play about once per week in a mens league/division that is fairly competitive. I have found both skates on sale for the same price, so I am wondering if one is significantly better than the other?
I tried on both, and am a D width in the CCM and an EE in the Bauer.
I could definitely feel pressure points on my ankle bones in the CCMs, although this may be alleviated after baking them and breaking them in a bit.
The Bauers felt more comfortable out of the box and there must be better cushioning in the ankles as I felt no pressure points / irritations in that area at all.
Any thoughts / opinions on which I should go with would be greatly appreciated!!!
