Rather than start a new thread, I figured I'd ask my question here.
I am thinking about trying the shin guards on the inside of the tongues for the first time to see what the extra forward flex would give my skating ability and partially for aesthetic purposes. I tried my skates on and marked a line where the bottom of the shin guard would go if I wore them on the inside of the tongue. From the middle of my knee cap to this line is approximately 15.5".
My assumption is I will have to go 15" and sacrifice the half inch or so tongue by my tongue and hope I don't take a puck there. I have X50s which do have a padded tongue that would overlap the bottom of the shinguard so maybe that would not be an issue at all.
Any advice on which size to go for whether 15" or 16"?
