Well, I spent just short of an hour skating in the Grafs yesterday(had the whole ice surface to myself!), and it was interesting after not skating on them in almost a year.

There is a lot more movement in the ankle area than the Bauers, not as bad as I remember though. It was easier to find the outside edges for sure, crossovers and turns were much easier to do than the Bauers. Overall fit was much better, no pressure points on my feet, I was wearing thin Bauer skate socks. The Grafs didn't feel as stable, but I'm pretty sure that is inherent to the design, trading the stability for ease of manoeuvrability.

Going to have to do a back to back comparison next week of both skates, but I may go back to the Grafs.
