New Vapors.....I have a few Q's

I got back into skating after about 13 years off. I had Bauer 4000's but the holders were cracked so I got a pair of Vapors and I have a couple of questions about the difference and if I should change the pitch, radius etc....

The first thing i noticed is that my stride is shorter in the vapors. Its hard to explain but if I extend my leg fully there is no push at the end of my stride so I was forced to shorten it. Would a forward pitch help this?

I also feel more off balance but this seems to be more since I tried FBV. I may go back to the standard sharpening to see if that makes a difference. Any thoughts on this?
