The last time I played in a tournament, we shared a large locker room with 5 other teams. Wondering if I might switch my skate brand someday, I took a little survey paying special attention to durability.

Bauers, CCMs and Grafs seem to hold up quite well. But the RBK skates were nearly all in a state of premature deterioration. 3 pairs had broken Achilles tendon supports and most had issues with the stitching. Their owners reported that while the pump system felt good in the beginning, it quickly lost the ability to hold pressure.

I have a generally favorable opinion towards RBK equipment but I'd stay away from their skates.
