Got my skates back from getting new holders put on (went from t'blades to the Graf cobras) and my lhs did an awesome job with it, despite having to redrill all the holes. They used all copper rivets, and you can barely tell there were ever other holders on the boots.

Skating on them though, was weird! The runners are a lot shorter than my old ones, and while they feel great for tight turns, I had a really hard time adjusting to stopping or pivoting on them. I think I'll end up looking them (I'd better, the change in holders was pretty permanent), but I haven't fallen that much doing simple things like gliding forward since I was a kid!
