I was hoping you could do the same for me! I own a pair of Easton EQ30 6.5 D skates for the last two years. I play 2x a week and closing in on mediacracy... I play with some really good people in pickup skates and when the puck hits my toe-box it hurts pretty bad. I weigh 150 lb.
I think they fit pretty good.
My heel fits really well but there is a tiny bit of slippage. It seems really wide around the ankle but I dont know if that's intentional. Lastly my toes feel like they have a ton of rppm which may or may not be a problem.
I'm looking to spend up to $500. It's a present I'm receiving from about 6-7 family members.
