My questions is: I'm skating in Bauer Vapor X2.0, which I got on clearance on hockey monkey. More experienced players told me to upgrade my skates so I could feel the difference between cheap and not so ceap skate. So far those cheap Bauers worked great for me, but I've never skated in skates over $100. I'm considering to get Reebok 16K (one dude at my practice told that they are pretty awesome). So any advice on Reeboks or any other brand would be much appreciated. I plan to spend 250-300$.
If Vapors fit you well, you should stick with that line, RBKs fit wider. The Vapor X6.0 is on sale at hockey monkey, it's almost top of the line at a pretty good price if you can find your size. X7.0 is on sale as well, it's same as the old X60 or new X:90 or 100 can't remember which, but it might be too stiff for somebody just starting out.
