Takes time to adjust, I adjusted just fine after a few ice times. The problem will be fit, the only skates that will fit similar are the supremes(30/50/70) or the flexlites. The Supremes will be a bit tighter and the flexlites will be a hair wider. Try the skates on before you make the plunge.

RBKs are the closest fit to the Tacks, the only difference is that the heel is slightly wider.
^ Bingo.

I switch from Bauer 4000's to CCM 652's a very long time ago and hated the transition. My entire skating ability was thrown out of alignment. I went right back and bought a pair of 7000's and then Vapor XX's right after that and never looked back. I would suggest you stick with CCM.
