You are being ripped off. Period.

If they've had a skate for 7 years, you should be able to get it (top of the line, mind you) for no more than $100. And those aren't top of the line skates.

My buddy got into hockey in 2006 and bought Vapor6s for $140, new. Seriously that is expensive for those skates. You shoudn't be paying more than $50 for those new skates. And IIRC, those skates suck, too. Im pretty sure the steel doesn't come out, and it overall was pretty cheap. He quit hockey 6 months later stating he hated his equipment, but didn't want to spend another 500 to get better equipment.

I really do not recommend getting those, unless you totally can get them for like $40.
I've already been using them for 6 years and wish to have another pair of exactly the same thing because they're awesome.

$99 is still a good price ... post a link with some exacts and I'll buy those at your lower price you claimed I should be able to.

I can't find any so your help would be appreciated. If you cannot then I am getting these from that site. I still say there are not any for any cheaper. I paid close to $300 ($270+ tax or some crap, I forgets now) in 2002 for the ones I own already and thay have been absolutely super.

Also they have the Custom+ Tuuk holders and runners.

300$ really? I hope this is Canadian money during 02 and not USD. You got ripped off. I don't know anywhere that would have that old of a vapor6. Hell if your looking to buy some my buddy still has his pair and would sell them for 20USD + shipping.

Thanks for the links to all the incredible bargains YOU were bragging about for the same skate at $40.

The price for the Vapor 6s in 2002 were $269.99 plus tax comes to "around" $300 in the US. I didn't get ripped off, the 6s were the second to top of the line skate. For $99 an incredible bargain.

Whatev ... thanks.

Being new to hockey they would probably be good for you for what you are going to do with them.

never owning any I cannot comment too much but can tell you usually the cheaper skates are not as well built with regards to protection, stability and materials. usually also the blade holder and runner are okay but not top nothc and will get duller faster but will work like a blade should on a skate at least.

Hey for the money $50 is good for these for what you will be using them for. I am sure some putz will answer your post with "You wasted your money blah blah blah, that is garbage blah blah blah" but some people just like to pull the wings off of flies and burn ants with a magnifying glass.

For what YOU are going to be doing these are fine. If you decide to take hockey more seriously and play on a team after getting better at playing you should consider better skates but that won't be for a couple of years from now anyway.

Enjoy what you bought and have fun with them
