What skates are you wearing currently?

I'm hoping people will list their height/weight (accurately), skill level/length of time playing the game and their current skates.

6'1 (almost)
190
One95 skates
B league/ above average beer league player.

A division beer league

love the one95s

im in the A division but our league just recently got an A division. we used to have a B and C. only 3 of the 5 B teams moved up to A with all of teh A calibre players moving up to the A league but some didnt have teams because their team didnt move up so they had to be put on a team

we only have like 10 legit A level players, me not being one of them, 2 of them former pros the rest former college and junior players

I can easily keep up with the 10 players (maybe not the 2 former pros) I just dont stand out but there are ALOT worse players than me in the A division on some of these teams. some players are just on an A team because of the aforementioned pros. they carry the team and make those non A league players look half decent by making tape to tape passes to them and letting them just glide around the ice and they still score

i cant score. ive missed about 8 open nets so far this season. i have 1 goal. the puck has bounced over my stick, ive shot wide several times and ive hit posts, i just cant bury it

Good mid-range skate that does everything I need it to do. I spend my money on sticks, not skates.

Currently I just play the local advanced pick-up with college and old semi-pro guys. I finished four years of NCAA hockey and played in a house A league last summer, but found it was too much to pay for a very limited schedule and I sometimes had to miss games because of my job, which made it worse. With this pickup group that I discovered around November, the competition is as good, if not better, I only have to pay when I show, so I'm not losing money if I can't make it, and we get 2 hours of ice time twice a week.

Vapor XXV/Vapor XXVR

I started playing last spring in my last opportunity to play some youth hockey before I went to college and played three games. I got on an adult instructional team for this past fall/winter season but a grade 3 concussion I received after a serious accident meant I had to miss the past 6 months. Started up again this past week and was able to play in a tournament on my dad's team this past weekend and picked up my first point (an assist) in the four game tournament.

So total experience: 3 games of In-house Midget A/B
4 games in a mixed skill level Adult tournament

Much more skate than I really need, but got a great deal on them due to a warranty on some One95s and they are the only non-custom skate that actually fit me.

You can actually find really good deals on these skates right now. Easton has just revamped their whole SyNergy skate line.
