2002 bauer Vapor 6 skates (own 2 pair, one new bought last summer at a closeout $99 price yipppeee)



"A" level beer league / average beer league player for that A level. I also play in the "not so much" pickup games as a recreational type thing with some guys I know who range from not very good to pretty damned good. We laugh more than anything especially when someone just drops their stick and tackles someone.

I enjoy their company.

They started making the G series a few years ago. It's basically all the old models (703, 705, etc) but with new material.

The white ones are part of the G series, but they were black before that. G series is just the carbon versions of the 7 series, to put it in basic terms. They're at least 5 years old.

They've stuck with the traditional skates for the most part in the 7 series. The liner is a bit more modern, but it's more traditional as a whole than anything you'll find from Bauer, Easton, or CCM/Rbk.

I fit a former NCAA Div 1 player for new skates a while ago. He wanted new skates and was coming from old Bauer 2000s (pretty sure that was the model). He asked to try One95s so I fit him for those. They fit well, but they were just way to stiff. Had him try the 705s and he was much happier.

when/why did graf switch from the plastic outsoles to the composite

also did that did those 705s you sold the former div 1 player have the cobra holders or did you put tuuks on them?

Not sure about the answer to your first question. I'll see what I can find tomorrow when I'm back in the shop.

they had the Cobras. He was fine with them. Come to think of it, he might have been skating in Grafs and just wanted to get something new. The group he skates with has a Wed night time slot. If I see him, I'll ask.

If I was going to get a new pair right now I'd be trying for a closeout One95. They fit my foot damn well even before baking and I've seen enough of them to know they can take a beating. Tried on the One100s the other day and they felt even better. Lol. No need to spend right now considering I'm on the shelf for a few months.
