it'll be really telling when the apx(basically the vapor fit version of the to/one100) hits full stride to see how many pro's embrace it or if any prefer to stay in the 7.0 which is basically the x60 replacement.

Graf lists the players that use their skates http://www.grafcanada.com/hockey/pro_hockey_players.php

At first glance it looks like a huge list, but count only those players without the (*) those with the asterisk only use their footbeds.

I don't know that you could really call either the TO a "traditionally built" skate. I mean, yeah, the Supremes are blacker than the Vapors, I guess.

I'd imagine that the guys who want traditionally built skates would be wearing S9s.

i didn't mean traditional as in like old school supremes, but more in the sense of materials and build...like how the supremes are a fully 360 composite skate with the alive outer...the epitome of a modern design.
