TotalOne NXG's....

Tried them on last night....these things are freaking LIGHT! I currently skate in the RBK 9K's and I considered those "light" but the NXG feels like it's 20-30% lighter.

Super stiff boot too...cant imagine how nice they'd feel once baked.

Anyone else considering them?

Honestly I like the ONE.9 better. I'm not a fan of the tongue on the NXG, or even Total One. But that could be because I'm an ol'school kinda of guy and like a traditional felt tongue. I wear my tongue on the outside and like it to have a little bit of flop and the NXG is a shaped/form fitting type tongue (with that adj. lace bite bar) which I've always hated. There really isn't a huge difference between the ONE.9 and the NXG's (Boot physical construction is the same) and for the extra $150 its just not worth it. Plus the lining on the NXG while comfortable looking, it doesn't look to be as durable as the ONE.9.

Just my 2cents.

This tendon guard mobility thing is quite intriguing. You can definitely feel it flex even by walking around in it...imagine the mobility on ice. However, durability will be a concern for sure, especially with the multitude of people taking their skates off by pushing down on the guard...

If I had a crap load of money, I'd love to try a custom pair of TO's, but the stock ones don't lock my heels in unfortunately.

Same here Jarick lol. My heel locks well in D but too narrow in the forefoot. Moving to a EE is a bit better in the forefoot but my heel no longer locks. I would probably go with whatever heel width the D was in along with an E mid foot and a EE forefoot (though I don't know if that's possible).

Try to find some prostocks that have an A in the heel.

I actually was a little too narrow for D width in the heel still (and it was tight up front). What is that then, AA/EE or something?

I'm happy with my Grafs for now and hopefully the next several years.

EA should be a good fit then.

Do the drain holes really make a difference? My 9K's have them so I dont really know what it's like NOT to have drain holes in skates...

The One.9's do not have em'.

I've heard that they do. I'm kind of in the same boat as you in that my S15s are vented. If you're ever curious, why not seal up the holes on one boot and compare after a game?

Interesting, my 9k's 2007-08 editions had them though I'm not sure if the newer style did. Honestly you could drill your own holes, just use a good bit (diamond or titanium) and one that is small. Space the holes out descently and usually no more then 3-4 (line or diamond pattern). I use to do that way back in JR's (as well as for customers when I ran a pro-shop myself) when skates didn't come with vents/drains. It was something I noticed all the NHL/Minor Trainers doing to the players skates. Though they did it so that when they were on the skate dryer it could vent.
