How are Easton Synergy EQ4 Skates?

Is this a good deal?

The 3.0X and 30X are about the same price as well. I looked at the skate buying guide and those models weren't in it.

I have the Eq10's and find them fairly good for the entry level. I would assume that with the Elite blade that comes with the Eq40 and the lightened boot compared to the ones I have, would make for a great skate. At that price too, you can't beat it IMO.

They are in the skate guide, under Easton and under the Post-2010 subheading. The Vapors are definitely in it...

Read over the first page and report back

Are there any difference between the EQ4 and EQ40? Would you say that's a good price for those skates?

EQ5 line features a wider upper half of the quarter area (wider upper ankle)
EQ5 line generally have thinner tongues comparatively at each pricepoint

EQ5 line is also cut lower

If they fit you well, then yes, it's a good price. If they don't fit you well, then you should really look at something else. Synergy and Vapor are pretty different.

Seeing as you're from China, in your opinion which brand of skates generally fit Asian feet better? (Since I'm Asian)

Only skates i've ever owned, i like em, though i think my left foot is a bit fatter than my right as it's not quite as comfy. Got em on boxing day for 200, anything less than that is a steal.

I have the EQ5s. I tried on the EQ40s (the successor to the EQ4 I believe) and found them a little too restrictive in the ankle. I'm trying to work on strengthening my ankles and I found the EQ4s didn't force me to do so. I also didn't like the heel - there are pads that help lock your ankle in, and they were smaller on the EQ40s than the EQ5s.

Anyways, as others have said, try em on. The best skate on the market is the one that fits you the best.
